Being an ex-possession of the Australasian Gaming Machine Manufacturers Association (AGMMA), being at the time comprised of the largest casino gaming equipment trade exhibition in the Asian region, the Asian Gaming Expo after the acquisition (June 13 -14) will soon get the name G2E Asia. It is believed to be unique within the growing gaming market in Asia.
G2E (Global Gaming Expo is the international gaming trade show and conference “by the industry and for the industry”. Organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions, G2E made its debut in 2001, defining itself as the pre-eminent show for the gaming-entertainment industry) has always been popular what is proved by the fact that the last year’s annual conference in Las Vegas attracted more than 26,000 people (there were more than 4,600 foreign participants among them). With the help of G2E Asia, G2E expects to expand its influence and interests in the gaming world.
Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., president and CEO of the AGA, says: “With Singapore’s decision last year to legalize casinos and Macau’s gaming operations flourishing, Asian gaming markets are playing a larger role in the global gaming landscape. As the leading resource for the worldwide gaming industry, G2E is creating G2E Asia to highlight the remarkable growth in the Asian gaming markets and bring the unbeatable quality and value of the G2E experience to an even larger audience”.
The debut of G2E Asia is expected to take place in June, 12 -13, 2007 at the Macau Tower. The 2008 event will be run at the Venetian Macao which is a new mega-resort property planned to be open next year.
