Clarion postpones physical editions of BgC and SPAC to 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic

Clarion Events, organizer of the Brazilian Gaming Congress (BgC) and the São Paulo Affiliate Conference (SPAC), informed that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts, the physical edition of both events, which would take place from December 6th to 8th in São Paulo, will be postponed to 2021. “We thank everyone for their understanding and we are working to provide opportunities for interaction and content in 2020,” said Sergio Jardim, General Director of Clarion Events Brazil.

The event, which has been debating the regulation of the gambling market in Brazil since 2013, should take place at the Hotel Tivoli Mofarrej, in São Paulo. In the same place, but the day before (Sunday 6), it was scheduled the second edition of the São Paulo Affiliate Conference (SPAC), focused on affiliate marketing for the gaming industry.

Despite the impossibility of holding events in their traditional model at this time, Clarion is working to provide opportunities for interaction and content in 2020.

In an official statement, the company that organized the only event in the country that gathers national and international players and more than 400 professionals and industry officials, thanks for the understanding and informs that very soon it will announce more news.

“We have been working hard to get to this event in the best possible way as every year. But this pandemic is still not controlled, and we believe that it is best not to risk anyone's health. Even the logistics part, of local and international transfers, was also going to bring problems and what we least want is to complicate companies and guests with possible flight suspensions and such issues,” explains Jardim to  Games Magazine Brasil.

The BgC gathers sector authorities, among exhibitors, speakers and congressmen, operators, suppliers, regulators, legislators, associations and specialized media. The last edition brought together more than 400 participants together with 22 exhibiting / sponsoring brands, together with 10 lectures and 38 specialists.
