The Board of Course Directors and Advisors have been closely monitoring the current health crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although case numbers are decreasing in some countries, others are in the middle of devastating crisis with increasing patients. Travel restrictions are still in place in many countries. The situation remains uncertain and it is difficult to foresee how the situation will evolve over the next months.

As a result, and our highest priority to protect the health of GEST faculty, delegates, staffs, suppliers, and exhibitors, the Board has decided that postponing the meeting was the only responsible course of action. The next GEST Asia will be held in Tokyo, in November 2021. Once confirmed, new dates will be posted to the website
