The theme of responsible citizenship was discussed repeatedly by gaming machine manufacturers last week at the New Zealand Gaming Expo in Auckland.

Charity Gaming Association CEO, Francis Wevers, said statistics revealed widespread demand for the industry to make positive constructive change.

Australasian Gaming Machine Manufacturers Association CEO, Ross Ferrar, said the exhibition provided highly relevant content.

“From the opening address by [New Zealand] Minister of Internal Affairs Rick Barker, through two full days of thought-provoking conference sessions and the spectacle of new products on display, the Expo confirmed its place as a focal event for hospitality professionals interested in gaming,” Ferrar said.

Along with the theme of corporate citizenship, presentations were provided by fast bowler and author Sir Richard Hadlee, who spoke on the importance of sport, and Skycity Entertainment Group chairman, Rod McGeoch, who is best known as the leader of Sydney’s successful Olympics 2000 bid.
