Gold, Gold, Gold!
AGE 2016 concluded today and with 6,813 visitors attending over the three days, it has established a new record for attendance, since the show first started 27 years ago.
We believe that the success of the show reflects that the Hospitality and Gaming Industry in Australia is a dynamic and vibrant one that continues to grow and we have been able to capitalise on this growth. In achieving this we thank both the exhibitors and the venue itself for their contribution.
Today also marked the end of an era as we depart from the temporary venue which has housed us for the last three years, while the new ICC venue is being built at Darling Harbour.
We leave with fond memories of the event continuing to grow and appreciate the support of the venue team working as one with our teams. We thank venue management and staff, and we will remember the venue fondly.
We also applaud the courage and commitment of the NSW State Government for its investment in the temporary venue, which certainly contributed in a major way to the sustainability of the Australasian Gaming Expo – and no doubt, the exhibition industry generally – during what could have been an extremely difficult 3 years.
We’re excited and optimistic about the event’s future at ICC Sydney at Darling Harbour. Almost 100 exhibitors covering two-thirds of the exhibition floor have already committed to exhibit at the Australasian Gaming Expo on 15- 17 August 2017. The new event website is already operational at www.austgamingexpo.com and plans are extremely advanced for an even bigger and better event.
