The Global Gaming Expo, known in the industry as G2E has announced its nominees for the Asian awards, Casino Aus reports.
There are five nominees in each of the 12 categories and voting closes on May 18.
The winners will be announced at a gala dinner to be held on May 21 at the Parisian Macao.
Many of the G2E Asia award nominees are located in Asia, with the entire Asia-Pacific eligible for honours, including Australia.
G2E debuted in 2001 wit its inaugural gaming trade show in Las Vegas, with the first G2E Asia in 2007.
This year’s conference will include three days of gaming-focused conferences and shows from hundreds of exhibitors from May 21 to 23.
The G2E Asia Awards gala dinner is on the first night of the event and celebrating its 13th year.
The purpose of the awards is to recognise excellence and innovation in Asian gaming.
It also seeks to recognise the contributions of non-gaming entities to the industry as a whole.
G2E Asia partnered with Inside Asian Gaming to organise the 2019 event.
Some of the key sponsors for the event include Aristocrat, SG Gaming and Wynn Resorts.
The award nominees are chosen from public nominations by a group of 50 members of the judging panel.
It includes a list of industry heavyweights such as head of eGaming with the Isle of Man government Tony Ure, American Chamber of Commerce in Macau chairman Paul Tse and Macau European Chamber of Commerce Board President Professor Kevin Thompson among others.
