Following the success of 2017’s 10th anniversary IAG Asian Gaming Power 50 list of the most influential people in the Asian gaming industry, Inside Asian Gaming has announced that the 11th annual list, to be published in the December 2018 issue of IAG, will be unveiled at a black tie gala dinner to be held in Macau on the evening of Friday 23 November 2018.

The gala dinner, planned for late November each year, is set to become an annual fixture on the Macau social calendar.

Since first launching in 2008, the Asian Gaming Power 50 has become the definitive list of the gaming industry’s most important people. Carefully compiled each year to reflect the most powerful individuals of the prior 12 months, it is keenly followed by the biggest names in Asian gaming and beyond – including, of course, those who feature on the list itself. The IAG website received well over 30,000 hits within a day of the 2017 Asian Gaming Power 50 list being published.

"Having celebrated 10 years by moving to the December edition of Inside Asian Gaming for the first time, the time is right to present the Asian Gaming Power 50 in the elite setting it deserves," said O MEDIA CEO Andrew W Scott.

Groups of 10 can book their table at the inaugural Asian Gaming Power 50 gala dinner for HK$12,888 with a number of sponsorship opportunities also available.

Inside Asian Gaming will reveal more information on this special event as the year progresses.
