The G2E Asia 2016 opening ceremony featured a gathering of dignitaries from local government and business organisations as well as the international gaming industry. The ribbon-cutting, which included a traditional Chinese ‘eye-dotting’ ceremony, opened the doors for more than 10,500 visitors and 180 exhibitors.
Hu Wei, president of Reed Exhibitions Greater China, said: “G2E Asia has been the leading trade event for the gaming and entertainment industry in Asia thanks to the strong support from the Macau government, along with our partners and participants.
“The Asian gaming industry is currently going through a transformation that is presenting numerous exciting opportunities. G2E Asia is, therefore, the perfect place for industry professionals to find new business opportunities, network and exchange views.”
Josephine Lee, executive vice president of Reed Exhibitions Greater China, added: “The 10th edition of G2E Asia has achieved new milestone and set new records in many aspects including the number of visitors, delegates and VIP buyers, which truly reflects G2E Asia as the industry event for forward-looking casino operators and suppliers in Asia.
“We will continue to innovate with initiatives to enhance the attendees’ experience by engaging and working closely with the industry, government and industry associations.”
G2E Asia will be returning next year from May 16-18 at the Venetian Macao.
