G2E Asia 2020 postponed until July 28-30
Tuesday, Reed Exhibitions announced to its partners that the 2020 rendition of its annual G2E Asia tradeshow has been postponed from its original May dates to July 28-30 due to the global health crisis of the coronavirus.
“We made this decision in consultation with our exhibitors and the Macao government, and out of an abundance of caution. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and thank our customers for their continued support of G2E Asia,” said Josephine Lee, chief operating officer, Reed Exhibitions China.
The event, which welcomed a record-setting 16,400 attendees in 2018, has been held yearly since 2007 in the Venetian Macao.
In an email sent to all registered attendees, Reed offered its sincere apologies to those whose travel plans were disrupted by the change.
“G2E Asia, and its organizers the American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions, fully understand and appreciate the level of planning that is required to participate in an event like ours. Regrettably, the COVID-19 outbreak and related travel and commercial restrictions make those preparations too difficult to hold the show as planned in May.”
As of Tuesday, the number of global cases of coronavirus has surged past 90,000, with 10,000 reported cases outside of China.
