Clarion Gaming and Beacon Events, organizers of the AiG Congress & Expo, expect the event -- the only one of its kind in Asia -- to become the largest gaming congress in the region.
In 2008 the congress welcomed over 500 attendees, an increase of 170 percent on 2007, and over 50 percent of these attendees were from Asia. AiG 2009 will see a further increase and the organizers anticipate over 700 attendees next year, making it the most important gaming conference for the region and reflecting the surge in interest in this sector.
Congress topics discussed at the event, scheduled for Feb. 24-26, 2009 in Macau, will include betting, poker, skill games, payments and fraud control, responsible gaming, lotteries and bingo, technology and software, multi-platform gaming and operations.
Early confirmed exhibitors in the expanded exhibition area include iovation, Mahjong Time, Mahjong Logic and Transact24 Cyberarts and Microgaming, Prolexic and NYX Interactive, who are also confirmed as sponsors.
