he organizers of PGS 2020 have decided to postpone the holding of the event scheduled for
June 17 and 18 and set the new dates of August 12 and 13, 2020 as a consequence of the global crisis that is causing the coronavirus.
"The world is experiencing a very critical situation right now due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
Many governments have applied extreme measures in an effort to curb the transmission and
spread of this virus," said organizing company AMG in a statement released today. "In Peru, the government has decided to suspend classes in colleges and universities and recommended that all gatherings and events of large crowds be suspended. Following these recommendations and with the intent of guaranteeing the quality and attendance to which we have been accustomed to with PGS, we have decided to postpone the show until August 12th and 13th of this year. We are in the hopes that by that time, many of the unanswered concerns have been resolved and/or dealt with and things will be back to somewhat normal."
"We also know that due to this issue, many of the companies could have problems with receiving machines, equipment and accessories that come from the Asian region," they added. "Additionally, travel for many would also be problematic with the current situation as it is and the Peruvian government requiring all visitors arriving from Europe to quarantine for a period of 15 days.
This of course would lead to cancellations by many for the event planned for June. For this
reason and to ensure maximum attendance we have decided to make the decision to postpone
