G2E Asia gives up on 2020, focuses on 2021

G2E Asia said it was dropping plans to run any shows in Asia this year in favour of focusing on its events in 2021.

Reed Exhibitions China said G2E Asia will return to the Venetian Macau from May 25-27, while G2E Asia @ the Philippines will be in Manila from November 10-11.

“G2E Asia made the difficult decision to postpone its 2020 shows as continued travel and restrictions present too much uncertainty for holding successful and safe events this year,” said Josephine Lee, chief operating officer, Reed Exhibitions China. “In consultation with our customers, exhibitors, and local authorities, we explored every option to safely hold these programs this year, but ultimately found the best course of action is to postpone for 2021.

“By shifting our focus to 2021, we can ensure that we meet the high expectations for these important events that we share with our valued attendees and exhibitors. This postponement will ease show preparations for all G2E stakeholders and allow us to focus on the safest and most successful G2E Asia events yet in 2021.”
