The Australasian Gaming Expo is kicking off for 2023, offering up-to-date news on all hospitality and gaming products and services.

Every year there are long-time suppliers in hospitality, pitching their annual exhibits and on-hand to talk turkey about industry concerns and sticking points. But each year there are also newcomers to the Expo and trade events, making the AGE an efficient source of research for licensed venue operators.

As well as the staples and tried-and-true items, the show floor is loaded with innovation, fresh ideas, new products, and technology.

Many visitors to the event come to see a one-stop collection of many of the brands that are competing the hardest for the custom of operators, where they can compare value and options side by side. See suppliers of beer and other beverages and liquor wholesalers, foodservice ingredients and equipment, snacks and refreshments, interior and furniture design, construction, payment systems, security, playgrounds and more.

Each day of the AGE brings seminars in the upstairs meeting rooms, on topics such as anti-money laundering, digital payments,

regulation, international staff acquisition, analysts' assessment of the industry, harnessing AI in hospitality, and creating superior customer service.

And once again, PubTIC will be taking the stage at 1pm on Tuesday in the seminar rooms with the inaugural HospoHeroes competition. Two mixed panels will attempt to answer questions on the nuts and bolts of business, historic milestones of Australian hospitality and other pivotal social subjects, vying for points and the hospitality trivia trophy.

Also, every day of the AGE the name of one attendee will be drawn to win two tickets on an educational tour to Las Vegas and G2E. All that is required to enter is to attend.



Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd encourages everyone to join them in celebrating Len Ainsworth’s 100th birthday on their stand at the 2023 Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) to be held at the ICC, Sydney. Attendees can view Mr Ainsworth’s legacy and also have the opportunity to leave him a birthday message.

To commemorate this momentous occasion Ainsworth is proud to launch the new A-Star 100, a signature edition A-Star cabinet. This new addition to the A-Star family features never before seen 3 x 32” LCD screens, a topper mounted sound bar and exclusive signature plaque. Mr Ainsworth said “What an honour to have a special edition cabinet to celebrate by birthday, she’s a beauty!”

Also headlining Ainsworth’s stand is new brand Oriental Gongs! Oriental Gongs is launching as a Link with three games, Dragon, Phoenix and Lion with stand-alone progressive options to follow. This brand incorporates player favourite free game mechanics alongside a new Hold ‘n Spin Fortune feature that provides increased anticipation up until the last spin!

In celebration of the Oriental Gongs release, Ainsworth is excited to announce that AGE attendees will have the opportunity to “Hit it to Win it!” with some on-stand fun and competitions giving venues the chance to win some great discounts.
