"We are thrilled with the success of our first event in Buenos Aires," said Alan Burak, visibly happy. "I think the support of the sponsors and the large number of operators that attended shows that this new paradigm has what it takes to become a renewed industry standard, and impose itself as a large meeting format to bring together the best of professional training, networking, and entertainment, "he added.
Yesterday's gathering included three major pillars, which explain the success of the organization. First of all, despite its large attendance, the event never lost its VIP imprint, as it could not be attended without prior invitation. This allowed the sponsors to negotiate deals with their main clients, in a professional setting.
As for the operators, there were executives from Casino Club, CityCenter Rosario, Casino Buenos Aires, Codere, Casinos Paraguayos, Trilenium, Casino Santa Fe, Ovalle (Chile), Neo Mayorazgo, Sasso, Grupo Ivisa and local bingo hall referents, such as a Group Midas, Oasis, Bingo Pilar, Golden Jack, or regulatory entities, such as Instituto de Lotería y Casinos de la Povincia de Buenos Aires, among others.
The second pillar to highlight are the companies that betted on GET In: Scientific Games, IGT, Novomatic, Aristocrat, Konami, Ainsworth and Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo, which supported the initiative with companies such as CPI , Alfastreet, Win Systems, BetConstruct, EGT, Belatra, Sielcon, Ed Roberts, Casino Technology, Goody, MadEx, GEA Sustentable, iGaming Latam Consulting, E-Gaming Group, Gaming Consulting Group, Pampa Gaming, Chem-Tronic, Bingo Golden Jack, Grupo EntreteneRSE, Arte Coin and ASAP Comercio Exterior.
Finally, the most important feature to remark was GET In BA's organization, described by several attendees as "impeccable", with a strict schedule and a very professional environment which gathered a wide range of exhibitors, and served as the perfect place for debate on corporate social responsibility and gaming rooms marketing, among others interesting topics.
"The event achieved the level we wanted for the industry: it brought together the major players of this business in Argentina, in one place and with an innovative format. We have a very strong imprint, we were able to prove this by the large number of attendees present and we believe that GET In BA marked the beginning of a new era for the industry, in which we are experiencing a major paradigm shift," concluded Burak.
The night ended with entertainment, raffles, games and a spectacular night race where six horses represented the main sponsoring companies. The podium was finally dominated by Ainsworth in the first place, accompanied by Scientific Games in second and Novomatic in third place.
Buenos Aires witnessed yesterday an innovative way of gathering for the industry, a "new paradigm" in the words of its organizers, which perfectly complements the sector's traditional tradeshows and showrooms carried out by companies, in terms of attendance and quality.
