I’m sure by now you’ve heard about the current health crisis of coronavirus. The flu-like virus has been ravaging mainline China and begun to spread through Asia as well as popping up in America and Europe. The World Health Organization has classified it as a global emergency. Because of that, the 2020 Taipei Game Show has been pushed back.
The delay was announced via their official website, which you can read through here. The show is now the second largest organized event in Asia behind the Tokyo Game Show and takes place in the Taiwanese capital. The organizing community decided that due to the serious spread of the virus it was wise to kick the event’s date back to sometime in the summer. Taipei Game Show was originally set to run February 6th to the 9th.
Considering the amount of time, effort and money that goes into these conferences, it’s no joke to have to delay one. It goes to show how serious this outbreak has become, especially in Asia. We’ll keep you updated when more information becomes available.
