The annual three-day Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) will be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre from August 24, with a conference component free to gaming industry organisations.

Now in its 18th year, the AGE is already 95 per cent booked and will feature 175 exhibitors and daily conference programs headed by both local and international experts.

Australasian Gaming Machine Manufacturers Association (AGMMA) hosts and operates the AGE, which AGMMA executive officer Ross Ferrar said will be a standout year.

“We have a stellar line-up of speakers and entertainers at this year’s conference, covering issues such as gaming technology, regulation and legislation, design and décor, and gaming investment and reward,” Ferrar said.

The conferences will address communication, recreation and entertainment on the first day, followed by corporate life and gaming as a business on day two, and concluded by gaming and future technology on the last day.

Keynote speaker Michael Shackleford will discuss international trends, with other speakers including Ross Greenwood, Rod McGeoch, Allan Pease and Mark Taylor.

“We’re expecting lively and controversial panel discussions in addition to learning and networking opportunities for delegates,” Ferrar said.
