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.

More than 4000 visitors poured through the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre doors in 2022, excited to return to the event after its COVID-induced two-year hiatus. The 2022 AHG Expo was the first to go ahead since the record-breaking 2019 event.

Now, with year-on-year growth, the 2023 AHG Expo looks set to raise the bar even higher – especially with new major sponsor TAB, MAX & SKY on board. Tabcorp Chief Operating Officer Paul Carew said he is proud to partner with the AHG Expo for another year in an expanded effort that now encompasses their three leading brands – TAB, MAX & SKY.

Reflecting the ever-evolving nature of the hospitality and gaming industry, the 2023 AHG Expo will debut some exciting changes to both its expo program and its ancillary events, which kick off on Tuesday March 21.


The AHG Expo is giving away an unbeatable door prize, giving one lucky visitor the chance to win a 12-day USA trip. The itinerary (which can be viewed in full on the AHG Expo website) offers an unforgettable trip to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago – where you’ll stop by the industry-leading National Restaurant Association Show.

It’s the largest prize the AHG Expo has offered in its nine-year history, and all you need to do is walk through the door. That’s right – simply registering as a visitor and attending the 2023 AHG Expo will put you in the running to win the trip of a lifetime. Just make sure you’re there when the prize is drawn at 1pm on Thursday March 23 at the TAB, MAX & SKY stand (Stand 71).

The ultimate prelude to the AHG Expo, the AHG Congress (formerly the National Governance and Management Congress) on Tuesday March 21 brings the industry together to tackle its most pressing issues.

Focusing on resilience, innovation and building and connecting with communities, the AHG Congress will stimulate your thinking ahead of the expo itself. You’ll hear from…

  • Ian Stephens: One of Australia’s leading speakers on leadership, team management and balance, Ian Stephens is skilled at identifying what is crucial to success in business – and what isn’t.
  • Nadine Champion: Learn how to develop resilience, overcome obstacles, and adapt positively to change with this talk by martial arts expert and ‘courage creator’ Nadine Champion.
  • Panel – Leadership and governance challenges and suggested solutions for 2023 and beyond: Don’t miss this insightful leadership and governance panel presented by Mick McHugh (Chief Information Security Officer at Tabcorp), David Hiscox (CEO at Dapto Leagues Club & Federal President CMAA), Michael Lewis (CEO at Pannam Group), and Geoff Wohlsen (Wohlsen Consulting). The 40-minute session will discuss such pressing topics as ‘Cybersecurity: How ready are you?’, ‘The gender binary environment – what is the expectation?’ and ‘Storytelling: Are clubs any good at this?’.
