The organizers of the Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) have made the “unavoidable decision” to postpone the event for the second year in a row, due to rising number of Covid-19 infections in New South Wales, Australia.
The next edition of AGE will now run from August 9 to August 11, 2022, stated a Wednesday announcement.
AGE is promoted by the Gaming Technologies Association, and includes some of the leading global brands of casino equipment suppliers. The event, which was scheduled to run from August 10 to August 12 this year, was due to be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
In a statement, promoters said the decision to postpone the event took into consideration the fact that the New South Wales lockdown was “extended with no end date in sight.”
Chris Muir, CEO of the Gaming Technologies Association, said, “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.”
