Due to continued hardships in Australia related to Covid-19, the decision has been made by the organisers of the Australasian Gaming Expo to postpone the event.

nbsp;With the Department of Health managing the current COVID-19 outbreak in Australia as a health emergency and the NSW lockdown extended with no end date in sight, the Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) organisers have made the unavoidable decision to postpone the event.

"Given the proximity to the AGE, border closures, and the unknown restrictions of the government's 'roadmap' out of lockdown, we needed to act now", said Chris Muir, CEO of the Gaming Technologies Association (GTA), who organises the AGE. "And, we have not forgotten the heightened risk that this Delta variant poses for everyone at this time", Muir continued.

The GTA and venue (ICC Sydney) looked at alternative dates for the AGE however, largely due to its size, it was not possible to confirm dates for AGE to run in 2021. The 31st AGE will now run from 9 to 11 August 2022. 

Exhibitors are disappointed with the postponement. Despite the circumstances, many were still enthusiastic about showcasing their new products, services, and innovations. 

"We've seen significant initiatives from AGE exhibitors over the last eighteen months as they support businesses with technology and physical distancing measures, and we'll continue to connect buyers with sellers as our industry once again begins its road-to-recovery," said Muir.
