EAG Expo - A Great Place To Do Business

The EAG is, as the name would suggest, primarily aimed at the gaming machine market, and that's what makes up the vast majority of the exhibitors, "fruit" machines, arcade games, pinball, and a plethora of companies who make the technology that fits inside them. However, there's room and flexibility to accommodate other industries, and so, as there seems to be no expo specifically targeted for our industry, each year, a handful of pool/billiard businesses descend on London for a bit of networking and to showcase the newest product offerings and latest inventions.

This year's event featured stands from SAM Leisure, Suzo Happ, Heywood Pool & Snooker (Supreme), Valley Dynamo, a Czech cloth manufacturer call Tool Billiard, and e-Service - a spares and repair company, as well as several big name walk-in visitors from home and abroad.
