Even as Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia returns to its Macau homeground this July, the Singapore Special Edition convened last August amid the pandemic is being retained.
Slated to be held at Sands Expo and Convention Centre from May 30 to June 1, 2023, organiser RX will be differentiating between the two events. The Singapore Special Edition will be for gaming professionals to network and conduct business, and the content will focus on gaming.
Meanwhile, the Macau edition will comprise the newly-launched Asian IR Expo, alongside G2E Asia. The focus will be on integrated resorts, and tourism and entertainment products beyond gaming. It will be held at the Venetian Macao from July 11-13, 2023, and leaders and decision-makers from leading integrated resorts in Asia are expected to attend.
Outlining its strategy and plans to TTGmice, RX said that the Asian IR Expo will be an invaluable platform to drive business diversification, and obtain expert insights on Macau’s latest economic development.
“The running of the Singapore and Macau events could perfectly serve the needs of gaming and non-gaming sectors in Asia,” said an RX spokesperson. “The Singapore event in May falls nicely in the global ‘gaming event calendar’, and allows our customers to go back to their normal routine of attending major global gaming events.”
G2E Asia 2022 in Singapore drew almost 4,800 trade visitors. Among the 63 per cent from overseas, many were from Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.
One of the exhibitors, Interblock, told TTGmice that he was pleased with the quality of attendees. Its president, Michael Hu, said: “G2E Asia helped to drive our business further forward in the region – a valuable opportunity to show our strong array of games and full portfolio of electronic games and systems solutions.”
