Returning to its traditional dates, June 15-16, and for its 19th edition expectations were at an all-time high for the Peru Gaming Show. Those expectations, by overwhelming strength of opinion from both exhibitors, regulators and visitors, were seen to be not just met, but by some margin, exceeded.
As the largest exhibiting company at PGS, MERKUR GAMING Peru (with strong international support) put on a magnificent display, highlighting its Link Zone and new Solar Link progressive jackpot solutions together with the eloquently named MERKUR Mystery feature link and a strong selection of top-class multigame machines that featured the latest and best game titles. Also presented on the MERKUR booth was the traditionally themed MERKUR Biergarten. This catering and hospitality area has been a MERKUR fixture over several past years and represents a chance for visitors and guests to take a “time out” from the crowded aisles, take a seat, relax for a while and enjoy the food and drink hospitality provided.
MERKUR’s sister brands edict eGaming, presenting online gaming solutions plus cash handling technology experts GeWeTe were also present on the MERKUR booth and both also reported excellent levels of interest not just from Peru but also from right across the LatAm region.
Tomas Mieles, MERKUR’s Sales Director for Latin America, said: “I am delighted with how well the show has gone for MERKUR. We are a major brand in Peru but PGS also brought in important contacts from right across the region. The work that every member of our Peru team has put in has been exceptional and the smooth running of every aspect of the show has been the very positive result.”
Athanasios ‘Sakis’ Isaakidis, Chief Executive, International, said: “This has been an outstanding show for MERKUR. I was delighted that we were showing our latest Linked progressive Jackpot solutions, Link Zone and the brand new Solar Link at the show and that we were also able to visit some important casinos in Lima, see Link Zone in action and, most importantly, see players really enjoying the base games and the thrill of hitting jackpots.”
He concluded: “I want to thank everyone in making PGS such a huge success. Our resident team in Lima, who worked with an almost military precision and our international colleagues who gave 100% support throughout. The PGS organisers deserve praise for the show that they presented. It makes me fully support the feeling that this will come to be known as the most important gaming B2B event in Latin America.”
