New dates and a venue for EGX Rezzed, which was set for 26th-28th March at Tobacco Dock in London, will be announced in due course, ReedPop said.

"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," ReedPop said in a statement.

"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."

Tickets are valid for the new Rezzed dates, ReedPop added. If you can't make the new dates when they're announced, contact customer services at egx.helpline@reedexpo.co.uk.

"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," ReedPop continued.

"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."

Meanwhile, EGX sister show MCM Birmingham, which was due to take place 21st-22nd March, is postponed to June 27th-28th and will remain at the NEC in Birmingham.
