Entertainment Arena Expo at the 14th edition in technical data
After the traditional annual fair of the gambling industry in our country ended, we spoke with Anton Vlad, the organizer of the event and general director of EXPO 24.
How was the 14th edition of the Entertainment Arena Expo?
The 14th year of Entertainment Arena Expo was a good year, especially since after the break period; visitors and exhibitors were in comparatively similar numbers to previous editions.
In terms of surface area occupied, how did the recently concluded edition compare to the others?
The gross display area was 7,682 square meters. This is where our precaution of not expanding the exhibition over a larger area came into play, given the two-year break caused by the pandemic. However, we could have had an extended area, this year leaving out 6 exhibitors that totaled a number of 550 additional net square meters.
Regarding the exhibitors, how was their number compared to the past editions?
51 exhibitors this year, compared to 56 from the 2019 edition. But taking into account the above, there was demand for a minimum number similar to the previous edition.
Statistically, how many exhibitors were from the online gambling industry?
It is harder to estimate, considering that many exhibitors have both land base and online solutions. If we are to accumulate, it turns out that about half offer solutions for online.
If we talk about the number of visitors of this edition, how is their number compared to previous editions?
Similar to previous editions. This year there were 2049 unique visitors. Taking into account that many of them visit the exhibition for at least two days, we can estimate a total of 3000+ visitors.
What can you tell us as general considerations, now at the end of the event?
With the conclusions of this year’s edition, the 15th year of the EAE, which will take place between September 5 and 7, 2023, will return to the surface and the configuration before the pandemic break.
Thank you and good luck!
