BRISBANE, Qld., Australia — The Australasian Hospitality and Gaming Expo (MAX AHG Expo) scheduled for March 18-19, 2020, has been cancelled on the back of Federal and State Government recommendations today around the containment of coronavirus in our country.

In an unprecedented move following yesterday’s COAG meeting, the AHG Expo board has decided to cancel the Expo and all associated Expo-week events, including the Club Managers’ Association Australia’s AGM, the 2020 National Governance and Management Congress, the Club Plus Super AHG Breakfast and AHG Expo’s organised bus tours.

MAX AHG Expo Event Manager Amy Coady said the cancellations were a precautionary measure in the interests of public safety.

Our Prime Minister has this afternoon made a recommendation against non-essential organised gatherings of 500 people or more from Monday onwards, which has seen our board make the very hard decision to cancel next week’s planned events,” Ms Coady said.

The AHG Expo board is working through any questions arising from our exhibitors, event ticket holders and registered visitors around the cancellations and more information will be released as appropriate.

We encourage you to keep an eye on the MAX AHG Expo website and social media platforms in this respect.
