Global Gaming Expo Asia (G2E Asia) will be held May 16-18 at the Venetian Macao. The premiere event is co-organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions. Last year’s event enjoyed tremendous support from the government, regulatory authorities, operators and associations. This year promises to present an even stronger opportunity for networking, knowledge building and learning.
Expect new records to be broken this year with a 25% increase in show floor space to 28,000sqm (over 300,000 sq ft). Look for over 180 exhibitors with nearly a third of them presenting at the show for the first time. Over 70 companies will be on hand to demonstrate online gaming solutions and nearly half of those companies are new.
The new Integrated Resort Experience (IRE) will feature more than a dozen companies who will showcase IR tech and business solutions including hospitality integration, big data analytics and CRM, security systems, and more. Although still firmly focused on Macau, the 2017 event will feature the IRE at the core of the event, in a nod to the government’s desire to see the SAR marketed to more than gamblers. Day two of the G2E Asia 2017 Conference will also spotlight on “Integrated Resort Operations
Along with non-gaming attractions for families and small groups, Macau is also focused on developing MICE solutions and some of the conferences will be looking at how Las Vegas has accomplished that and made non-gaming the dominant revenue generator thereby attracting a much wider demographic than the city had previously.
For the first time ever, G2E Asia will offer a centralized source for new products, technologies and services related to non-gaming assets and development such as entertainment, clubs, and bars, as well as business solutions and IR technology. delegates can use this information to satisfy customers who are looking for the ultimate experience away from the casino floor.
Key casino operators, CIOs, IT leaders and Heads of Operations have been consulted heavily over the last year in order for the G2E Asia show team to lay the groundwork for an expo based on market needs. Strong market research has gone into pinpointing specific purchasing requirements and visitors’ budgets.
In IR tech, Hong Kong-based Regal Crown Technology will present comprehensive system integration solutions allowing customers to use convenient and secure payment platforms. Arbor Networks will also be onsite with system defense solutions including the Arbor Cloud for multi-layered DDoS Protection.
Oracle will launch Oracle Hospitality at G2E Asia 2017. The new business unit will help hospitality providers hasten the move into the digital economy and stay competitive in the face of disruptive technologies such as social, mobile, cloud and big data.
Roundtables and presentations on major industry issues will be augmented by the “Future Technology Leaders Get-Together” Networking Event where over 100 future technology leaders from IRs, suppliers, and governments will get together, exchange information and ideas, and inspire with discussions on the application of innovative tech solutions designed to drive customer engagement and enhance efficiencies.
Global Gaming Expo G2E Asia is the marketplace for the Asian Gaming Industry and will run from May 16 to May 18, 2017. For more details on the show, visit www.g2easia.com.
