he big news for FADJA 2017 was its new venue. What were the benefits of the relocation? How would you assess the show on the overall?
The relocation of this year’s FADJA was definitely a challenge for us. However, the show in general and our booth in particular were well visited. We introduced some of our latest novelties to the market – the Premier Curved cabinets and the jackpot systems 3 Happy Hits, Diamond Life and Lady’s Cards, the multiplayer division’s Luxury roulette touch table, the STORK terminal, and multitude different multigames, including the EGT Interactive online-based titles. We were able to meet with many new operators, so our overall assesment of the exhibition is that it was successful for us.
How was this past year, from FADJA 2016 to date for the Colombian gaming industry? What are the expectations for the near term following your participation in the trade show?
The industry is growing at a high pace and new additions to the gaming floors are at a high demand, encouraging casino operators to diversify their offering. EGT has a lot to offer in this respect, presenting nonparallel products to the fast-growing Colombian market.
Several major casino operators such as Chile’s Sun Dreams are eyeing Colombia for new casino. What are the opportunities present there for you?
Some of the major local operators are already in contact with us, as we are currently in the process of installing our products on their floors. The reputation we have established as a manufacturer and a partner and our proven products are among the key factors EGT to be considered a reliable supplier for the Colombian gaming industry.
