The AGE is reminding hotel operators that the Australasian Gaming Expo is all the best new gaming technology in one place, but also everything else hospitality, and this year with an expanded seminar program.

The 2018 Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) will take place at ICC Sydney Darling Harbour on 14-16 August, hosted by the Gaming Technologies Association (GTA).

As well as the latest games, cabinets and management for the best-performing gaming rooms, publicans can poke, probe and taste food suppliers, cash-handling and ATM machines, entertainment providers and audio-visual, and all manner of décor and operational equipment.

Custom solutions for lighting, heating, renovations or ground-up builds can be found across the hundreds of exhibitors, hailing from around Australia, but also from the USA, Canada, Taiwan, New Zealand and the British Virgin Islands.

Five months out, the GTA reports over 85 per cent of exhibitor space is booked. (Enquiries here)

This year will also see a return and expansion of the industry seminars, offering technical advice and expertise to hotel and club operators, and plans for talks on issues relating directly to publicans.

The onsite seminars are intended to help operators get more from their businesses, covering topics from marketing and mobile trends, to profitability and yield optimisation. Full line-up yet to be announced.

The GTA engaged in a collaborative partnership for the seminars with Asian Gaming Brief, stemming from its specialist experience operating a very successful seminar program at the ASEAN Gaming Summit, in Manilla.

And the happenings of the Expo will again be documented in the AGE newspaper, with hard copies available at the door.
