Marking over four years of successful cooperation, leading B2B gaming industry media brands Inside Asian Gaming and CDC Gaming Reports are pleased to announce the renewal and expansion of their strategic partnership, first formed in March 2019.

Watch Andrew and Cory discuss G2E, the partnership, and more.

Comprehensively covering the gaming industry in North America and Asia-Pacific respectively, CDC Gaming Reports and Inside Asian Gaming have seen engagement between each other’s brands increase as the two companies continue to collaborate in key areas of operation.

Vice Chairman and CEO of Inside Asian Gaming Andrew W Scott said, “We first entered into the strategic partnership with CDC Gaming Reports back in March 2019, taking a bit of a wait-and-see attitude. Four years later, we’re delighted with the partnership, and I can say with absolute certainty that it has been of substantial value to both companies.

“We had no hesitation in expanding the agreement. Both media companies have similar values, particularly a commitment to quality original source journalism with fair and accurate reporting and an abhorrence of plagiarism. Both companies have a passion for the industry and love to build their respective networks of personal connections with industry executives. Finally, Cory and his team at CDC are a pleasure to work with. We look forward to continuing the partnership for many years to come.”

CDC Gaming Reports Publisher Cory Roberts said, “We were treading a new industry path back in 2019 with our one-of-a-kind strategic partnership. Media companies often have a ‘friendly competitiveness’ but to turn that into ‘friendly cooperation that makes sense business-wise’ was a risk that paid off. We quickly realized our collective power for betterment of the industry and our companies: better tradeshow coverage, cohesively informing our audience of world gaming news, and the stronger ability to take down plagiarism (sadly, on multiple occasions). Andrew has built a fantastic team over at IAG that we are keen to sustain and expand our long-term collaboration with.”
