Bringing together the latest and greatest products, services and technology under one convenient roof, the Australasian Hospitality and Gaming Expo (AHG Expo) has cemented itself as a must-attend event for business owners and managers in hospitality and gaming.

This year’s expo is set to be the first time the hospitality and gaming industries will come together since August, 2019, and will also be the first to go ahead with the event’s new major sponsor, MAX, after the partnership was announced in 2020.

The MAX AHG Expo will be accompanied by a jam-packed programme of ancillary events, kicking off on Tuesday March 22.


It’s official: Cameron Smith has been announced as the keynote speaker for the 2022 AHG Breakfast. But that’s not all: TAB is also coming on board this year as the breakfast’s major sponsor, proving the Brisbane Entertainment and Convention Centre will be the place to be on Thursday March 24.

Regarded as one of the greatest NRL players of all time, Cameron has represented Queensland and Australia, won countless medals, and holds records for highest all-time point scorer (2786), most tackles made (16917) and most wins (310) – to name a few. Having captained the Melbourne Storm to greatness, we can’t think of anyone more qualified to talk all things leadership.
