With just two weeks to go, EGX Rezzed has announced that it too will be postponing its event due to the ongoing Coronavirus concerns.
New dates and venue for EGX Rezzed will be announced in due course, but it is expected to be moved to this summer in London.
In a statement released this morning, the organisers ReedPop say:
“Having monitored the situation around COVID-19 constantly over these last few weeks and following many hours of conversation internally and with our partners, we have taken the incredibly difficult decision to move EGX: Rezzed to Summer 2020 with date and announcement forthcoming,”
“We did everything that we could to try to run the event as planned, but ultimately, maintaining social distancing is neither feasible at, nor in the spirit of, the interactive and community nature of Rezzed. It is the community that makes Rezzed so special and it is our duty to make sure that your safety comes first.”
People who purchased tickets will be relieved to know that they will be valid for the new Rezzed dates. However, if you can’t make the new dates when they’re announced, contact customer services at email@example.com who will assist.
“Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the COVID-19 virus in what is an incredibly challenging time, and we remain determined to run EGX: Rezzed in 2020 for everyone who has looked forward to and wants to attend the show. Thank you for all the messages we have received over these last few weeks, this feedback has been invaluable in helping us determine these next steps. Stay tuned to our website and social channels for the latest information about when three days of indie gaming fun at EGX: Rezzed will take place.”
