Visitors and exhibitors alike can expect a vibrant week-long program of industry innovation, education, networking and (let’s be honest) fun, around the annual Keno Australasian Hospitality and Gaming Expo when it hits the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on March 27-28, 2019.

A collaboration between Clubs NSW, Clubs Queensland and the Club Managers’ Association Australia, the AHG Expo showcases the very best in Australasian clubs, pubs, restaurants, cafes, bars and entertainment venues.

“Business owners must open their eyes and minds to innovation and change, while also being willing to lead and innovate,” says Doug Flockhart, Clubs Queensland CEO. “AHG Expo brings all of our industry’s latest ideas, innovation and technology together under the one convenient roof.”

Offering a diverse selection of hospitality, gaming, food and beverage exhibitors, the 2019 AHG Expo will again be enhanced by the inclusion of the wildly popular Tastes precinct, which debuted at this year’s event. On its return in 2019, the precinct will cover some 50 per cent more space, serving up even more mouth-watering food, beverage and dining-specific business ideas and services.

“Add to that our week-long program of education and networking events and visitors have a very good reason to enjoy a tax-deductible visit to our Sunshine State!” says Mr Flockhart. “In fact, we encourage them to bring the family and make a trip of it – we are in the business of entertaining, and entertain we will!”
