Once again, SAGSE Latin America exceeded exhibitors, visitors and organizers´ aims and objectives.
We would like to thank all the manufacturers and operators who took part in SAGSE, especially to IGT, our Platinum Sponsor, and Aristocrat and JCM our Silver sponsors.
SAGSE, on its 23rd anniversary, was the international Mega Show for Latin America. This show maintains its leadership position among the 3 major shows in the world with those at Las Vegas and London. SAGSE is the largest show for Latin America and it is synonymous for the most international event in the region.
The Mega show of the region.
SAGSE Latin America @ Buenos Aires is located in the largest and most important gaming market of the region: Argentina attracts operators from the entire continent.
In this year’s SAGSE there was a slight decrease in attendance, yet participation was excellent. SAGSE exceeded its expectations, overcoming the current financial crisis.
Exhibitors concluded sales with clients from bordering countries, and took advantage of the existing demand in a latent Argentinean marketplace which projects a rebound in the next years considering that, in the very near future, presidential elections will be taking place.
Participants demonstrated their support of SAGSE with their abundant attendance at the Costa Salguero Convention Center.

SAGSE U In numbers:
This was a state-of-the-art conference where we explored the gaming system in its entirety: from the first time player, to the latest technologies. No doubt that it was the best conference ever experience in Latin America! SAGSE University is the stepping stone to a world of activities for the entire region, „An extremely valuable event in which to participate!“, commented Alan Burak.
In partnering with “SAGSE University,” JCM provided a new training where 160 international technicians gathered during 4 modules. Participants in this training had the opportunity to access all the information and materials necessary to utilize JCM products. The training was structured and presented at different times in order to accommodate all the participants. The first session took part over a breakfast provided by SAGSE, and the second during lunch, at midday. “It was a great success!” Eduardo Rozen´s commented.
As it is public knowledge, this is a particular year in which the most agile companies will take the advantage. “Crisis represents new opportunities” and many companies have understood that this is the truth. If there is something that must not be forgotten is that SAGSE IS Latin America and, it there where the promised appointment was developed for all the operators of the region.
The reached conclusion says that, as the organizers, we have the commitment of keeping on supporting all the companies and the whole sector that have made the same with us for many years.
