UK’s premier trade show postponed once again
Meet the new year, same as the old. The organizers of Britain’s largest video game trade show, EGX, have announced that EGX Birmingham has been canceled. The show was set to make its grand return to the Birmingham NEC in March of this year, but has been postponed to 2023 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which contains to impact the UK in general and the global community as a whole.
“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the postponement of EGX Birmingham 2022,” begins a statement on the official EGX website. “Given the current climate and the knock-on effects of Omicron, many of our partners and brands are not yet ready to return to live events. At the end of the day, we felt that we wouldn’t have been able to put on the awesome show you expect from us without them.”
“Thank you for your support during this challenging time, and to everyone who had worked so hard to try and make EGX Birmingham 2022 happen. While we are sorry we won’t be able to see you in March, we’re excited for EGX London and have more details on the great things coming soon.”
Anybody who has purchased a ticket for the now-canceled EGX Birmingham 2022 event should expect to receive a full refund within the coming weeks. EGX London 2022 is currently scheduled to take place at London ExCel on the weekend of September 22-25. Here’s to hoping.
