Industry meets at Enada Spring 2010 to discuss Italy’s VLT market

Leaders to discuss the regulation, scope and opportunities associated with Video Lottery Terminals

London 06, 2010 – As Italy’s new VLT gaming market looks poised to become the largest VLT market in Europe, regulatory events agency Awedacity has announced that it is teaming with gaming exhibition leader, ENADA, to deliver a landmark forum examining the regulatory, technical and operational implications associated with this new market.

The one-day event, “VLTs in Italy” comes at a critical time where there is still uncertainty about entry into the market, technical specifications and competition from point-of-sale ‘Totems’ featuring poker and online casino games.

The impending changes and impact on the industry make industry dialogue essential, according to Awedacity’s director Julie Garvin. “VLTs in Italy will provide delegates with a full understanding of the latest regulatory and technical developments, along with emerging opportunities worth considering. This is a unique opportunity to have this discussion as part of the larger Enada Spring 2010 Show, held at Rimini Expo Centre.”

With Italian and other European operators jostling for a share of the action from new and lucrative products to be made available towards the beginning of spring 2010, the schedule for the introduction of new VLTs is finally becoming clear. This very timely gathering will provide strategic and tactical insight for both Italian and international operators wanting to enter into or better understand this booming market.

The ‘high-level’ event will also consider questions of consumer protection and public safety, how server based gaming works and the techniques required when developing games on a new platform. It will outline the crucial role of the concessionaires and with concessions up for renewal in 2010, what it will look like for established players and new entrants keen on becoming the operators of the future.

Ms Garvin says, “Whether you work for one of the concessionaries or you are looking to supply your gaming platform to them; whether you produce game software that runs on specific platforms or used to develop games for Comma 6a; whether you have already obtained a license to install VLTs in your shop or are looking to apply for one, this is the one gathering that it would not pay to miss.”

The exclusive event will be held at Rimini Expo Centre, Italy on the 19 March, 2010. Further details about the conference are available at Delegates can also save €100 if they book before 12 February 2010.
