"After an exhaustive market analysis and evaluation, it is clear that Jamaica is emerging as an important new market in the Caribbean region's gaming industry. Having the Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit in Montego Bay provides the opportunity to better understand the country potential of Jamaica, learn about the developments in the Caribbean's gaming industry, and forge new partnerships between the region's operators and global service providers," said Elizabeth Leiva, CEO of CGS Group, LLC, who are producing the event in Jamaica.
CGS Group has confirmed a partnership with Jamaica's Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission for the staging of the Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit. "We are delighted that Jamaica has been selected from among a group of highly competitive Caribbean countries for the seventh Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit.
"This event builds on our own annual Gaming Industry Summit which we have hosted for the past three years for local industry stakeholders," said Carole Martinez-Johnson, acting executive director of the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC). "The BGLC team looks forward to welcoming gaming industry executives from the region and beyond to Jamaica. It is our intention that CGS 2017 provides invaluable networking opportunities and is a platform from which new strategic alliances and cooperative agreements can emerge."
The programme of activities at CGS 2017 includes conference plenary sessions exploring key issues for the region's gaming industry such as de-risking and anti-money laundering, security, responsible gaming, as well as trends in the global gaming industry.
For the first time, the Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit will include a special Regulator's Forum at which representatives of gaming regulatory organisations from around the region will explore issues related to regulating online gaming and sports betting.
