The annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia trade show will be held in person this year, after a three-year pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The last onsite conference was held in Macau in 2019. This year’s event, referred to as the Asian IR Expo + G2E Asia 2023 on the G2E website, will be held July 11-13 at the Venetian Macao, a Las Vegas Sands property.
According to GGRAsia, organizers will also stage a pre-G2E event in Singapore at another LVS property, Marina Bay Sands. The so-called G2E Asia 2023 Special Edition: Singapore will run May 30-June 1.
The event is presented by the American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions. Prior to the recent hiatus, it had been staged annually in Macau from 2007 through 2019.
Organizers say the Singapore event will allow “gaming professionals to network and conduct business, and the content will be focus on gaming.” The subsequent Macau gathering will focus on “integrated resorts with the profile extended beyond gaming.
“This will be an invaluable platform to drive business diversification and get expert insights on Macau’s latest economic development,” added the announcement.
The statement said that running events in Singapore and Macau “could perfectly serve the needs of gaming and non-gaming sectors in Asia.”
The Singapore event “falls nicely in the global gaming event calendar, and allows our customers to go back to their normal routine of attending at all the major global gaming events,” it said.
And the July event will “bring tourism and entertainment products beyond gaming, to Macau and support business diversification.”
