Expo Enriches Focus to Drive Macao Government Initiative Forward

Not only will G2E Asia 2017 be a larger show in terms of size, the content will be much richer too. With the surge in non-gaming spending, the Integrated Resorts Experience (IRE) is a timely new addition to the booming event and an excellent way to diversify revenue streams for Macao. According to Praveen Choudhary, Managing Director of Head of HK Property, HK/China Conglomerates and Asia Gaming Research of Morgan Stanley in the press conference, the IRE helps integrated resorts and casino operators stay ahead of the curve and keep a finger on the pulse of the market, as customers seek the ultimate experience beyond the casino floor. The IRE is also the first-ever event at G2E Asia to centralize sourcing of new products, technologies, and services that drive revenue and value from non-gaming sources across Entertainment, Clubs, Bars, IR Technology and Business Solutions.

With this stronger focus on non-gaming, G2E Asia is answering the Macao government’s call to attract a market beyond pure gaming and to develop its MICE businesses, as well as other non-gaming attractions.
