Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited was recognized for its dedication towards contributing to social causes at the 2019 Global Gaming Expo Asia Awards. The G2E Asia Awards 2019 recognizes companies that have made an exemplary contribution across a range of verticals, including demonstrating social responsibility to the local community.
The selection of the winners is made after a rigorous evaluation process by a panel of well-respected industry experts. Melco was also honored at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia Awards 2019 for Best Integrated Resorts Non-Gaming Attraction for its award-winning show “The House of Dancing Water.”
Expressing his gratitude at the recognition, Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “We are thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition from G2E Asia Awards. Both awards further underpin Melco’s position as a leading integrated resort operator globally that constantly strives to excel in what we offer to our guests while giving back to our local community. These two awards recognize the dedication our colleagues have for delivering pioneering and industry-leading entertainment while always dedicating ourselves to helping those around us in society.”
The G2E Asia conference was embroiled in controversy as Director of Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), Paulo Martins Chan, backed off from a speech which he was supposed to deliver on the second day of the event.
According to the reports in the local media, Chan did not address the conference as he believes that there was an attempt to promote illegal online gambling in Macau by allowing illegal gambling operators to be a part of the exhibition.
