2020 SPIEL Canceled

To the disappointment yet relief of many, SPIEL announced that this year’s event, scheduled for October 22-25th, will be canceled due to concerns over Covid-19.

As stated on the SPIEL website:

Dear SPIELers,
With great regret we have to announce today that we have to postpone this year’s SPIEL, which was planned for 22nd to 25th of October 2020, to the date 14th to 17th of October 2021.
The health of our exhibitors, visitors, guests and employees is very important to us.
We have been observing the very dynamic national and international development regarding Covid-19 very closely over the last weeks and months and have explored all possibilities for the implementation of SPIEL ’20, also in coordination with the authorities. Unfortunately, this has led to the conclusion that due to force majeure, we will not be able to run SPIEL ’20 on the intended date, either factually or technically. After a long time of consideration we have come to the painful conclusion that SPIEL will have to be postponed by one year.
However, we are already looking ahead to SPIEL ’21 and can’t wait to welcome you next year again.
Until then, please stay safe and healthy.
Your SPIEL-Team

While it is sad to see yet another event cancel, it’s for the best that we remain safe in this trying time. Fans of the convention can look forward to its triumphant return in 2021.
