he brands, both of which are wholly owned subsidiaries of the US end-to-end gaming solutions provider Scientific Games Corporation, will have senior representation on the show floor with The Global Draw’s Chairman and CEO, Steve Frater; Managing Director, Phil Horne; Director of International Business Development, Neil Moir; and Head of Content Rick Mountney in attendance alongside Games Media’s Managing Director, Andrew Ludlow; Development Director, Steve Murray; and Director of Sales, Ian Shreeve.
Expanding on their support for the show, The Global Draw’s Managing Director Phil Horne said: “IGE is a perfect opportunity for networking at all levels across various markets hence the number of senior representatives from our business who will be present.
“Our key objectives from attending the exhibition are to network with existing customers and to establish new business opportunities. The Global Draw’s industry leading cabinets and gaming content are well established in UK betting shops and can be easily transferred to international markets in a variety of gaming venues. Our aim is to use the uniquely international character of IGE, which has representatives from over 100 nations, to extend the global reach of our products.”
Andrew Ludlow, Managing Director of Games Media, added: “We want visitors to our stand to see the genuine progress digital gaming has made in the pub industry, including improvements to the choice of gaming content, menu design, visual appeal of the cabinets and the efforts to maximise new growth opportunities such as the arrival of us$ 1.67 stake and us$ 117 jackpot levels on Category C machines in June 2009.”
Julian Graves, Managing Director of IGE organisers Clarion Gaming, believes that the commitment shown by an array of exhibitors including The Global Draw and Games Media reflects positively on the credibility and reputation of the exhibition. He explained: “Buyers from throughout the world attend IGE/ATEI secure in the knowledge that they will have access to the originators of innovative products which will make a difference to their businesses. It is clear that the major companies such as Scientific Games Corporation, which has annual revenues approaching us$ 1 billion and a worldwide staff of 5,500 people, are backing IGE.
