MGS Entertainment Show has become the latest gaming industry trade show to be cancelled in 2020.
Organizers revealed on Friday that this year’s event, originally scheduled for 17 to 19 November, will not go ahead as planned due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and concerns over the health and safety of visitors.
MGS Entertainment Show will return instead from 16 to 18 November 2021 at The Venetian Macao.
“After an extensive communication among the industry, the rescheduling has been mutually decided by a vote among our members, exhibitors and partners based on the current industry status and business opportunities,” organizers said.
“We believe that our clients’ interests always come first and we shall provide our exhibitors and visitors with a safe and health exhibition environment, sufficient time for meticulous preparation and eventually a commercially viable trade show.”
MGS said it plans to launch “a variety of innovative events and services to explore business value and accelerate the recovery of the industry,” ahead of next year’s event.
G2E Asia, ICE Asia and SiGMA Manila, the Phil-Asian Gaming Expo and ASEAN have all postponed their 2020 events until next year.
MGS is organized by the Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA).
