GGE Acquires Asian Gaming Expo

13 June 2006

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Global Gaming Expo (G2E), a joint
venture of the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions,
today announced its acquisition of the Asian Gaming Expo from the
Australasian Gaming Machine Manufacturers Association (AGMMA). The Asian
Gaming Expo, which currently is comprised of the largest casino gaming
equipment trade exhibition in the Asian region and the Asian Gaming Expo
Conference, will be renamed G2E Asia and will feature a unique perspective
on the latest trends within the growing Asian gaming market.

G2E, the brand's flagship trade show and conference event held annually
in Las Vegas, attracted more than 26,000 people last year, including more
than 4,600 international participants. Through G2E Asia, G2E is expanding
its role as a global resource for the international gaming community and
adding further depth to its established portfolio of premier global gaming
events.

"With Singapore's decision last year to legalize casinos and Macau's
gaming operations flourishing, Asian gaming markets are playing a larger
role in the global gaming landscape," said Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr.,
president and CEO of the AGA. "As the leading resource for the worldwide
gaming industry, G2E is creating G2E Asia to highlight the remarkable
growth in the Asian gaming markets and bring the unbeatable quality and
value of the G2E experience to an even larger audience."

G2E announced the acquisition during the 2006 Asian Gaming Expo,
scheduled for June 13-14, 2006, and will assume ownership immediately
following the event. G2E Asia is set to debut June 12-13, 2007 at the Macau
Tower. The 2008 event will be held at The Venetian Macao, a new mega-resort
property scheduled to open next year.
