Rolling the dice in Macau

Neat little acquisition here in Macau: Reed and the American Gaming Association (AGA) have teamed up to buy the Australasian Gaming Machine Manufacturers Association's Asian Gaming Expo which is currently underway at the Macau Tower. It will be re-branded G2E Asia, bringing it into line with AGA's events in the US and, in 2008 will be able to move into the more spacious surroundings of the Macau Venetian.

Call me cynic if you will, but I find myself less mystified now by the stories appearing in local newspapers at the beginning of the week from the expo's current organisers bemoaning the lack of space in the Macau Tower and saying that many more stands could have been sold if only there were a bigger hall.
