G2E Asia and Inside Asian Gaming have taken the wraps off their list of speakers for its upcoming GAME/G2E Asia Online Conference. The conference is scheduled to get underway on July 7th from 16:00 to 17:30 (Macau time).
This year’s theme, dubbed “Roadmap to Growth” will focus on innovation in the casino space. Tuesday’s event will feature Frederic Winckler as its keynote speaker. Winckler is the EVP, Chief Creative and Brand Officer for Melco Resorts & Entertainment.
Winckler is also slated to appear on a panel discussion, alongside a who’s who from the gaming industry. Featured panelists include IGT Asia’s Sales Director Michael Cheers and Jumbo Technology’s Associate Vice President of Business Development Allen Hsu. Additional speakers are to be announced as we get closer to the conference.
This is the first G2E Asia Online Conference. It emerged in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to connect G2E Isa’s customer base with casino operators and entertainment decision makers across Asia.
G2E Asia, a land-based conference, was originally scheduled for July, but was postponed until December 2020 due to the pandemic. In a statement made on April 17th, G2E noted the following:
“Dear Exhibitors, Partners, and Visitors: Your health and safety is always our highest priority. Based on our continued monitoring of the global health crisis, and in consultation with our customers and the Macao government, we will now host G2E Asia in December. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and continued travel and commercial restrictions, it is not possible to hold G2E Asia in July as originally planned. G2E Asia, and its organizers the American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions, are grateful for your continued support and apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. We will continue to monitor the situation and remain in close contact with all G2E Asia stakeholders, local government, and health authorities over the coming months.”
