The G2E Asia 2017 Conference has detailed its agenda and is set to provide an overview of the Asian Gaming Landscape with insights into critical topics.


G2E claims it has lined up an influential list of industry speakers to address attendees at this year’s Global Gaming Expo Asia (G2E Asia), the marketplace for the Asian gaming industry.

Francis Lui, Deputy Chairman of the Galaxy Entertainment Group, will provide opening remarks at 09:30 on May 16. The conference program includes other industry experts who will address:

  • Status and projections for the Asian market;
  • Integrated Resort products and technology solutions;
  • iGaming; and
  • Best practices to mitigate the risk of fraud and other security threats in the gaming sphere.

G2E Asia’s conference will be held May 16 to 18 at the Venetian Macao in conjunction with the exhibition and its organisers have stated it intends to foster learning, present emerging opportunities and highlight the latest global industry trends.

Strong Regional Focus: Asian Markets

The key developments emerging in today’s Southeast Asian gaming markets, including a thriving gaming landscape in Macau, Singapore and Japan and more, will be closely examined during the conference. Also discussed, will be the industry’s opportunities in emerging markets like Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam, making them prime territories for future innovations.

The Asian Markets Forum will offer a thorough assessment of topical issues affecting gaming in Asia today, specifically Macau, Singapore, Japan, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam. PricewaterhouseCoopers will address Japan in greater detail, explaining why it has been earmarked by industry experts as potentially one of the largest gaming markets in the world, with the potential to generate tens of billions of dollars in revenue, with significant attribution to the development of the “Osaka Strip.”

Integrated Resort Product and Technology Solutions

With an eye towards the future of gaming, the most ambitious businesses know that a broad offering of hospitality and entertainment amenities will drive revenue beyond the casino floor. With a government directive to create integrated resorts, the conference will highlight developments that answer the call to drive tourism and boost revenue.

The American Gaming Association will lead a new Executive Roundtable on Content and Amenities for the Mass Market from 09:30 to 10:45 on May 17. The roundtable will feature:

  • Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd;

Critical Topics and Trends: iGaming Summit and IAGA Best Practices Institute
