Following their time in Lima, attending meetings at the Peru Gaming Show, the GAT Expo & Esports marketing and sales team traveled to Brazil and, after several days of meetings with key figures from communications agencies, online gaming legal consultants, and casinos, announced the decision to hold GAT Caribe Cancun and GAT eSports Sao Paulo, with a week's difference between the two events in August 2025.

José Aníbal Aguirre said: "We are embarking on a new project that has two sides and an extraordinary perspective. The meetings held in Sao Paulo conclude today in an unexpected and providential way.

"The approval of the gambling law in the Constitution, Justice and Citizenship Committee of the Brazilian Senate has awakened such enthusiasm in the advisors that we contacted to support us in a betting event on esports for those over 18 years old, in this country. This has encouraged us to go further, proposing the realization of GAT eSports Sao Paulo, an event focused exclusively on the e-sports industry and its regulation, with a view to responsible gaming in this new generation of bettors."

The issue has been submitted to the presidency of AIEJA (the Association of Permit Holders, Operators and Suppliers of the Entertainment and Gambling Industry in Mexico) and the idea of holding both events in consecutive weeks, one in Sao Paulo and the other in Cancun, has been welcomed by Miguel Angel Ochoa who informs us that, just yesterday, the board of directors of AIEJA resolved to move the International Gaming Convention in 2025, which has always been held in CDMX in March, to August in Cancun.

"Therefore, GAT Caribe Cancun is integrated and incorporated to the final purpose which is to achieve a productive Business Roundtrip between the two countries, under the brand GAT Expo & Esports," he emphasized.

Gaming & Technology Expo has been working on an expansion process that in the last three years has included GAT events in the Dominican Republic, in addition to GAT Showcase Bogota and the traditional annual fair held in Cartagena since 25 years ago. The final 2024 outreach will be GAT Caribe Cancun, on November 26-28 with the full support of Mexico's AIEJA. In 2025, the final dates for GAT Expo Cartagena are April 28, 29 and 30.

The great novelty will then be the GAT Expo events in August next year in Cancun and Sao Paulo, in two consecutive weeks to facilitate access to international travelers to participate promptly in these two business meetings in Mexico and Brazil, opening great possibilities for investors, suppliers, and operators of online and retail eSports betting, the new generation.
