Gaming & Technology Expo bets again on Punta Cana

June 6, 2022

The Westin Puntacana Resort & Club will dress up to welcome the region's gaming industry on June 8, 9 and 10.

The Dominican Republic is currently undergoing a regulatory updating process that has not been seen for a decade. Hence the interest aroused by the discussion on one of the draft bills that, within the framework of GAT Caribe, will be led by Congressman Luis Henríquez, on Thursday morning, June 9, accompanied by a group of legislators from the National Congress, casino businessmen and sports banking operators.

José Aníbal Aguirre, General Director of GAT Expo, commented: "The support of the Dominican Casino Association and the National Sports Banking Association has been decisive in guaranteeing the presence of the most renowned operators in the country. In addition to the discussion with representatives of the Chamber of Deputies and businessmen, I would like to highlight the participation of these associations in the Compliance Workshop that we will hold as the closing event of the academic agenda, on the afternoon of Friday, June 10. The workshop on this very sensitive topic in organizations will provide attendees with tools to identify operational and legal risks, establishing internal management, control and reaction mechanisms. I am especially pleased that GAT is an open and impartial showcase, plural for all segments of gaming, including the state sector and the private sector. This is how the Dominican industry has understood it. I am also grateful for the invaluable collaboration of V&I Legal Consultants, Fecoljuegos and Cornazar in this version of GAT Caribe".  

Conferences and panels will allow to share with local entrepreneurs the successes and difficulties of the regulation of online gaming in Colombia and to know directly the differences and successful business models applied in different gaming verticals by DR operators.
