G2E Asia 2017 is on track to break all attendance records this year, attracting more than 12,000 visitors for the first time.
Figures collated on the eve of G2E Asia showed 400 online and offline business meetings already arranged via the expo’s meeting request platforms, with 1,000 international buyers from 90 different countries and regions registered.
Of the 180 exhibitors taking part, nearly one-third are participating for the first time while 45% of the 70-plus online gaming companies taking part are also new to G2E Asia.
“Our goal is to create the most comprehensive experience possible with conference and in-show features that complement the expo, which truly serves as the marketplace for the Asian gaming industry,” said Josephine Lee, chief operating officer of Reed Exhibitions Greater China.
“With interactive educational and networking opportunities, attendees will receive added benefits and opportunities to learn from colleagues and experts within the fast-growing Asian gaming industry.”
Among the new features at G2E Asia 2017 are the Parts & Components Pavilion which will highlight the most advanced parts and components in the industry and involve 100 R&D engineers, product designers, buyers and technical designers. This group of electronic gaming machine manufacturers helps Asian market operators source unique and innovative parts, components and features that appeal to Asian gaming customers.
There is also a brand new networking event called “Future Technology Leaders’ Get-Together” where over 120 technology executives from Integrated Resorts, gaming suppliers and government can exchange ideas and discuss the application of innovative solutions for better customer engagement.
