The American Gaming Association and show organizer Reed Exhibitions have announced that their upcoming Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia 2018 extravaganza in Macau is due to feature the inaugural edition of the Asia Lottery Expo & Forum.

The pair declared that the multi-faceted Asia Lottery Expo & Forum is due to be held at The Venetian Macao from May 15 to 17 and has been designed to ‘deliver a business, learning and networking platform exclusively designed for lottery professionals’ while also providing visitors from across the region with a chance to meet and explore ‘collaboration prospects with fellow lottery operators in Asia’.

Reed Exhibitions and the American Gaming Association explained that they decided to debut the three-day Asia Lottery Expo & Forum following the success of this year’s Asia Lottery Forum and 7th China Lottery Industry Salon, which attracted some 7,000 visitors. They stated that their upcoming event is to give ‘technology and solution providers’ a stage to exhibit ‘their current and upcoming game designs, platforms, systems, capabilities and innovations’.

The organizers detailed that the Asia Lottery Expo & Forum 2018 is additionally set to feature a trio of seminars conducted by the China Lottery Industry Salon Experts Committee in partnership with some of the industry’s most prominent players. These discussions are to investigate topics as diverse as market trends and dynamics alongside the challenges and opportunities facing the sector in the era of big data while the whole affair is due to end with a first-of-its-kind networking session.

“It will offer a unique and unrivaled opportunity for professionals to meet the Asia-Pacific’s fast-growing lottery industry,” read a statement from the American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions.
