Publish date: 15 November 2017
The first annual Asia Gaming Summit organized by Beacon Events was concluded with remarkable success on 10 November with over 200 industry practitioners, experts and affiliates gathered to explore Taiwan’s chances of becoming the next destination for land-based and online gaming businesses. Taiwan is a dynamic market filled with changes and new opportunities, including the Kinmen Island referendum, the blooming phenomenon of business process outsourcing, and the foreign investment online gaming service providers in Taiwan. The inaugural Asia Gaming Summit provided a comprehensive overview of the latest market trend.
The conference gathered leading gaming experts in the region. Panels were formed by experts from Taiwan and other parts of Asia to provide a comprehensive view in the region. The list of experts from Taiwan included Mooze Lee, Secretary General of WISBET, the first foreign-funded online gaming service provider in Taiwan; Steve Hsieh, Chairman of Taiwan Lottery; Calvin Shueh, an Asia Gaming expert; and Calvin Yang, Join Law Managing Partner. The conference also gathered experts outside Taiwan including Frank Schuengel, Product Director of Cryptocurrency Operator; Spencer Yang, Head of Asia of Unikrn; Michael Charlton, China GM of Ladbrokes Coral Group; and Bill Bryson, Senior Advisor of Global Market Advisors to share their insight into their corresponding area of expertise including eSports, sports betting, lottery, cyber security, cryptocurrency and affiliates.
As Taiwan said no to having a casino in the Kinmen Island, the conference also brought other countries in the region including Vietnam and Philippines into the spotlight, with sessions presented by Prof. Augustine Ha Ton Vihn, Chairman, Stellar Management Corporation; Basilio Rodriguez, President, North Cagayan Gaming and Amusement Corp. There was also a panel with Ayako Nakayama, Executive Director of Japan IR Association; Masahiro Terada, Senior Manager at PWC Consulting; and Tomohiro Takagi, Counsel at Nishimura & Asahi as panelists to explore the future role of Japan in the land-based gaming industry.
Gaming operators and affiliates also networked with the sponsors and exhibitors during the event, including BetConstruct, XPG, Taiwan Lottery Corp., Betradar and Limelight Networks.
With the success of Asia Gaming Summit, there are now more reasons to attend the next gaming event organised by Beacon Events – the 10th edition of iGaming Asia Congress (iGA) to be held on 13-15 March 2018 in Macau. iGA is the longest running dedicated C-level igaming event in Asia.
