EGX confirmed for 17th – 20th September 2020
Today Gamer Network and ReedPOP are happy to announce that EGX, the UK-based consumer, trade and careers event for video games, will now take place 17-20 September 2020 at London’s Excel center.
The team behind EGX is exceptionally proud of its partner ExCeL London for its leading role in supporting the UK in its fight against the spread of COVID-19 and becoming the first NHS Nightingale hospital in the country.
We are working closely with ExCeL to ensure the health and safety of our fans, visitors and partners at EGX, providing a safe and exciting place to meet, discover and celebrate great games, and like all of you, we are following the circumstances at the venue very closely. Our number one priority continues to be the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff and as such, we will remain guided by the expert advice of the public health authorities.
David Lilley, Head of Events, UK, ReedPOP adds: “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. 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.”
Our sales and customer service teams will be on hand to answer any questions, and you can find us on social media where we will also be sharing any important updates.
We look forward to welcoming you to EGX 2020 in September. In the meantime, stay safe, stay inside and take care.
