Overview of the online gaming landscape

The online gaming industry in Asia has been in a state of uncertainty over the past few months, and not without good reason. The regulated online gambling industry has been shut down by the Cambodian government and Prime Minister, Hun Sen, announced recently to ban all new online gambling licenses in the country. Furthermore, new POGO licenses have been suspended in the Philippines. These recent developments have contributed to the uncertainty of Asia’s online gambling.
Regional stakeholders are trying to understand how the industry will develop from here and are looking for a more stable environment with opportunities for growth.

Co-located Event – Asia Esports Forum

This year, the Asia Gaming Summit will be held at W Taipei hotel together with Asia eSports Forum under the same roof again. Asia Esports Forum 2019 is a platform for game developers, esports leagues, traditional sports leagues, broadcast distributors, brands and advertiser, technology companies, marketing agencies, gaming consultants, casino operators, etc. It will offer the forum to learn and monetize on the opportunities that this booming industry has to offer.
