Every year, the EGR B2B Awards is held to pay tribute to the best e-gaming service providers and B2B operators of the year. It’s one of the highlight events of the industry where it not only recognizes some of the best companies in the online gaming industry, but also allows a lot of these companies to rub elbows with their contemporaries, all in the framework of an awards show.
2012 marks the third year of the EGR B2B Awards with the event being held last night, May 10, in the Atrium at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The event, as you can expect, was full of industry professionals – including our very own Becky Liggero – a lot of whom mingled, chatted, and talked shop about the year that was and the year moving forward. From the cocktail reception to the open bar at the beginning of the night, to the 3-course dinner and the special, albeit amusing, ventriloquist performance, all the way to the awards ceremony, the 2012 EGR B2B Awards was definitely one for the books.
And as for the winners and all the other nominees in their respective categories, we at CalvinAyre.com raise our glasses to all of you for a job well done in 2011. Just like all our peers in the business, we look forward to a bigger and better 2012, one wherein we take this industry to never-before-reached levels.
