The Australasian Gaming Expo has increased in size, with 25 percent more exhibitors lined up for 2016.
“2015 was a sell out year so we’ve increased capacity for 2016 to keep up with exhibitor demand”, said Ross Ferrar, CEO of the Gaming Technologies Association, “Our long term exhibitors wanted to showcase more products which required more floor space, but it has also allowed for more new exhibitors. Over 20 percent of exhibitors at the 2016 Australasian Gaming Expo are new exhibitors, with new products and services to offer the industry”.
The Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) is now in its 27th consecutive year. In the early years a lot of paper moved around, from application forms to show maps and brochures. Now visitors can access all the information they need via the event app. The app features an interactive event floor-plan and uses beacon technology to advise of entertainment, events and more throughout the venue. The mobile app has provided more information than ever before, in real time, in the palm of your hand.
Held from August 9-11, 2016, the event is again being held at the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island. This unusual venue was repurposed from the 2012 London Olympics. After arriving in Australia it was reconstructed on a concrete slab the size of five football fields and enjoys views of both the Harbour Bridge and the Anzac Bridge. This year the AGE will use all four halls of the venue, a whopping 20,000 square metres, 4400 square metres more than the previous years.
Visitors to the event can arrive by complementary ferry from Darling Harbour, complementary bus from Central Station and Pyrmont, or taxi or private car.
Visitors attending the show will again have the opportunity to win a trip for two to the world’s largest Gaming Expo, G2E, held in Las Vegas in September. One trip for two will be drawn on each of the operational days of the AGE.
The Australasian Gaming Expo is the must attend event for the Gaming and hospitality industry. In previous years 97 percent of visitors said they came to see new products and technology. With new equipment being showcased at the AGE, and so many new exhibitors both domestic and international, visitors won’t be disappointed with the 2016 Australasian Gaming Expo.
