rganizers of Gaming & Technology (GAT) Virtual Expo, which will take place on October 13-15, announced that they have decided to centralize the contents of the academic and training agenda. The sessions will be held in the main auditorium of the VirtWay platform with a capacity to simultaneously accommodate 500 people, represented by individualized avatars.
The entire academic agenda, which includes TED-type conferences, an introduction to the land-based, online and marketing courses of Totally Gaming Academy, a panel on the future of the face-to-face fairs, and the "The New Normal in the Gaming Industry" forum will be available to those who have registered their virtual identity to access the platform.
In order to participate in the forum, a special invitation has been sent to federations and associations of operators in Latin America, who in turn will call on their members to be part of the different discussion panels. Presidents and directors of these trade bodies will share their experiences about the closing of casinos and the market's reaction to the gradual reopening of gaming halls in their countries. This call has been addressed in Peru to Sonaja, Apeja, COT, Asdaga, Apadela and Soju, who will be joined by Manuel San Román Benavente, Director of Casinos of Mincetur. From Panama, Asaja and Apojuegos were invited. As spokespersons of gaming in the Caribbean, the Dominican Association of Casinos of Game ADCJ was summoned. For Brazil, the presence of ABRABINCS, LA CAIXA, and FEBRABINGO is expected.
Furthermore, AIEJA and APJSAC said the Mexican industry has shown great interest to be speakers at this event that will debate the current state of gaming in the region. In Argentina, Cibelae, Aleara, Alaja and ALEA have been called.
The Colombian associations Asojuegos, Fecoljuegos, Cornazar, Fedelco and Camazar will be in the front line, accompanied by Juan B. Pérez Hidalgo, President of Coljuegos, the regulatory gaming authority, with whom they have worked together with the National Government to face the restrictive measures imposed by the current health situation.

Six interactive stand models with links to documents and exhibitor websites are available to companies that wish to reconnect with their clients and expand their business scope with new developments, taking the option to take leading roles in GAT Virtual Expo 2020.
José Aníbal Aguirre, CEO of 3A Producciones, referred to the organization process of the event: "Even though we have always worked in the digital field, it has been a challenge to turn a physical fair into a virtual one, very close to a real commercial meeting. After the postponement of GAT in Cartagena until next year, we couldn't sit back and do nothing. I would like to thank Penta Marketing for the trust they have placed in us and highlight the unconditional support of our strategic allie. They have been working side by side with the 3A team to achieve a call for proposals that brings together more than 4000 operators and industry executives, the result of contacts and public relations that have been the product of decades of work. We are initiating a final stage of commercialization through telemarketing. We want everyone, big and small members of the great gaming family in and for Latin America, to have a place in GAT Virtual Expo 2020".
Organizers said that the avatars are for sale and can be acquired through payment gateway at the official website.
