The summer holidays are over and its time to dust off our diaries and get back on the networking and conferencing wagon. For those who will be in Manila on September 8th, AGB has organized the next installment of their “Asian Gaming Networking Social Series”, an evening of drinks, nibbles and networking with like-minded individuals working in the Asia-facing gambling industry. In addition to providing Friday night’s festivities, AGB has organized a complimentary Online Casino Optimization seminar thanks to sponsors EveryMatrix.
To get more details on what you can expect on the 8th, CalvinAyre.com spoke with Ros Wade of AGB and we hope to see you at Manila’s Salon de Ning.
Becky Liggero: Thank you for joining us, Ros! Can you tell us more about the Asian Gaming Networking Social coming up on Friday this week?
Ros Wade: This is the next in a series of social events that we’ve been organizing across Asia over the last 2-3 years. Our upcoming event in Manila has the support of a number of industry suppliers, Sports Betting Community, and also of course CalvinAyre.com. It’s fun way for the local industry to get together and connect with each other in a relaxed environment, meet colleagues and clients, and have a few drinks.
BL: Yes, we’re looking forward to it. So who else is going to be there?
RW: We are expecting around 150 people for the event in September, many from the online community but also from the casino side. Companies represented include Arasoft, August Gaming, Bodog, City of Dreams, DFNN, eBet, Everlounge, FCLRC, Hatch Asia, Ladbrokes Coral Group, Okada Manila, Oriental Game, PhilWeb, Sky Arrow Technology, to name just a few.
BL: Fantastic. Can you elaborate on who is sponsoring this event and why these sponsors are so important to you?
RW: AGB is enormously grateful to our wonderful sponsors who make this event possible. A very special thanks goes to Aruze, Betdeal, BCI Worldwide, EveryMatrix, IPC, Jade Gaming, Kiron Interactive, DGx Hub Technologies, Limelight Networks, LR Data, Play’n GO, SBTech, TKHS and Unity Technologies. Without them, the event wouldn’t be where it is today.
BL: A big thanks to your sponsors, we do appreciate it. What can your guests expect on the night of the 8th?
RW: Salon de Ning is a really cool, stylish venue, and very conveniently located at the Peninsula Makati in Manila. We’ve got premium drinks, cocktails, champagne and delicious canapes to serve our guests, plus lots of give-aways courtesy of our sponsors! It’s very casual, and everyone is really friendly.
BL: Sounds like a wonderful event you’ve put together, can you share the logistical details and let us know how we can register?
RW: The drinks start at 6pm on Friday 8 September until 9pm. Registration is essential via email at [email protected]. There’s a cover charge on the door of P2,000 for those not on the list, so everyone is encouraged to RSVP. We’re looking forward to a great night as always!
