As G2E Asia steps firmly into its second decade, being recognized for our contributions to Macau and the industry is quite an inspiration to all of us. We are extremely grateful to MCEA. This honor will serve as a driving force to ensure that our teams deliver even better and more professional editions that will fully meet the needs and exceed the expectations of the industry.”
