Asia Gaming Summit 2019 bears an increasingly vital look due to current events.
The third edition of AGS takes place from 5-7 November in Taipei Taiwan at the Taipei W.
The Summit is set to explore regional regulatory updates, innovation in payment and technology, and best practices for setting up operations and office in Taiwan.
AGS attendees will hear about the latest trends in the market through insights from leading regional gaming experts while meeting and networking with professional stakeholders ranging from online and land-based operators to government officials to game providers to payment companies and more.
Some AGS Speakers
Industry leaders confirmed for attendance include Lin and Partners MD George Lin; Principal Consultant for 1710 Gaming Christina Thankor-Rankin; Sportradar Managing Director Michael Maerz; Bitwork Co-founder Bryan Wu; Join Law Managing Partner Calvin Yang, with the full list of many more available at the AGS official website.
What is Really Happening in Asia?
Beyond the additional networking functions and opportunities; in-depth industry round-tables; networking cocktail reception; poker tournament; and other unique mixers, the star topic of the conference has to be the current Asia gaming landscape.
China Pressures Neighbours
A new push from kingpin China to shutter gambling in neighbouring countries has overflowed into Cambodia, where the regulated online gambling industry has been shut down by the Cambodian government and Prime Minister Hun Sen announced a ban all new online gambling licenses in the country; and into the Philippines, where new Pogo licenses have been suspended by the government despite the disagreement of President Duterte.
AGS to Make Sense
AGS is set to make sense of developments, and give regional stakeholders an accurate picture of how they can continue to expand in the region, within a stable market.
E-Sports Forum Co-Occurring
The event will be further enhanced by the co-location of the Asia e-sports Forum; offering game developers, e-sports leagues, traditional sports leagues, broadcast distributors, brands and advertiser, technology companies, marketing agencies, gaming consultants, and casino operators the opportunity to monetize their complementary skills and products.
With still ample time to arrange the trip, turning the uncertainty in Asia into a practical strategy for a highly liquid region is an opportunity that cannot be undervalued nor overlooked at upcoming AGS 2019.
