aving been forced, through exceptional circumstances, away from its traditional November dates but in the familiar settings of the Costa Salguero Exhibition Center in Buenos Aires, this, the 26th edition of SAGSE, promises its usual blend of intense B2B activity infused with a special latin flavour.
In 2017 Merkur Gaming Argentina, headed by its General Manager, the charismatic industry veteran Alejandro Saraintaris, was a new company and a new name to some operators in Argentinian gaming. The past year, however, has seen the company build its team, its infrastructure and its brand reputation, resulting in widespread installations throughout the country, Rio Negro in the south right up to Jujuy, Salta and Formosa in the north. Expansion from the Merkur Gaming office has also taken place internationally, with the Merkur name now well familiar in both Uruguay and Paraguay.
At SAGSE this time around Merkur Gaming will be a Gold sponsor of the show and will, on booth 313 and from 11th to 13th September, exhibit its made in Germany models Evostar Trio and the undoubted operators’ favourite Avantgarde Trio. Heading the line-up on show will be new games that have proved themselves to be firm favourites with players, Pharaos Riches, Deep Sea Treasure, Asian Riches, Secret Area 81, Sindbad and many more.
The highlight of SAGSE 2017 was without doubt the Merkur Beer Garden that provided excellent hospitality as well as being a focal point for meetings and a place for relaxation right at the heart of the show floor. The Merkur Beer Garden returns this year and all show visitors are warmly invited to take advantage of the hospitality that will be provided as they meet old friends and meet new ones.
Along with Merkur Gaming Argentina and colleagues from across Merkur Gaming Americas will be joined by from the Gauselmann Group subsidiary companies the international cash handling experts GeWeTe and specialist in the development of B2B online casino solutions, Edict.
Commenting on the show ahead, the CEO of Merkur Gaming Americas, Charles Hiten, stated: "Despite the enforced date change that for this year puts SAGSE just weeks ahead of G2E in the calendar, Merkur Gaming expects and predicts another great show. After all, a show with a 26 editions pedigree guarantees to do things right, as do we at Merkur Gaming. The successful and widespread introduction of our products into Argentina’s gaming landscape is a tribute to our local team and, with the extensive product range that we will display, I am sure that significant new business opportunities will be opened up as Merkur Gaming once again takes a leading role at SAGSE. It is my pleasure to invite all visitors to come and meet us once again in Buenos Aires."
