How are you preparing for G2E Asia?
At Alfastreet, we’ve been diligently gearing up for G2E Asia. We’ve been centring our efforts on assembling a wide-ranging selection of products that not only authentically embodies our brand, but also meets the specific needs of the Asian market. We’ve also prioritized strengthening our team, especially in sales and support roles.
For the first time since early 2020, most major Asian markets are now open. Do you think there have been any long-term changes?
Indeed, the reopening of major Asian markets marks an essential milestone in our industry’s recovery. We anticipate long-term changes, mainly an increased focus on health and safety protocols. Customers might also exhibit a heightened desire for innovative and immersive gaming experiences as they return to casinos after a long break.

What do you think customers are looking for in casinos post-pandemic?
Customers’ expectations have indeed shifted in the post-pandemic world. After enduring a prolonged period of minimal social interaction and restrained entertainment, customers are now looking forward to returning to casinos. However, their priorities have evolved.
While gaming pleasure remains crucial, there’s a heightened focus on health and safety measures. Customers would want assurance that casinos follow stringent cleanliness, hygiene, and safety protocols, offering a safe environment to enjoy their gaming experience.
