Interface Hospitality wins best stand at AGE

    The 25th Australasian Gaming Expo, now under way at the Sydney Convention Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, attracted a large crowd for its first day on Tuesday. What they came to see was the world’s best and latest gaming and hospitality equipment – and that’s exactly what they got. The event owners and operators, the Gaming Technologies Association, added to the fun by offering a trip for two to Las Vegas for each day of the Expo which on Tuesday was won by Tony Mathew from Wests Campbelltown Leagues Club. The Association also presented a Best Stand award, which took the judges some time to decide. Based on a strict set of criteria, it was agreed that a number of exhibitors had excelled in terms of creative execution of brand identity and key messages; innovative and efficient use of space; simplicity of form and aesthetics; imaginative use of materials, colour and lighting; and most importantly, Visitor engagement and interaction. 180 exhibition stands put in a huge effort to make the event a welcoming, entertaining and innovative exhibition showcase. Of these, the judges’ compliments were extended to a 25 year veteran, Plantscaping Solutions and newcomer QALAB. The Best Stand award winner for 2014 is Interface Hospitality. The judges described their stand as fulfilling all the criteria and additionally welcoming Visitors during the show.
