Bad news – Taipei Game Show 2020, the first major video game convention of the year, has been cancelled.
The organizers of the game show cited fears of the Wuhan coronavirus as the reason for its cancellation. The game show will be held in Summer 2020 instead, with details made in the coming days.
Full details below:
2020 Taipei Game Show was originally scheduled to take place on Feb. 6 – Feb. 9. However, due to the serious outbreak of Wuhan coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the event to this summer. The location remains unchanged at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1. The specific time and date will be announced in the upcoming days by the organizing committee.
Taipei Game Show is one of the iconic annual networking events. With that in mind, W.H.O. has declared global emergency as Wuhan coronavirus spreads. Considering mass gatherings like Taipei Game Show increase the chance of cluster infections, the organizing committee has decided to steer away from such unthinkable risks. We sincerely ask for your understanding on such a major decision. The detail of the execution on the postponement will be carefully discussed, and will be announced in the upcoming days.
The organizing committee is paying close attention to the announcements from Taiwan CDC. Once again, we would like to express our sincere gratitude on all of your understanding and cooperation. We wish you safe and healthy. Thank you.
