Reed Exhibitions/ Global Gaming Expo and Asia Gaming Brief are delighted to announce their cooperation on the All Asia Dealers’ Championship, with the inaugural edition to take place next May concurrently with G2E Asia 2015.
The concept is for Macau to host a high quality, annual event that honors the front line of the industry and promotes responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility, according to the organizers.
Josephine Lee, senior vice president of Reed Exhibitions Chinasaid: “We are excited about this addition to the G2E Asia schedule of events which will serve to further integrate the Asian gaming industry and bring the different stakeholders together for a fun and exciting event. It makes sense to hold it during G2E Asia, which is THE meeting point for regulators, operators, suppliers, industry associations and representatives from across the region.”
“Our aim is to develop an international platform for croupiers to further develop their talent and skills as they are an integral part of the gaming industry. They need to know that the industry cares about them and is here to support them through their careers,” Rosalind Wade, managing director of Asia Gaming Brief said.
The competition is to be held in an arena style set-up within the G2E Asia Exhibition floor for a “spectator sport” effect, drawing the crowds to cheer for their favorites.
Teams comprised of three dealers from properties all around Asia will compete in three games: Baccarat, Roulette and Blackjack. Croupiers will use the same equipment they deal with on a daily basis at their respective properties to maintain an even field.
The organizers’ priority is to develop a fair competition across the board. The competition’s Rules and Regulations have been carefully developed having in mind the idiosyncrasies of the industry in the region and approved by the participating operators. Judging criteria are divided into three major sections: customer service and interaction, chip work and dealing skills.
Parallel to the competition, organizers are hosting a Career Path Seminar dedicated to professional advancement and responsible gaming. Speakers include C level gaming executives who will share how they climbed the industry’s ropes from the gaming table to the corner office. “The Seminar is an opportunity for croupiers to learn from each other by exchanging experiences with their peers operating in the different jurisdictions,” Rosalind Wade adds.
G2E Asia will return to The Venetian Macao 19-21, May 2015. For further information, visit www.g2easia.com.
