TCSJOHNHUXLEY calls for G2E Asia to be postponed

Gaming industry supplier TCSJOHNHUXLEY has appealed to its fellow G2E Asia 2020 exhibitors, calling for them to stand together and advocate for the show to be postponed to the fourth quarter of 2020.

“The organizer of G2E Asia, Reed Exhibitions, has decided to postpone the show until the end of July, however even these new dates are far too close for any exhibitors to be able to think about taking part,” said the company in a public letter. 

“Having consulted with our customers, it is our firm belief that very few operators outside of Macau will want to, or be able to attend a show in July, even if it could go ahead at that time. We face challenging trading times and if customer volumes are significantly reduced along with the difficulty of moving products around the world, we have to ask ourselves if this trade show is commercially viable.”

The company has also blasted Reed Exhibitions, the organizer of G2E Asia for ignoring requests to defer the show.

“TCSJOHNHUXLEY has approached Reed Exhibitions to reconsider their revised dates and defer the show until Q4 or cancel it entirely. Unfortunately, these requests have fallen on deaf ears.”

“To go ahead with the show under these circumstances is a ludicrous combination of sheer folly and corporate profiteering,” added Tristan Sjöberg, Executive Chairman of TCSJOHNHUXLEY.

The company has encouraged other exhibitors and industry professionals to take a stand and advocate for the show to be moved to the end of the year at the earliest.

In line with this note, Asia Gaming Brief would like to stress that it has been in constant close communication with the industry and its clients since announcing its revised July dates for the ASEAN Gaming Summit 2020 back in February. 

AGB has continued to keep a very close eye on developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the safety of its participants at its top priority. 

An announcement relating to ASEAN Gaming Summit 2020 will be made shortly.
