G2E Asia Rescheduled for December

The postponed Global Gaming Expo Asia has been rescheduled for December 1-3 at the Venetian Macau, getting the show in before the end of the year.

The show is the Asian version of the popular trade show that's held in Las Vegas annually, and allows casino operators to get the lay of the land in regard to new table games, slots, poker products, and more. G2E Asia is typically held in the summer, but the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has caused the show to delay until things hopefully calm down a bit. China has been hit hard by the virus, and is just now beginning to open up from hard lockdowns.

Commenting on the change Reed Exhibitions China COO Josephine Lee said, "The health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, and employees is paramount.

"The rapidly evolving situation makes it too difficult to host G2E Asia in a safe environment this summer. Based on our continued monitoring of the global health crisis, and in consultation with our customers and the Macao government, we have made the decision to postpone G2E Asia to December. We look forward to continuing to support Macao's resilient gaming industry and its recovery when we reconvene in December."

I think it's a very wise choice based on the recent events. By that time (and hopefully many months sooner than that) life will be back to normal.
