The coming Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) will for the first time see discussions webcast live from the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Hosted by the Gaming Technologies Association (GTA), the three-day expo starts on August 16 and will include an Australasian Gaming Briefing, which is to be held on August 17 from 4 to 6pm.

GTA chief executive, Ross Ferrar, said the live webcast at the Australasian Gaming Briefing, will allow those that can’t make the briefing to remain up-to-date.

“This event comes at a very important time in the development of the region’s gaming industry, so we have made the briefing accessible to everybody,” Ferrar said.

The NSW Minister for Racing and Gaming, Kevin Greene MP, will welcome delegates and Channel 9’s Business and Finance Editor, Ross Greenwood, will brief them with the latest on the global financial crisis.

Gaming Council CEO, Cheryl Vardon, is set to update what’s happening at the moment around each Australasian gaming jurisdiction.

Futurist thought leader and media personality, Dr Keith Suter, will lead a panel discussion entitled “What If…?”, looking at different scenarios and their likely outcomes.

“The way to prepare for the future is to plan well in advance,” Ferrar said. “Dr Keith’s session targets what could happen in and around gaming and hospitality – and how we can all prepare thoroughly in order to achieve the best long-term outcomes”.

More than 170 exhibitors are participating at the AGE. For more information and to register for the live webcast link, click here.
