Gaming & Technology Expo confirms the second version of GAT Caribe, an event that will take place on June 9 and 10, 2022, at The Westin Puntacana Resort & Club. Participants in the organizer’s first experience in the Dominican Republic in November of the previous year, expressed their desire and motivation to run the event again, given its productivity and importance in bringing together the local industry and offering visitors and operators, technological updates, academic knowledge and business and regulatory perspectives in the region.
“GAT Caribe 2022 is carried out thanks to the support of the Asociación Dominicana de Casinos de Juegos and Asociación Nacional de Bancas Deportivas, who have made their contributions to the construction of the contents suggested by the organization and are calling all their affiliates to be present in our programming. GAT Caribe offers all Dominican industry players a neutral space for annual meetings with the international sector and we hope that this will continue to be the mission in the coming years,” said José Aníbal Aguirre, CEO of 3A Producciones, the company that has been organizing GAT Expo for 23 years.
Dominican Republic Chamber of Deputies working table
The great novelty in GAT Caribe 2022 is the holding, also in The Westin Puntacana, of a work table in which the Chamber of Deputies and business sectors will participate, who expect to debate in all its extension the draft bill that reforms the current regulation of gambling in the country. Congressman Luis Henriquez of the Province of Santo Domingo, seeks to put the bill again under consideration and GAT Caribe will be the opportunity to make a detailed presentation of the initiative and a debate which will lead to the first agreements for its processing in the National Congress.
