More than 7000 delegates attended the AGE at ICC Sydney.

More than 7000 delegates attended this year’s Australasian Gaming Expo over three days at ICC Sydney with the Gaming Technologies Association event also confirming the appointments of ex ClubsNSW boss and Aristocrat GM Anthony Ball as board Chair and Cameron Louis as vice chair.

It was an eventful week as just one day after appearing as a panellist on the AGE’s Road to Recovery Networking Lunch, Bankstown Sports CEO Mark Condi announced his retirement after 30 years at the south-western Sydney club.

Moderated by Michelle Pascoe, the lunchtime audience also heard from co-panellists Aristocrat MD and CEO Trevor Croker and publican The Hon. Craig Laundy from Laundy Group with the discussion covering hot topics including hospitality post-Covid, cashless gaming, labour shortages, facial recognition and the monopolies of TAB and Foxtel.

With more than 220 exhibitors from all industry sectors, the show floor was bustling with trade and technical demos. Wine exhibitor, Tempus Two took home the Best Stand award at this year’s event and EGM base maker Industric was honoured with the new Steve Cowan Memorial Award, for a new exhibitor for innovation and participation in the industry.

Three lucky AGE visitors also won a trip to Las Vegas to visit the Global Gaming Expo, G2E. The lucky winners came from The Fraternity Club, Taren Point Bowling Club and Algester Sports Club.

“AGE strives to deliver a bigger and better show year on year for all our stakeholders. With a core focus on technology and the sustainability of the gaming industry, we believe 2022 has delivered maximum value and a satisfying experience for visitors, exhibitors and sponsors,” Patel concluded.
