PAGE Turns to 2021 To Deliver a Revolutionary Follow-Up in ManilaPublished May 14, 2020 by Lee R
PAGE 2020 has been delayed, to the advantage of all stakeholders and the conference developers.
Manila's big event, PAGE 2020, has been postponed.
The Phil-Asian Gaming Expo (PAGE) at Manila’s SMX Convention Centre and World Trade Center will go on, with revised dates pushed back to 7 to 9 January 2021.
PAGE announced the changes to its highly anticipated signature event under the greater priority of
“the health and safety of our visitors and exhibitors first and foremost.”
Lack of Access
The decision came as a result of consultation with customers and local authorities in the Philippines, with the restrictions to international travel being the deciding condition.
As for the pushback, PAGE assures close monitoring of the Coronavirus while maintaining communication with the event's array of stakeholders to ensure the event will be “safe to conduct.”
Last Year's Splash In
PAGE was just gathering momentum after launching last year, as a comprehensive trade show and conference for online and land-based Asian gaming industries.
The inaugural PAGE 2019 attracted 46,000 attendees over three days from all over the world, including some 500 VIPs and targeted buyers.
The conference seeks to provide a one-stop solution for learning, establishing new connections and
unveiling the latest products and solutions for individuals and businesses that the region has to offer.
The conference format offers a trade show, conference streams, and business social networking events among the array of development activities supporting companies across the full gaming supply chain in making new connections; introducing new business and trending products; and providing solutions to drive business opportunities.
The Second Edition
The postponed second round will evolve into a “unique social platform for industry professionals” according to event organizers, featuring over 1,000 entertainment games, solutions and peripheral products in exhibition “not to be missed.”
Sounds like the delay is going to be worth the wait for PAGE 2020. In an emerging economic region, it is encouraging to see quality being preserved while effective adaptation is implemented by the Philippines central gaming event.
