Dedicated hotel seminars announced for Australasian Gaming Expo 2018.

 The Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) and Asia Gaming Brief (AGB), are excited to announce a comprehensive seminar program to run over the three days of the Australasian Gaming Expo.

This year’s program takes a look at the future of the gaming industry in Australasia, covering topics related to new technology, gaming, hospitality, service, and the customer – all of which are aimed at helping you get more from your hospitality venue.

In addition to covering the above hospitality and gaming topics, there will be a seminar specifically tailored to the interest of hotel visitors: “How gaming operations affect pub valuation”, being held on day three of the Expo.

The Pubs/Hotels Summit is a short seminar program dedicated to the hotels/pubs space in Australia. Topics discussed include: Changes to NSW gaming regulations, advantages in valuation for the regional pubs, how these arrangements will likely affect valuations of metro pubs taking on the leases, how new regulations have affected the price and valuation of entitlements, technology infrastructure, how CRT and TITO affect revenue, and the relationship between machine age and returns.

While machines are profitable once installed, the purchasing of machines are expensive, and machines typically don’t stay long before your customers bore of them. This session will look at the specific challenges faced by pubs and hotels, who are trying to find a balance between new machines, old favourites with cost and customer expectations.

Held in state-of-the-art seminar rooms located within the ICC Sydney complex, attendance at the seminars is complimentary for visitors attending the Australasian Gaming Expo, on a first come-first served basis. Visitors who have completed the on-line registration to attend AGE 2018 will be sent further details such as seminar session times, as they become available.
