About

Inside Asian Gaming is Asia’s leading B2B digital and print media brand for the gaming, resort and entertainment industry. It has the highest website traffic, social media following, digital newsletter distribution and print magazine distribution of any such brand.

Founded in 2005, IAG has a broad business editorial focus on the Asian gaming and integrated resort industry. It is widely distributed to industry executives throughout Macau and the rest of Asia in two formats: a monthly English and traditional Chinese fully bilingual digital and print magazine and a daily English language e-newsletter titled IAG Breakfast Briefing, delivered at 8am Macau time in English and 11am in traditional Chinese each weekday. IAG also publishes special magazine editions for G2E Asia each May and the Asian Gaming Power 50 each November.

IAG produces all original content. As well as almost always being the first media outlet to publish breaking industry news, the deep domain knowledge our journalists have accumulated from as far back as the 1980s allows IAG to offer highly insightful opinion pieces and analysis of industry news. We do not aggregate media content or copy from other media outlets. Conversely, IAG is often the original source (sometimes credited, more often not!) of many stories published around the world covering the Asian IR and gaming industry.

In January 2019, Inside Asian Gaming launched IAG Japan to cover the burgeoning Integrated Resort industry in Japan. For just over three years from January 2019 to January 2022, at the height of international interest in operating a Japanese integrated resort, IAG Japan had two formats: a monthly Japanese and English fully bilingual digital magazine and a daily Japanese language e-newsletter titled IAG Daily Briefing. International industry interest in operating in Japan has since waned considerably, so after the January 2022 issue of IAG Japan was released we discontinued the Japanese language version of the monthly magazine, but we still issue our Japanese language IAG Daily Briefing when major Japan-related news breaks.

Since 2008 IAG has been renowned for publishing “The Asian Gaming Power 50”. Anxiously awaited each year, The Asian Gaming Power 50 is an annual ranking of the 50 most influential and prominent Asian gaming industry leaders and executives. The Asian Gaming Power 50 is celebrated each November with IAG organizing a glamorous Black Tie Gala Dinner in a Macau Integrated Resort ballroom. The gala dinner ballroom location rotates annually amongst Macau’s six Integrated Resort concessionaires.

IAG produces Macau After Dark (MAD), a series of casual industry networking social events held in Macau every few months which brings together key industry decision-makers.

IAG is the Lead Media Partner for G2E AsiaG2E Asia @ the Philippines (which held its inaugural event in December 2019 in Manila), and the G2E Asia Online Conference. We also publish G2E Asia Daily, the daily newspaper of G2E Asia, and co-organize the G2E Asia Awards with Reed Exhibitions.

IAG is the Lead Media Partner for the MGS Entertainment Show (held each November in Macau). We also publish MGS Daily, the daily newspaper of the MGS Entertainment Show.

IAG is the Asian Lead Media Partner for ICE Asia, which held its inaugural event digitally on 8 and 9 June 2020. We publish The Daily Download, the official daily digital record of ICE Asia.

IAG is the Lead Media Partner for the Phil-Asian Gaming Expo (PAGE), held each July in Manila.

In addition to being the Lead Media Partner for various major industry trade shows throughout Asia, IAG is an official media partner of dozens of leisure and gaming industry events held across every continent of the world.

IAG attends numerous industry trade shows and international conferences and seminars across Asia and throughout the world, including ICE in London in February, G2E Asia in Macau in May (and in Singapore in August 2022), PAGE in Manila in July, AGE in Sydney in August, G2E in Las Vegas in October, G2E Asia @ the Philippines in Manila in November, MGS in Macau in November and various developing shows covering the burgeoning Japanese IR industry in Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka. Our Vice Chairman and CEO Andrew W Scott and our Managing Editor Ben Blaschke variously chair, moderate and speak at such conferences and seminars.

IAG has produced a range of industry conferences and seminars such as the Cambodia International Gaming Conference on behalf of the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Ministry of Interior of the Kingdom of Cambodia, sessions for the G2E Asia conference and the MGS Entertainment Show conference, and the highly acclaimed “Strategy and Leadership for Personal and Business Success” seminar series.

IAG Consulting is IAG’s consulting business unit, which offers consulting and revenue support services for businesses exploring or operating in the Asian gaming and Integrated Resort industry. IAG Consulting also produces tailor-made training and education programs (and has been commissioned by Philippines regulator PAGCOR to do so) and organizes events on behalf of our clients, such as product launches, seminars and social events.
