The Australasian Gaming Expo put on its annual show last week for thousands of visitors from around the country and around the world and by all accounts it was a big success in an optimistic industry.
The strength of the exhibition was very apparent, with 15,000 square metres of the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre full to capacity with the best and latest gaming and hospitality equipment on show for trade clients.
Event owner and operator, the Gaming Technologies Association (GTA), gave away a trip for two to Las Vegas each day of the Expo; congratulations go to Max Williams from Melbourne, Victoria; Ron Workman from Currumbin, Queensland; and Bill Glenn from Belrose, NSW.
The winner of “Best Stand” was Task Retail Technology, whose Point of Sale software development and systems integration expertise were brilliantly displayed through a creative design and innovative display.
Big Screen Video is an Australian owned business specialising in LED solutions for large-scale video entertainment and digital signage displays.
Director, Toby Waley, told TheShout that this year’s show went very well for the technology company.
“[The] AGE was a great success for the Big Screen Video Group.
“It was a very well organised event that generated quality interest in our big LED Screens. Exciting times ahead!”
Leading industry super fund, Intrust Super, showcased its new EmployerAccess service that streamlines contribution management for employers, and was impressed with the calibre of the enquiries at the AGE.
“The weather has been fantastic, the venue is superb and all delegates have been good company – in short, the Australasian Gaming Expo has been a great event and we will definitely be back again next year,” said Intrust’s client service manager, Wayne Rogers. “We have been looking after the hotel, clubs and casino industries for more than twenty years. We understand what you need from a super fund!”
In 2013 the AGE will be held earlier in the month of August, taking place Tuesday 13 to Thursday 15, at the same location, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour.
