irst event of its kind brings together regulators, advisors, operators, manufacturers, concessionaires and testing labs to discuss the opportunities of the Italian VLT market.
Armando Iaccarino, the Italian State Monopolies Agency (AAMS) Official Director and Daniela Pompei, Manager, SOGEI have both been confirmed as speakers by the conference organisers, Awedacity.
They will join leading advisors, operators, manufacturers, concessionaires, testing labs and lawyers on the conference panel, who will shed light on the questions that still remain immediately prior to the operationalization of this lucrative market.
Quirino Mancini, Partner at law firm Sinisi Ceschini Mancini, who is also speaking at the event said: "I am delighted to learn that the conference organisers have now confirmed two very prominent panellists such as Dr Armando Iaccarino and Mrs Daniela Pompei. They are both extremely involved in the regulatory and technical process concerning the introduction of VLTs in Italy and will no doubt be adding lots of value to the conference debate. On top of that, to the best of my knowledge this is the first event ever entirely dedicated to VLTs so both timing and contents couldn't be any better. I do expect the conference room to be packed with people"
Awedacity Director, Ms Julie Garvin said: “With estimates that between 49,000 to 65,000 machines could enter the country in the short space of 12 months, it’s vital that the industry is armed with all the information it needs to succeed. We are delighted to have Dr Armando Iaccarino and Mrs Daniela Pompei on board. Their contributions, alongside the market players will be significant. We believe this will be a landmark event for the Italian market.”
Filippo Ferri, Director of Operations – Italy at Gaming Labs International (GLI), says the stakes are high: “The Italian regulations that endeavour to introduce state of the art server-based technology in the country, also requires most manufacturers to accelerate the development of their highest end products, while at the same time tailoring it to the requirements of the Italian gaming board. The investment here is not insignificant, and participants need to enter the market well informed and with eyes wide open. To have the regulators present at this event to help inform the market is invaluable.”
The event, VLTs in Italy, is being run in conjunction with this month’s ENADA event in Rimini, Italy on 19 March. (www.italyvltconference.com).
