October 15, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — GROUP C&GS has been working closely with operators, manufacturers, authorities and various representatives and distributors to introduce to the Casinos Caribbean market the latest products and services from the  international market.

Before the 2010 edition, Dominican Republic had 22 brands of machines and roulette tables approved, for example. To date, this number has increased to 26. The support of the Casino Association and the Dominican Republic Casinos Direction was essential so we could fully develop our work and sit down the bases of what is now The Biggest Caribbean Exhibition. The authorities of this country played a leading role during CGS2010 Conferences. Mr. Julio Anibal Fernandez, Treasure Vice Minister opened the panel on March 11th, sealing the first day with Ms. Sofia Estevez, Puerto Rico Tourism Company Chairman joining Mr. Jose Carlos Figueroa presence. Virgin Islands was also present with the participation of Mr. David R. Oliver, Gaming Board Director. Bally, Cirsa, BMM, University of Nevada, Gaming Signature, were also important companies to crown panelists who completed the academic portion of CGS2010.

Main and important Executives from leading companies in the gaming World visited us, like IGT, GLI, Aristocrat, Shuffle Master, Stargames, Konami, Ainsworth, Merkur, Gemaco, Boss, Poker Tek, TCS JHuxley, Hispania Casinos, Signs4U, Suzo Happs, Hess,  Chetu, Casinfo, and much more, totaling more than 400 visitors in the two weekdays, arriving from different parts of Latin America, U.S. and Europe. A total of 31 companies participated in the edition just passed.

As result of this International Show in Santo Domingo, work has begun on the statutes and guidelines draft that will form the basis of the Caribbean Gaming Association, based on the initiative proposed by Mr Julio Anibal Fernandez, Treasurer Vice Minister of Dominican Republic, which was echoed among the personalities who participated in the III Latin America Gaming Conference. It is hoped that the signing of this important agreement will crystallize in the framework of the V Latin American Gaming and Lotteries Conference, during  CGS2011.

In this next edition we will be including and increasing the presence of specialized companies in Lotteries and Online Betting and Gaming.

Why Lotteries and Online items?
There are going to be very positive changes in the short term, perhaps in the most important market in the Americas, United States. The trends of recent times indicate that there is a need to generate more income through the game, and this can be achieved only through Lotteries, where State and Operators cooperate in order to crystallize the target. The clearest indicators that change is underway, are Harrah’s entry into the world of online gaming and Gtech´s acquisition of assets in the online gaming industry and his commitment to American State Lotteries and consolidated reality elsewhere. We will have the participation of the Dominican National Lottery and the Treasure Ministry to organize the V Latin American Gaming and Lotteries Conference.

The spread and promotion how will work?
Once again CASINOS DE LATINOAMERICA will  be our Platinum Media Sponsor and EL DIARIO DEL JUEGO.COM our Digital Media Sponsor.
But add to these, more than 30 largest and most important media companies will join us, and benefit all our Exhibitors, that will have the most effective coverage and promotion since joining the CGS2011 up The Post Show Report.

Finally, what dates should be scheduled on the Shows Calendar?
In March, opening the Latin American Exhibitions Calendar.
It will be announced the exact dates and sponsors of this third event that undoubtedly is now, clearly and without question, The  Biggest Caribbean Exhibition, as dictated by our slogan. What we can confirm is that there will be no change of dates to be announced once final information. In 2008 we said Aruba Gaming Show 2009 will be in March 12 and 13, and it was. In 2009 we said CGS2010 be in March 10 and 11, and it was. When we confirm our dates for CGS2011 in the coming weeks, those will be.
