From the Editor

15 May 2018

Welcome to G2E Asia! For the second year in a row, Inside Asian Gaming and the G2E Asia team have come togeth- er to bring you G2E  Asia Daily – a dai-ly show newspaper providing you with all the news, infor-mation, exhibitor info and important tips to keep you in-formed and enhance your experience here at G2E Asia.

On a person-al note, 2018 rep-resents my fifth year at G2E Asia and in that time I’ve seen it flourish to well and truly cement its sta-tus as Asia’s number one gaming industry trade show and con-ference. Likewise, it’s been a privilege to engage with so many key industry part-ners in putting G2E Asia Daily together. The sense of excite-ment and anticipa-tion surrounding this year’s show has been unmistakable.

G2E Asia 2018 also comes at a particu-larly exciting time for the Asian gaming industry, with Macau having welcomed the launch of its latest IR – MGM COTAI – only three months ago and Japan inch-ing ever closer to the long-awaited launch of its own casino in-dustry.

Exciting times indeed!

I hope you enjoy your week and please be sure to head down to the Inside Asian Gaming and G2E Asia Daily booth (Booth 660 to 665) this week to say hello!
