SPiCE India 2020 postpones due to Coronavirus

by Team Gutshot Posted on 12 Mar, 2020

The Coronavirus outbreak has been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). The cases outside China has increase 13-fold in just two weeks. This has certainly become an alarming situation with more than 4,000 deaths and 118,000 cases so far. There has been constant warning regarding the travel across countries, the government has been taking necessary steps for their respective nations to curb the deadly virus from spreading.

COVID-19 has left a tremendous impact on the business, sports, conferences and what not! Travelling has been restricted; trade shows have been cut back. The initial few months of 2020 was dedicated to various live poker tours around the world which have been cancelled or postponed. Recently, the Federation of Indian Fantasy Sports (FIFS), a body for fantasy sports postponed its GamePlan 2020 which was scheduled on 5 March 2020.

Amidst the novel coronavirus, a couple of days ago, the Strategic Platform for iGaming Conference and Exhibition (SPiCE) India 2020, to be held at the Goa Marriot Resort and Spa from 25 to 27 March 2020 announced that the Eventus International is monitoring the entire situation and “SPiCE India 2020 is on track as per schedule.”

The latest update comes after the Indian government issued a travel advisory cancelling all existing visas for foreign nationals other than diplomatic and employment visas until 15 April 2020 to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

SPiCE 2020 was supposed to welcome 40 providers and over 600 attendees through the 12 networking sessions. The entire agenda was to maximize the growth, potential, and networking, further exploring the innovations and advances in the field. The 2020 event was supposed to host a pre and post-event party, a gala award ceremony and poker events for the attendees. The occasion invited 40+ speakers including Satya Mahapatra, Strategy Consultant – Growth & Revenue Optimisation; Yashashvi Takallapalli, CEO, Nostragamus; Aditya Wadhwani, Professional eSports Commentator; Amin Rozani, CEO, Spartan Poker; Ankush Gera, CEO, Junglee Games; Mike Bolsover, CEO, Silver Heritage Group and so on.

The organizer said, “We are, at this time, left with no choice but to postpone SPiCE India 2020, which will be rescheduled. New dates will be announced shortly after discussions with our stakeholders and advisors.”

However, Jay Satya mentioned earlier that, “No one has been tested positive for COVID-19 in Goa to date and the situation appears to be normal. The government has however advised that everyone remains careful about their health and follows basic norms of hygiene at all times.” The postponement of the event follows similar rescheduling of other gaming industry events across Asia, including ASEAN in Manila and G2E Asia in Macau. The company will host SPiCE at a later date in 2020.
