China – G2e Asia to launch the All Asia Dealers’ Championship 2015

By - 8 April 2015

Reed Exhibitions/Global Gaming Expo and Asia Gaming Brief are delighted to announce their cooperation on the All Asia Dealers’ Championship, with the inaugural edition to take place this May concurrently with G2E Asia 2015.

The concept is for Macau to host a high quality, annual event that honours the front line of the industry and promotes responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility, according to the organizers.

Josephine Lee, senior vice president of Reed Exhibitions Greater China said: “We are excited about this addition to the G2E Asia schedule of events which will serve to further integrate the Asian gaming industry and bring the different stakeholders together for a fun and exciting event. It makes sense to hold it during G2E Asia, which is THE meeting point for regulators, operators, suppliers, industry associations and representatives from across the region.”

“Our aim is to develop an international platform for dealers to further develop their talent and skills as they are an integral part of the gaming industry. They need to know that the industry cares about them and is here to support them through their careers,” Rosalind Wade, Managing Director of Asia Gaming Brief said.

The competition is to be held in an arena style set-up within the G2E Asia Exhibition floor for a “spectator sport” effect, drawing the crowds to cheer for their favourites. Industry veteran, Jason Elton, has been named as director of operations, and will act as the liaison between the organizers and the participating operators, suppliers and other supporters of the All Asia Dealers Championship.
Teams comprised of three dealers from properties all around Asia will compete in three games: Baccarat, Roulette and Blackjack. Dealers will use the same equipment they deal with on a daily basis at their respective properties to maintain an even field.

The organisers’ priority is to develop a fair competition across the board. The competition’s Rules and Regulations have been carefully developed having in mind the idiosyncrasies of the industry in the region and approved by the participating operators. Judging criteria are divided into three major sections: customer service and interaction, chip work and dealing skills.

Parallel to the competition, organizers are hosting a Career Path Seminar dedicated to professional advancement and responsible gaming. Speakers include C level gaming executives who will share how they climbed the industry’s ropes from the gaming table to the corner office.
