G2E Asia visits the Philippines for the first time with Asia’s newest trade exhibition taking place at Manila Marriott Hotel, Resorts World Manila, on 3 and 4 December 2019.
Twelve years after G2E Asia made its debut in Macau, Asia’s biggest annual gaming industry trade show is spreading its wings to Manila.
G2E Asia @ the Philippines, organized by the American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions, will be held for the very first time on 3 and 4 December 2019 with a focus on emerging ASEAN markets.
To be hosted at Marriott Hotel Manila, it is expected to attract around 3,500 visitors representing an extensive array of gaming industry segments including gaming platforms, software and systems, land-based and online casino/gaming operators, sports betting, integrated resorts and hotels, gaming affiliates and regulators. Blockchain, cybersecurity and FinTech solutions will also be addressed.
Inside Asian Gaming has been named Lead Media Partner of G2E Asia @ the Philippines and will have a strong presence on the exhibition floor.
“We’re excited to expand the G2E Asia brand with this new expo in the Philippines, bringing new opportunities for growth and innovation to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) emerging markets, including the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia,” said Josephine Lee, chief operating officer of Reed Exhibitions Greater China.
G2E Asia Philippines will feature both an exhibition component with around 50 exhibitors and a conference examining latest developments within the Philippines and across the broader ASEAN gaming market. Conference highlights include a keynote address from Philippines gaming regulator PAGCOR, a Q&A with Resorts World Manila’s Chief Gaming Officer Hakan Dagtas and a discussion on payment solutions with Caesars Entertainment SVP of AML Compliance, Benjamin Floyd.
Organizers have also announced the inaugural G2E Asia @ the Philippines Product Awards and Gala Dinner on the evening of Tuesday 3 December, aimed at recognizing excellence and the most popular products in gaming and entertainment among the exhibits.
G2E Asia @ the Philippines is supported by PAGCOR with Andrea Domingo, Chairman and CEO of the regulator, stating the event “will put the Philippines on the radar of international gaming. The advantage for PAGCOR is that it is able to share its experience and policies on responsible gaming, proper accountability, regulation as well as operating our own casinos but also showing the world how transparent we are as a regulator and how good we are as an operator of casinos,” Domingo said.
“PAGCOR continues to pursue its vision of becoming the top gaming destination in this part of the world. Having events such as G2E Asia reflects the region’s exciting and upward growth in gaming and entertainment.”
