Media share industry passion for Juegos Miami and gaming in Latin America

Jo Mayer, Marketing Director responsible for the Juegos Miami launch event

Jo Mayer, Marketing Director responsible for the launch event, said: “Juegos Miami has been developed to meet the specific needs of what is an increasingly important region on the gaming landscape. The response we have had from speakers, exhibitors, regulators and the C-Level influencers that it is aimed at, has been extremely positive. The brand launch is being supported by a significant communications campaign and I am delighted that so many of the world’s gaming media are playing an active role in its progression from concept to reality.”

She added: “The Latin American and Caribbean gaming market is developing at a rapid pace with some observers projecting 44% growth by 2020. Dynamic markets demand strong business events and it’s our aim to place Juegos Miami at the heart of the industry and help it to navigate a progressive and sustainable route so it can develop in a structured and well-regulated way.”

Highlighting the importance of Juegos Miami and the region in general, Charles Hiten, Chief Executive, Merkur Gaming Americas, said: “Merkur Gaming is positive that Juegos Miami will provide a really great showcase for the ever growing expansion of our brand and our teams across Latin America. This promises to be a unique event: not a trade show, not a conference, not a networking opportunity with a strong social aspect, but all of those things wrapped into one package. As a concept it is exciting and, as I said, unique: so we are very much looking forward to meeting with the invited guests and showing them and discussing with them our product offering.

“The entire Latin American continent is a gaming ‘hot spot’, you can judge that not just by the appetite for gaming entertainment but also in the ever increasing sophistication of the market, at all levels: operators and players alike.”

This view is echoed by veteran gaming industry journalist David Snook, who said: “There is currently a heavy accent on the continued development of the North American states; Mexico remains rich with potential; the countries of Central America are only just becoming apparent with possibilities; and in the South, we have the established markets of Colombia, Peru and Argentina, now rubbing shoulders with the immense promise of Brazil at last awakening. There is more action – and potential action – in the Americas, than in any other part of the globe and Juegos Miami is at the heart of it all.”

Organised jointly by Clarion Events and Urban Expositions, Juegos Miami is a totally new concept in gaming and whose foundation stones are relationship building and C-Level networking, set against a strong commercial backdrop. An invitation only event, Juegos Miami will attract industry leaders including top decision makers, the senior management teams of casino operators, legislators, major buyers and business owners. As well as featuring the latest product innovations, Juegos Miami will include a multi-stream conference programme, social and networking events and training for both land-based and online sectors of the gaming.
