This year’s Asia Casino and Gaming Conference (ACGC) at the beautiful Marina Bay Sands in Singapore was an overwhelming success in accomplishing all that the conference set out to provide its guests. For anyone fortunate enough to be in attendance for the ACGC it comes as no surprise that Conference representatives are being flooded with positive post conference feedback.
As partners with the ACGC, the CalvinAyre.com team was on the scene providing coverage of the event. Click here to check out some sights,sounds and interviews from the third annual Asian Casino and Gaming Conference.
A large part of the success of the ACGC must be attributed to the sound organization of the event by the Beacon Events teams which made networking and adding contacts in a warm and friendly environment a daily experience for attendees. Additionally, the turnout for event was extremely strong, there was over 80 participants in the first two days alone for the conference. Not wanting to miss such an high profile event, attendees came from everywhere all across the globe and from every avenue and facet of the gaming industry and its affiliations. Attendees came from regional and global operators like SJM, Melco, Venetian, Century Casinos, Nagacorp, and Harrah’s. Regulatory authorities like Gaming Inspection & Coordination Bureau/DICJ of Macau were present, legal advisers, slot machine manufacturers, suppliers of casino management systems, and developers such as Kangwon Land, Lippo Incheon, and Viet Han Trading were all in attendance. It truly was a global event as countries Macau, Singapore, Taiwan, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Austria, USA, Australia and several others were well represented.
The country panels on day one gave a succinct insight into the operating environment and potential of each of those countries. On the operations day, the issue creating the most discussion was about how to get the most out of your casino management system. On the marketing day, some of the best design projects both regionally and globally were showcased, plus people heard how important it was to understand their core markets and get their branding aligned behind that.
“Beacon was pleased with the turn-out but also the quality of people who attended the event, many of whom were repeat customers from previous gaming events.” Rosalind Wade, GM, following the major success of the ACGC added,
“As the other major gaming jurisdiction in Asia, I believe that Singapore is the natural place to build a strong conference and exhibition for the gaming industry, focusing on emerging markets and also how the more mature markets are adapting to the increasingly competitive environment and looking to improve their operations and ROI.”
Cameron Church, AML Compliance Officer of Sportingbet Australia, was one of the many speakers/attendees who gave his testimonial,
“Just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to attend and speak at the conference this week. I certainly got a lot out of it and some very handy contacts from the industry!”
Another speaker from the event remarked,
“This is the second time that I participated at your event and I loved the congress. You were able to bring together truly experienced key gaming people in an intimate setting encouraging an environment for open dialogue. Hereby enabling a true exchange of ideas and knowledge whist stimulating relationship building. Well done!”
Well done indeed, that’s the consensus from all who had the opportunity to attend the third annual Asia Casino and Gaming Conference in Singapore, which continues to be an invaluable and successful event each year.
