Asia Gaming Brief Managing Director Luis Pereira noted that “this year has been ASEAN Gaming Summit’s biggest-ever edition, demonstrating just how much the gaming industry has emerged stronger and more vibrantly from the limitations caused by the pandemic. I would like to give particular thanks to the team for putting together such a great event. We’re very excited to have debuted our new format, further improving on last year’s edition and paving the way for even better iterations in the future,” he noted.

“None of this would be possible without such great support from the industry and – in particular – from PAGCOR – our sincere thanks. Additional thanks to the regional operators for coming out to the event and sharing their experiences with all of us here. Of course, the stellar insights from our speakers were an essential part of this year’s event – and I would like to extend our gratitude to each one of our panelists, moderators and presenters for sharing not only their time, but their invaluable experience. We look forward to hearing all of your feedback and making the next edition even better!” thanked Pereira.
