Taipei Game Show postponed over Coronavirus

The Taipei Game Show has been postponed because of the Coronavirus, organisers have advised (via VG24/7).

“We are deeply sorry to announce the different decision from our committee,” a spokesperson told the outlet. “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.”

A new time and date have yet to be finalised, though it will still take place at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre.

Organisers of the Taipei Game Show continued on to say that “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 exhibitors’ 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.”
