To find out the opinions of the participants at the annual fair dedicated to the gambling industry, Entertainment Arena Expo 2019, I asked the same question to all interviewees.
The question was:
What has Entertainment Arena Expo 2019 represented to you and the company you represent?
Here are the answers of those present:
Valentin Adrian Georgescu – CEO, NOVOMATIC Romania
Every year, EAE means teamwork for us, reaffirming the position of market leaders and the global standard NOVOMATIC “Winning Technology”.
Our focus is to bring, in addition to the novelties offered by the launched gaming equipment, innovative ideas, so that our clients and visitors enjoy a pleasant and interactive environment. “We continue to innovate for your success”, and this year’s record sales showed us that we were better than previous years, and the stand was appreciated by all our visitors.
Dan Alexandru Ghita – President, ROMBET
For the Rombet Association, this year’s edition of Entertainment Arena Expo confirmed a trend of maturity and slowdown in the recent years of the offline gambling market – because the exhibitors have mainly addressed the offline industry. Compared to the editions of previous years, although there is certainly interest in the market compared to the news on all the business segments that were present at the exhibition (slots, bets, computer systems, payment solutions, platforms, franchisors, associations, etc.), traffic in the frame of the event was slightly smaller. Rombet was, as every year, present and available to its members, so for us the event was a success, being an opportunity to contact in person with many of our members who came to the exhibition.
Liviu Popovici, Country Sales Representative, Media System Technologies
The presence of MST (Media System Technologies) at this year’s edition of Entertainment Arena Expo meant, besides the good opportunity to make us known in Romania, a confirmation of the special interest and the opening of the betting companies for our products. We are talking about a company recently entered the Romanian market, which was recently licensed by ONJN for offering specialized software products and which is distinguished by their uniqueness and innovation. I am referring in particular to the full service betting platform, which also includes risk management for retail and online betting, which offers the possibility of betting on horse and dog races around the world, from Europe to Australia, from America to Asia. and Africa. Basically you can bet 24/7, 365 days a year. The betting platform can be used both in stand-alone version and integrated in the organizer betting platform. In addition to the software solutions MST presented to EArena and several state-of-the-art hardware solutions for independent and dependent betting terminals. These features have impressed and generated real interest among visitors. There were three productive days in which we fully realized and at the end of which we were designated by the organizers as having the most beautiful stand, which makes us optimistic and confident. From my point of view, the experience of MST brings me a new challenge that I look at with confidence given the professionalism, the innovative, progressive spirit and the extraordinary team that define this company. Although in Romania the culture of horse racing has greatly diminished, in recent years we have seen that there is potential, and among what the MST has set out to develop in Romania is the revival of the equestrian phenomenon. As I said, we are optimistic and think of organic and sustainable development. Tenacity, flexibility, innovation, dedication and customer focus are our main strengths.
Gyula Csortan – General Manager, Alfastreet Trade
As a representative of Alfastreet, one of the companies present in all editions of the EAE, I particularly appreciate this event and consider it the most important in the national and regional annual calendar. It is no longer a secret that technology is evolving very fast and that gambling applications are following this pace. At EAE we have the opportunity to meet with our current and potential customers, to find out the news on the Romanian market and to get a clear picture of the current level and the trends on the market.
Cristina Georgescu – Owner, Power of Scent
The participation of the Power of Scent brand in the EAE proved to be the ideal opportunity to present the products and services of potential clients, along with the most renowned professionals in the gambling industry. Flavor marketing is an increasingly appreciated strategy by every business, so we thank all those who visited us and tested the quality of our products and because they took advantage of the specially prepared offers.
Alin Iliescu – PR & Communication Manager, ROMSLOT
For the ROMSLOT team, Entertainment Arena Expo 2019 was, as in previous editions, one of the benchmark events of the year in the gambling industry. First of all, it represented an excellent opportunity for communication, especially due to the events organized within the exhibition – here we are talking about communication in three directions: within the industry (between associations, producers and operators), between industry representatives and visitors, between representatives industry and authorities. At the same time, it was an excellent opportunity to debate and evaluate the socio-political context in which the gambling industry is located, as well as the challenges that this sector will face in the coming year. Last but not least, we notice the impeccable organization and congratulate the organizers for their efforts!
Cristian Roman – Managing Partner, Get’s Bet
Entertainment Arena Expo 2019, the only gambling exhibition in the country, represents for us the opportunity to exhibit every year, the offer of new products specially designed to satisfy any partner.
Get’s Bet, a company with 100% Romanian capital, offers commission to partners in all 4 directions: retail, online, terminals and slot machines.
We thank all the partners who stayed with us and not least, those who joined us this year and assure us that we will come with news and next year.
Dragos Buriu – CEO & Founder, NEWTON Slots
Like in every year, Entertainment Arena Expo 2019 remains a landmark event on a regional level, and manages to attract some of the most renowned gambling producers and service providers. And as every time, NEWTON was present with one of the largest stands where we met during the 3 days of the exhibition with existing partners and future clients.
It was a great opportunity to launch new products on the market, in addition to those that established our position as market leader in our segment in front of thousands of visitors who crossed the threshold of our stand.
We had the premiere of the Cash Dispenser, a new state- of-the-art device that enhances the security of the money and avoids fraud, in which we have great confidence that it will rise to the expectations of the most demanding operators.
On this occasion, we reconfirmed that NEWTON is a trusted partner, constantly innovating and investing in the development and improvement of solutions, both software and hardware, whose sole purpose is to increase revenues and streamline the operations of our partners, thus helping them become much more profitable.
We will continue to allocate resources to differentiate ourselves and attend the Entertainment Arena Expo next year, convinced by the importance of such an event, and our presence as an exhibitor.
Andrei Frimescu – Marketing & PR Manager, Game World Romania
EAE is the regional expression of global events in the casino industry such as ICE London and G2E Las Vegas. As a result, it is a clear picture of the current state of play in the field of gambling in Romania and of the trends in this market. Last but not least, it is one of the best networking and information opportunities and for the industry one of the opportunities to communicate positive news and relevant information through the media.
