GAT Virtual Expo presents news and developments in its contents

(Colombia).- The organizers of the virtual gaming fair, focused on Latin American markets, whose main components are Exhibition Booths, Workshops by Totally Gaming Academy, Corporate Conferences and Networking events, have informed that in one of the interactive auditoriums offered by the VirtWay platform, a forum will take place on the adaptation and innovation needed to overcome the current restrictions.

Forum: The 'New Normal' in the Gaming Industry

Specialists and the public will analyze and debate the process of opening casinos in the region, the changes imposed by the biosecurity protocols, as well as the strengthening of virtual commercial relations, which are unavoidable as a result of this global health crisis. The call is mainly addressed to land-based gaming operators and to companies that organize on-site fairs to share points of view on the future of the meetings industry.

"While the universal vaccine that will definitively eradicate Covid-19 arrives, the economies of the world will undergo processes of gradual opening, to which we must obligatorily adapt our businesses. The issue concerns both the operation of land-based games and the meeting industry. Hence the importance of this forum that will highlight the limitations and opportunities of the moment. It seems to me that for the organizers of fairs and congresses of the gaming industry, the migration towards hybrid events is a subject of careful analysis, given the slow recovery of business tourism and international travels. Likewise, gaming multinationals, large and medium companies, will be able to learn in the forum about the strengths of virtual platforms to carry out their own corporate events or those aimed at a specific audience," says José Aníbal Aguirre, CEO of 3A Producciones, organizer of GAT Virtual Expo.

New Sponsor of GAT Virtual Expo

Altenar has confirmed its participation as Silver Sponsor of the fair that will take place from 13 to 15 October. The firm, which currently has B2B business in several Latin American countries such as Colombia, Peru, Brazil and Mexico, will exhibit its flags and make use of interactive muppies on the platform where Gaming & Technology Virtual Expo will take place. The company has joined the sponsors of the fair, accompanying BetConstruct who is a Gold Sponsor.

In the next few days, sponsors and new exhibitors will be announced in addition to Rivalo, Alfastreet, Aruze and BetConstruct.

Within the networking spaces of the platform, GAT Virtual Expo prepares several Business Rounds in which consultancy will be provided for those interested in doing business in particular countries of the region. Each table will be attended by highly qualified professionals with in-depth knowledge of the legislation and the market they represent.
