rtiz Gaming-EIBE Games, another major figure in the country, will have the second-largest space. With over 500 sqm, their popular video-bingo machines will be joined by exciting new lines for 2012.
Third place in the ranking of stand sizes will be held by Recreativos Franco, strongly committed to the Mexican market, where the Spanish company is investing heavily.
Other companies that have chosen to consolidate their commitment to Mexico and hold large stands at ELA include FBM Gaming, Shock Machine, Amusgo, Bemex-Metronia, Zest Gaming-Ludicus and Shuffle Master.
According to ELA managing director Pablo G. Jara, “Once more, a series of US slots manufacturers have decided not to take part at ELA. The excuse put forward by some does not stand up: there are too many fairs in Latin America. Latin America has exactly 6 trade events, including ELA. Of these, only ours and the Buenos Aires exhibition are of any importance, while in the US almost 50 gaming events are held yearly. I believe that they are uncomfortable with the strong competition that ELA means for certain US interests, though not, fortunately, all of them".
One of the characteristics of this year’s show is that many firms have chosen to increase their exhibition space considerably over last year.
The complete list of exhibitors is available at: www.expoazar.com/2012/plano_en.php
To date, with three months yet to go before doors open at ELA 2012, very little space remains available.
The number and quality of the exhibitors who have promised to attend once more endorse ELA as the key gaming fair for Mexico, Central America, the Andean Region and the Southern Cone – indeed for all of Latin America.
