Online and land-based gambling operators are continuously looking for new opportunities, particularly in Asia. And with Macau working hard to become the tourism and leisure destination, the field is now open for other neighboring countries to play their cards right for a slice of the gaming pie.
Taiwan is among the countries vying to become the next Asian destination for gambling. On Oct. 28, the Taiwanese outlying island of Kinmen is scheduled to hold a referendum on gambling, in which its residents will decide whether they want a casino to be built in Kinmen.
Then, industry players, experts and affiliates will be visiting the country for a brand new conference that will assess Taiwan’s chances of becoming the next destination for land-based and online gambling businesses.
The inaugural Asia Gaming Summit – Taiwan will be held from Nov. 8-10 at W Taipei and promises to take a look at the current state of things as well as the future opportunities for the casino industry in Taiwan.
One of the top speakers at the three-day event is former operator and Taiwan iGaming expert Calvin Shueh who will explain why operators should consider the Taiwan for business. Also speaking at the Asia Gaming Summit – Taiwan are John Lee, executive chairman for Asia of ESL Gaming; Scott Burton, CEO of eSportsPools; Prof. Day-Yang Liu, an expert for both land-based and online gambling from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology; and Dov Allin, CEO of affiliate company Marketing Across Media Asia.
Meanwhile, Global Market Advisors senior advisor Bill Bryson will delve into the past as well as discuss the present Taiwanese gaming market. Bryson will also pinpoint opportunities for the future of the Asian country as a gambling destination and will examine the pros and cons of such opportunities for different industry players.
