The IAG Academy IR Awards is a live in-person black-tie gala dinner event held each September at Newport World Resorts in Manila, Philippines, alongside the IAG Academy Summit. The Awards celebrate and recognize the best of the best in the integrated resort industry across the Asia Pacific region. 

Organizer Inside Asian Gaming is an Asian born and bred company with an in-depth knowledge of the people and companies who have made the industry in the Asia-Pacific region what it is today. Publishing around 2,000 news, analysis and opinion articles on the industry in APAC each year, IAG has the credibility and convening authority to organize the most prestigious, credible and recognized Awards for the Asia-Pacific Integrated Resort industry.

Our number one priority with the IAG Academy IR Awards is transparency and fairness. As with everything IAG does, we do it differently. We want to see the true best-of-the-best honored and therefore take extraordinary steps to ensure each category is judged and awarded without fear or favor. Anybody can make public nominations. The Awards judging process is fully audited. There are a large number of Awards judges. The criteria to be a judge is published and any person meeting that criteria will be allowed to become a judge if they wish to do so. Judging is by vote and the votes are sealed and kept indefinitely to allow future audit if necessary.

The IAG Academy IR Awards are the true awards of the Asia-Pacific gaming industry!
