AGAwards to honor the gaming industry in May

Held concurrently with G2E Asia on May 17, the annual Asia Gaming Awards (AGAwards) is an annual event to reward excellence and innovation in the gaming industry, with a clear focus on quality.

Produced by Asia Gaming Brief, in association with G2E Asia, and The Innovation Group, the awards night will judge companies in 10 categories spanning the land based and online spheres, with an additional category recognizing the achievements of up and coming leaders in the Asian gaming industry. The categories are:

  • Best Casino Operator

  • Best Integrated Resort

  • Best Casino Design

  • Best Table Games Manufacturer

  • Best Electronic Game Machine Manufacturer

  • Best Industry Supplier

  • Best Online Operator

  • Best Online Supplier

  • Best Mobile Solution

  • Outstanding Contribution in the Field of “Innovation”

  • Special Recognition of Young Industry Leaders under 40

David Green, chair of the organizing committee and judging panel, said, “These awards are the result of a rigorous process, intended to identify and recognize the very best players in the gaming industry in Asia. It is not a beauty contest; the criteria used in judging achievement are both comprehensive and objective. The judging panel has a deep understanding of gaming in general, and gaming in Asia in particular. We look forward to the awards becoming an established annual highlight of G2E Asia, and expect that they will be much sought after by the industry. It is important that industry successes are celebrated by the gaming industry, and where better than at G2E Asia?”

Luis Pereira, AGB managing director said “AGB believes in developing the Asia Gaming Awards as a fair, independent platform to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the industry.”

Rosalind Wade, AGB managing director, said, “AGB is proud to be spearheading this exciting event with the team at G2E Asia and with The Innovation Group. It will no doubt become a high point in the Asian gaming events calendar”.

The AGAwards Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony will be held at 7:00 pm on May 17, 2016, at The Venetian, Macau.

The winners of the ten award categories will be announced and congratulated before the entire industry.
