The Australasian Gaming Expo is of course the place to see the latest in gaming machinery and equipment. It’s also the place where pubs and clubs come to see the complete range of hospitality suppliers, with a staggering 92% (218 out of 236) of exhibitors at the 2018 show offering an extensive range of non-gaming, hospitality related products and services.
And in some of the in-demand hospitality sectors there are multiple exhibitors to choose from, with the following sectors ably represented:
Food and Beverage suppliers
Cash Handling Equipment suppliers
Point of Sale System suppliers
Building Service suppliers
Interior Design & Fitout Service suppliers
Plus there are many more, selling services or products including; signage, security, membership management, ATM equipment, office technology, heating, and flooring products – to name just a few.
From the exhibitors’ point of view we have many who have returned year after year with 119 returning hospitality exhibitors already registered for AGE 2019.
And many of these exhibitors have glowing testimonies about their successes at the AGE. Here’s what Robert Van den Bergh from Commercial Kitchen Company a supplier of equipment that can create everything from Pizzas to Peking Duck had to say about our Expo last year:
More new leads from new areas of Australia, especially Regional. We learned this year that’s a lot of leads from the last two shows have now converted to customers.
Another interesting supplier is Riva Ice Cream, a soft serve Ice Cream specialist, which has been coming to AGE for 15 years, a feature of their presence being visitors eagerly queueing for trial tubs of Ice Cream. Jeff Ganter, Riva’s Operations Manager summed up Riva’s involvement with the following comment:
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.
In a nutshell it’s the sheer diversity of hospitality exhibitors that makes the Australasian Gaming Expo the must attend event for 2019.
With this year being the 30th anniversary of the AGE, there will be special celebrations for both visitors and exhibitors alike.
