The Phil-Asian Gaming Expo (PAGE) has announced that Manila’s SMX Convention Centre will be the single venue for PAGE 2021, having previously planned to jointly host PAGE 2021 at the nearby World Trade Center (WTC).
PAGE organizers revealed via a Tuesday announcement that the streamlined show, scheduled to take place from 29 to 31 July 2021, represents their recognition of the challenges that have faced the industry in 2020 and the need to take small but steady steps forward as industry trade shows return.
“Although we had originally planned to hold PAGE at two venues concurrently, we have decided that it would be better to focus on a single venue in 2021 where we can welcome our industry friends back with open arms,” a PAGE representative said.
“We look forward to providing a memorable show and comprehensive social platform whereby businesses and colleagues can take the opportunity to once again meet face to face at SMX.”
PAGE was first held in 2019 but like most industry trade shows was forced to cancel in 2020 as a result of COVID-19.
