GAT Showcase Bogota, a winning format

Colombia has a dynamic market of supply and demand for slot machines and equipment for physical casinos, with a sustained growth in the number of legal gaming operations throughout the national territory.

The sustained growth of land-based and online gaming in the region determines the importance of GAT Showcase Bogota, an event to be held on September 6th of this year, facilitating the sale and acquisition of new machines to traditional and new interested customers, satisfying the demands of a public loyal to legal gaming and eager for novelties in the last four months of the year.

The gaming industry in Colombia and Latin America has a special and unavoidable appointment at GAT Showcase Bogota, a commercial meeting that invites leading manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of equipment for casinos, medium and small gaming halls to book and plan their participation as exhibitors in stands, sponsors in different categories or visiting buyers. The Sheraton Bogota Hotel will be a great exhibition hall with the latest advances and designs in slot machines, roulettes and amazing portfolios in virtual and online games.

Jose Anibal Aguirre notes: “The showroom in Bogota is a big hit; its innovative and practical format with turnkey stands, catering services and a favorable budget for exhibitors makes it very attractive. It is a unique day of exhibition and business for Colombian operators and foreign companies with operations or projects in the Latin American and Caribbean markets, attended by C-level executives. We are planning to extend the exhibition hours until 19:00 at the express request of the participants”.

Exhibitors: Winsystems, EGT, IGT, Interblock, Merkur, Novomatic, Amusnet y BetConstruct

Relevant News GAT 2024 Events

GAT Showcase Santo Domingo

The most relevant news is that the event, which has been held in Punta Cana in June for the last three years, will be moved to Santo Domingo in September, taking into account the general elections in the Dominican Republic that will mark a change of government in the middle of the year. This news is complemented by the fact that CIBELAE, Corporación Iberoamericana de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, is actively participating in GAT Showcase Santo Domingo, holding a congress that will focus on the situation and development of lotteries, as well as the control of illegality. The event is supported by the Dominican Association of Gaming Casinos ADCJ and the National Association of Sports Banks. In addition to the CIBELAE Congress, there will be presentations on regulatory issues and market updates in the Caribbean and Antilles.

GAT Caribe Cancun

For the first time, GAT will close its annual calendar in Mexico, celebrating GAT Caribe Cancun, given the size of the market, the opportunities that this nation offers to the gaming industry and the peak of online betting throughout the territory, which is expected to grow by 70% in the next three years. 

The main operators in the sector are betting on an in-depth reform of the rules that govern the matter in the country, which must be adapted to the conditions imposed by technology in this industry. This is the opinion of Miguel Angel Ochoa, president of AIEJA, the Association of Licensors, Operators and Suppliers of the Entertainment and Gaming Industry.

GAT Caribe Cancun arrives with the full support of AIEJA, which has decided to hold its year-end General Assembly on November 26th, as a prelude to the Academic Conferences and Exhibition Stands on November 27th and 28th at the Cancun Center. The paradisiacal scenery, beaches and fun that Cancun offers will be part of the strengthening of the MICE industry that GAT promotes in Latin America.

GAT’s Marketing Department is responding to numerous requests for commercial offers to participate in its trade shows in Cartagena, Bogota, Santo Domingo and Cancun.
