Melco Resorts & Entertainment Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho has been voted the industry identity that members of Inside Asian Gaming’s GAME community want to hear from most at upcoming GAME events.
Ho attracted 61 of 288 votes cast as part of the community-based speaker selection process announced by IAG last week, just ahead of his sister and SJM Holdings Chairman Daisy Ho with 53 votes and Las Vegas Sands SVP and Chief Casino Officer Andrew MacDonald with 50 votes.
GAME’s community-based speaker selection process is designed to allow the platform’s 435 members to nominate who they would like to see speak at upcoming GAME events.

The 10 speakers in most demand are as follows:
Inside Asian Gaming will now approach the speakers with the most votes and invite them to speak at an upcoming GAME event, with details to be announced shortly.
