Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia, the marketplace for the Asian gaming and entertainment industry, at The Venetian Macao, is preparing for a successful closing day.

The event’s Opening Ceremony saw top-tier representatives from business, government and the diplomatic community, and the show has continued with its busy programme as it heads into its closing day.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, chairman and CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited, officially inaugurated the event with his keynote address, “Success Beyond Gaming”, where he shared his unique experiences and shed light on his company’s distinctive and pioneering beyond-gaming approach.

Programs have included the Asian Markets Forum, with two panels dedicated to Asia North and Asia South respectively. The forum was comprised of a panel of renowned industry leaders, namely: William Shen, senior vice president & managing director, Korea & Japan of Caesars Entertainment Corp; Eric Landheer, executive director of Summit Ascent Holdings; and Alidad Tash, senior vice president of Gaming & Strategy, 2NT8 Limited.

“This year’s 12th edition is our largest to date with a show floor that is 37,000 square meters and a globally renowned showcase of more than 220 exhibitors and their most cutting-edge products, services and technologies,” said Josephine Lee, chief operating officer of Reed Exhibitions Greater China.

“Much like the industry it serves – including this year’s 15,000 local and international trade visitors, G2E Asia owes its growth and success to its dedication to non-stop change and innovation. Each year, the event’s many roles, together with its new and returning state-of-the-art offerings, merge to deliver a better, more connected and more professional G2E Asia, ultimately making it a ‘must-attend’ event for the gaming-entertainment industry in Asia and abroad,” she added.

G2E Asia 2018 runs from May 15 to 17, 2018 at The Venetian Macao. To learn more about G2E Asia 2018, visit
