Gaming elites from the Pan-Latin America and Caribbean are coming together this week to plot the industry’s future at the 2017 edition of Juegos Miami.
Now on its second year, Juegos Miami will return to The Biltmore in Miami from May 31 to June 2, bringing together the region’s innovators, regulators and industry visionaries to talk about the future development of gaming in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Event organizer Clarion Gaming said representatives from 44 nations have registered to attend the invite-only, C-level event.
“There’s a huge appetite for Juegos Miami amongst the C-Level industry opinion formers who will be in attendance as well as the senior management of the 40 commercial organizations which have a stand, showroom or sponsorship presence in Miami,” said Kate Chambers, managing director of Clarion Gaming.
In an interview with CalvinAyre.com’s Becky Liggero, Chambers described the first edition of Juegos Miami as a “historic event in the development of the LatAm and Caribbean gaming industry.”
Juegos Miami, however, is setting out to prove that it’s not just a commercial forum. For this year, the three-day event is also bringing in many of the region’s influential trade associations and representatives, including CIBELAE (Corporación Iberoamericana de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado); FECOLJUEGOS (Colombian federation of casinos and bingos), CONAJZAR (Commission nacional de juegos de azar), ABLE (Brazilian State lotteries Association), Magocom/BNL, and FECEAZAR (Federación Colombiana de Empresarios de Juegos de Azar).
“When we spoke with gaming stakeholders in the region, the desire for a robust and relevant learning program consistently featured in the top two requirements of each and every person that we canvassed,” Chambers told CalvinAyre.com. “It’s clear that emerging and developing markets are hungry for knowledge, the opportunity to learn and gain insight from the experience of operators, regulators and thought leaders in more mature markets.”
