Now, we have more concrete details on the opening, thanks to Lionsgate's info for the Australian press (via Pedestrian.TV/Gizmodo AU) - the exhibition will open at Sydney's International Convention Centre on December 20 and run until February 4 - a much shorter stop compared to the two U.S. ones so far. And for those itching to get hands on tickets as soon as possible, tickets are going on sale on Ticketek on Tuesday, September 13!
The shorter stop here seems to suggest that other countries won't have to wait as long as we'd have initially thought - we're expecting the exhibition to move to somewhere in Asia next, before heading to Europe. Who knows, maybe we could get the exhibit in London in time with Robin de Levita's stage adaptation of the first book that is due later this year, fingers crossed.
UPDATE: see the official promo video of the Australian stop of the exhibition below, along with quotes sent out by Lionsgate to press:

“Through a series of interactive, never-before-seen content and immersive environments, guests connect to The Hunger Games in a one-of-kind experience,” says Jenefer Brown, Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Location Based Entertainment.Aussie tributes - let us know if you will be getting those tickets....
“Following massive success with audiences in New York and San Francisco, we’re thrilled the exhibition will now visit Australia where the franchise enjoys a strong fan base, as well as direct ties to the films. Liam Hemsworth is among several in the cast and crew who have Australian roots and we expect there will be a very warm reception for the exhibition.”
