AGE sells out exhibitor space

Australia’s Gaming Technologies Association, owner and operator of the Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) announced today that the event is a sell-out.

Scheduled for August 15-17, 2017 at the new ICC Sydney at Darling Harbour, AGE 2017 has already shattered records for the most exhibition stands at 248, largest exhibition stand space and highest number of visitor pre-registrations in the event’s 28 year history.

In addition, 1,120 complimentary seminar places are sold out.

“The results are a big vote of confidence in the future of the industry” said Ross Ferrar, CEO of the Gaming Technologies Association. “As well as providing reliable, secure entertainment for millions of Australians, poker machine operations support more than 140,000 irreplaceable jobs and have provided over $50 billion in government revenue over the last 10 years. Anyone who has driven on a road, studied at school or university, or visited a hospital in Australia over the last 10 years is a direct beneficiary of poker machine operations.”
