Regarding the participation of Fecoljuegos, its President, Evert Montero Cárdenas, said: "Face-to-face meetings are extremely powerful. Strategic allies and suppliers need to be connected in a business environment. We see GAT Expo as an important showcase for entrepreneurs and this time we have the opportunity to enjoy the fair in Colombia as has been traditional every year; this, besides being an event awaited by the industry, has served as a thermometer to measure current issues and specific interest of the sector.
For this reason, within the framework of this event we will hold our XXI Ordinary General Assembly. In addition, Fecoljuegos proposed that GAT Cartagena should host a Business Roundtable with the participation of renowned law firms in Latin America and Europe, a business roundtable that we are leading together with our legal advisory office V&I Consultores.
We have also proposed two important lectures: "Advertising of games of chance: Regulation or self-regulation? Experience Spain - Colombia" and "Modernization of the regulation of Games of Chance" attending to the interest of the industry on these topics.
We also know that a great part of the industry will be participating and we have knowledge that many international companies will be present; this is fundamental in the development of the operation due to the updating of topics and alliances that are constituted there".
International Business and Regulatory Roundtable
Tatiana Vásquez, Managing Partner of V&I Consultores, comments: "Leading attorneys from Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Spain and Colombia will be participating in the event to discuss current regulations and the prospects of new regulations in their countries and in the region. Those who wish to attend should make an appointment to define the legal team that will address their concerns. This academic event will take place on March 16, between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm at a stand located in the online exhibition area in the Claustro de las Ánimas.
