AGE 2017 registrations are up 20 pct on 2016

It’s now less than a month to go to the Australasian Gaming Expo, which is set to open at the new ICC Sydney in Darling Harbour on August 15 to 17, 2017.

In addition to the fact that online visitor registrations are also up by 20 percent in comparison to the same period for 2016, the number of confirmed exhibitors has grown by 30 percent versus 2016.

“We see these two statistics as a big vote of confidence in both the value of the event itself, combined with the interest in the move to the new ICC Sydney, which is more conveniently located at Darling Harbour” said Ross Ferrar, the CEO of the Gaming Technologies Association.

New machines and games are the biggest attraction at the AGE with exhibitors looking forward to the event each year to unveil their latest products, however with almost 250 exhibitors, new gaming technologies are not the only attraction. Visitors come to see the latest in Audio Visual equipment, ATM Equipment, Building Services, Cash Handling & Equipment, Consultancy Services, Entertainment, Financial Services, Food and Beverage, Furniture, I.T., Interior Design & Fitout, Marketing Services, Membership Management, Paging & Communication, Point of Sale Systems, Retail, Security, Signage & Displays and Staff Uniforms.

This year’s event also has over 800 complimentary seminar places available and many of these have been booked, including sessions on venues, research, casinos, technology, cash, investors and a key session where financial commentator Michael Pascoe will moderate a panel of global gaming supply companies’ CEOs.

Organizers say this year’s Australasian Gaming Expo is set to be the biggest, brightest, most entertaining event since it started 28 years ago.
