Welcome to AGE 2019 and our 30th Anniversary!
At the 2019 Australasian Gaming Expo you’ll not only be at one of the world’s largest casino gaming equipment trade exhibitions, but you’ll also be inside the new International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney. The all new ICC is in the heart of the Darling Harbour precinct with a host of restaurants, nightlife and accommodation all within a short harbour side stroll.
Last year was our 29th exhibition and it set a new attendance record with 8,638 visits, which was a 7% increase over the 2017 expo, already a record year. It also featured 237 exhibitors, covering a broad spectrum of hospitality suppliers including beverage, food, cash security, furniture, staff uniforms, paging and communications, signage and displays, building services, AV, financial services and of course gaming.
At the 2019 Australasian Gaming Expo you’ll also be joining us as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of what has become the largest Gaming and Hospitality Exhibition in the southern hemisphere.
At the 2019 Australasian Gaming Expo you’ll be at one of the largest hospitality trade equipment exhibitions at the ICC Sydney.
Again this year we will have an amazing 19,000 square metres of exhibition space available, all under one roof with more than 10 metres of clear ceiling height.
The ICC Sydney offers exhibitors amenities such as an undercover loading dock, free WiFi, access to seminar rooms with catering that’s a step above the normal Expo fare, all presented in a scale that’s designed to impress.
The Australasian Gaming Expo is supported by an extensive digital and magazine marketing campaign that targets both returning and new visitors. The Australasian Gaming Expo marketing campaign is global, reaching potential decision makers both within Australia as well as Europe, Asia, South Americas and New Zealand.
More leads that we would normally expect and expect a significant number to convert. Definitely Australia’s premier gaming show. Significant increase in hoteliers this year. More hoteliers this year than last year.
