Expo the latest to be cancelled due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic.
Australia.- The 2020 Australasian Gaming Expo has been cancelled by its organisers due to restrictions on large gatherings as a result of Covid-19.
The decision to cancel the event by Australia’s Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) is in conjunction with an updated Public Health Order issued on May 14 by the NSW Government.
The order extends restrictions from June 29 to August 14, and the Expo had been scheduled to run from August 11-13, 2020.
GTA CEO, Chris Muir, said: “The government did announce a three-stage easing roadmap, but even when fully implemented that roadmap does not allow for more than 100 people to attend a venue such as ICC Sydney.
“We’ve already seen some significant initiatives from AGE exhibitors as they support businesses with technology and physical distancing measures. We’ll continue to connect buyers with sellers as our industry slowly starts its road-to-recovery.”
The cancellation follows the Phil-Asian Gaming Expo, which postponed its event until January 2021.
