Leading executives from the Asian gaming industry are among the confirmed panel speakers for G2E Asia 2015.
Confirmed attendees for Tuesday’s conference panels include Tom Arasi, president and chief operating officer of Bloomberry Resorts Corp, developer and operator of Solaire Resort and Casino in Manila. Mr Arasi was also the inaugural president and chief executive of Marina Bay Sands Pte Ltd, operator of Las Vegas Sands Corp’s Marina Bay Sands casino resort in Singapore.
Another notable attendee this year is Andrew MacDonald, senior vice president and chief casino officer for global gaming operations at Las Vegas Sands Corp.

Both Mr Arasi and Mr MacDonald will sit on Wednesday’s 12 noon to 1pm panel discussion ‘Asian Tourism: Gaming Leads the Way’.
A highlight of Wednesday afternoon on the conference floor is a panel discussion among arguably the ‘Big Three’ of the supply industry. Jamie Odell (CEO of Aristocrat Leisure Ltd), Walter Bugno (CEO for international markets at IGT Plc – firm created from the recent merger of International Game Technology and GTECH SpA) and Gavin Isaacs (CEO of Scientific Games Corp which in the past few years has acquired WMS Industries Inc and Bally Technology Inc) will all sit on a panel called ‘Supply Side Economics: How Games Drive Asian Markets’ moderated by Andrew Zarnett, managing director of Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.
