There is now just one week to go until the inaugural IAG Academy Summit kicks off at Hilton Manila, Newport World Resorts on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 September – part of an exciting week of events that also includes Manila After Dark and the IAG Academy IR Awards.
The trio of events represent IAG’s first ever “Super September” celebrations centered around a two-day summit program featuring a combination of traditional panel sessions and presentations as well as more innovative formats never before witnessed at industry trade shows in Asia.
The IAG Academy Summit will kick off next Wednesday 13 September with a Keynote Address from PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro Tengco, while the President and CEO of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), Atty Agnes Devanadera, will deliver the Keynote Address on Thursday.
Other notable speakers include Khim Oudam of the Cambodian Commercial Gambling Management Commission (CGMC), Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) Administrator and CEO Katrina Ponce Enrile, former CEO of the Victorian regulator Peter Cohen, Professor Toru Mihara from Japan’s Council for the Promotion of Integrated Resorts, the Corporate COO of leading Philippines-based junket Dowinn Group Lorraine Koo, and representatives of leading suppliers Aristocrat, IGT and Light & Wonder.
There will also be an insightful “At the Bar” session on the Philippines’ new EGM tech standards featuring representatives from PAGCOR and GLI directly involved in their creation.
The IAG Academy IR Awards, meanwhile, will see the winners announced from 20 awards categories plus three special Hall of Honor awards at a lavish Gala Dinner on the evening of Wednesday 13 September.
