how Director Kate Chambers has been encouraged by both the swift take-up as well as the diversity of gaming companies who are supporting the exhibition. She noted: “This is the fastest take-up of space in the history of the exhibition. Visitors to the show in January will be presented with an inspiring 20,000-plus square meters of innovation covering the entire gaming landscape of betting, remote, casino, mobile, street, lottery and bingo sectors.
She added: “Our two USPs remain the sheer breadth of the total gaming experience that’s available to visitors and the internationalism of the exhibition which regularly attracts visitors from over 100 countries. No other event comes anywhere near IGE in either of these respects and explains why the show is such a landmark event in the international gaming calendar.”
Outside of the UK, the most represented nation on the show floor is Malta (16 exhibitors), followed by the United States (12), Italy, Slovenia and Taiwan (10 each) and Austria (nine). Germany and the Netherlands are each represented by eight exhibitors, Belgium seven, five from both Canada and Sweden, four from Spain, three from each of Czech Republic, Gibraltar, Latvia and Serbia and two each from Bulgaria, Japan, Poland and Switzerland.
The remaining exhibitors having confirmed their IGE 2011 stand space are drawn from Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Channel Islands, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Panama, Romania, Russia, South Africa and South Korea.
