We were able to meet with numerous potential buyers and networked with both current and future business partners. Where else would we get the chance to chat face-to-face with fellow industry professionals of all levels, while finding new industry-relevant business opportunities?”
“G2E Asia has always been a significant event for launching our products in Asia, and this year was no exception. We were very impressed with this year’s event, and admittedly, a bit overwhelmed with the exceptional number of attendees that visited our booth,” said Mr. Ken Jolly, Vice President & Managing Director Asia, SG Gaming.
“Our twelve-year success in Macau demonstrates the extent to which ambitious businesses in the world of global gaming and entertainment trust G2E Asia to help them connect to new opportunities, explore fresh innovations, and conduct peer-to-peer exchange. The show continues to evolve, according to the changing rhythms of the industry, which is why it remains so relevant, and why the gaming and entertainment industry, throughout Asia, trusts G2E Asia as the right exhibition platform via which to drive business forward,” said Josephine Lee, Chief Operating Officer of Reed Exhibitions Greater China.
