AGB announces the debut of Asia Gaming Genealogy Tree & Reunion Dinner, to replace Asia Gaming Awards on May 14, 2018.
(May 16, 2018) In lieu of the 3rd edition of the Asia Gaming Awards, Asia Gaming Brief is announcing the launch of one of its most ambitious projects – the Asia Gaming Genealogy Tree & Reunion Dinner, set to take place on Monday 14 May, 2018 at St. Regis, Macau.
The “Asia Gaming Genealogy Tree” is a significant undertaking pioneered by AGB which will serve to map out the key connections and networks within Asia’s gaming industry.
An ongoing project, the Gaming Tree will identify and bring to light the network of people who have dedicated their careers to shaping the Asia Gaming Industry. Who did they work with and when, where have they gone since, and where are they now?
Whether you are new to the industry, or a seasoned veteran, the Gaming Tree will become an essential tool for identifying the keys movers & shakers in the industry and their respective networks.
As a pioneer in the industry, AGB has always been committed to constantly innovating and providing the industry with engaging projects and platforms that make a difference.
Along those lines, AGB will be replacing its existing “Asia Gaming Awards” event with the debut of the “Asia Gaming Genealogy Tree” and its accompanying Annual Reunion Dinner, set to take place on Monday 14 May at St. Regis, Macau.
Over the years, the Gaming Tree will continue to grow in tandem with the industry, with each year’s update presented at the Annual Reunion Dinner, bringing together old friends and creating the opportunity for new connections.
