The organizers of EGX 2020 have confirmed their plans to run the event from September 17-20 at London’s Excel center when they hope that the spread of the coronavirus will have been reduced enough to allow such a large gathering to take place.
“We are doing the best we can during this unprecedented time, looking to the future with hope while we work now with diligence, constantly monitoring the situation and following guidance from the UK government,” says David Lilley, head of events for ReedPOP. “This is clearly a situation that will keep evolving and whilst we might not have all the answers right now, we will do all we can to keep everyone informed and updated when we do. In the meantime, we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our exhibitors and partners who continue to be incredibly supportive of EGX during these challenging times.”
The EGX organizers also stated that they are working closely with ExCeL London in order to “ensure the health and safety of our fans, visitors, and partners at EGX.” They are clearly focused on ensuring this event will not put people in danger and at least seem to leave a window open for the idea that this show could still end up being delayed.
For what it’s worth, EGX Rezzed 2020 is currently still scheduled to run during July, which certainly appears to be a slightly more optimistic date given current events.
