The IAG Academy Summit brings together the best minds in the Asian gaming industry. With content developed by IAG’s Vice Chairman and CEO Andrew W Scott and Managing Editor Ben Blaschke, it features a range of speakers from across the region offering their insights by a range of methodologies. These include traditional panels and presentations as well as more innovative formats never before witnessed at industry trade shows in Asia.

The IAG Academy Summit aims to do things differently, setting itself apart from other events by being innovative, creative and genuinely informative. We will always listen to the industry and put the industry’s needs first. We will strive for interesting and creative presentation formats, and genuinely interesting speakers with real value to offer.

With the industry having now put the pandemic behind it, the current times represent a “reset period” for industry trade shows. As the leading B2B gaming and integrated resort industry media and events brand in the Asia-Pacific region, IAG had often been asked to consider establishing its own industry conference or summit, and the chorus of voices asking for that has been louder than ever in the past 12 months or so given recent changes in existing offerings. It is with this in mind that IAG has progressed with further development of the IAG Academy — it’s recently re-launched education arm — and established the IAG Academy Summit.

The first IAG Academy Summit took place on Wed 13 and Thu 14 Sep 2023, and planning is already underway for the second Summit in September 2024, which will either be a two or three-day summit. More news to come soon.
