his anticipated growth will come from a concerted focus on marketing the event to Asian operators, developers and marketing partners. To reflect this new focus, the event will now be known as the Asian I-Gaming Congress and Expo or AiG, modeled after its successful European counterpart, EiG.
In keeping with Clarion Gaming’s pioneering work in this area, it is fitting that AiG will be among the first gambling-related conferences to be held at the fabulous new Venetian hotel and conference center in Macau.
Scheduled for February 26-29, 2008, the conference will maintain its focus on i-gaming opportunities in Asia, while including coverage of the established industry in Australia and the emerging Indian market. Building on comments from last year and capitalizing on recent developments in the marketplace, the conference will feature additional streams and add-on days to ensure you get full value from your learning experience.
"We’re pleased to build on the success of this targeted event and broaden its focus into specialized days on investment and marketing," said Clarion Gaming CEO Sue Schneider. "While other events may have a session or two and a small number of exhibitors related to i-gaming, AiG is devoted solely to this side of the industry. For exposure to people interested in the i-gaming space, AiG is the only established and growing event in this region."
The AiG team is working to expand its outreach to new companies and new countries in the region to make this the most comprehensive conference and expo for the remote gambling industry in Asia. To achieve this, they are working with Beacon Events, one of the most reputable and successful conference companies in the region. Beacon’s efforts will be invaluable in reaching out to the local Asian market and ensuring maximum participation from regionally-based companies.
Two specialized days added to the core conference in 2008 will be of prime interest to delegates. One is an investment seminar exploring both public and private investment options in the region. It will focus on the opportunities and challenges for investors in this growing industry and is sure to be an excellent one-day event for those in search of investment as well as those seeking to invest.
Another add-on day will look at the marketing challenges inherent to the region. For those looking for a review of the pertinent laws in various countries, as well as feedback on the types of marketing and advertising methods that work best for the myriad of cultures living in this region, this will be the chance to meet the experts and learn.
Networking events will be plentiful during the four days of AiG to facilitate meeting and networking with the high-powered executives in attendance. These will include receptions and parties, plus we are hoping to offer poker and mahjong tournaments for added interest and fun.
