Gaming industry provider Merkur Gaming Peru has described its participation in the latest edition of Peru Gaming Show as “a huge success.” The expo, which returned to its traditional dates, took place on June 15-16, Lima for its 19th edition. It “exceeded expectations,” according to opinions from exhibitors, regulators, and visitors.
As the largest exhibiting company at PGS, Merkur Gaming Peru says it put on a “magnificent” display, highlighting its Link Zone and new Solar Link progressive jackpot solutions together with the Merkur Mystery feature link, and a selection of “top class” multigame machines that featured the “latest and best” game titles.
Merkur’s sister brands edict eGaming, presenting online gaming solutions plus cash handling technology experts GeWeTe, were also present at 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, was just as proud of both the planning and organization work that his Lima-based team had put in as he was with the results being calculated at the end of the event. He 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,” Mieles explained. “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 a very positive result.”
Adding to those comments Athanasios ‘Sakis’ Isaakidis, Chief Executive, International noted: “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.”
“I want to thank everyone for making PGS such a huge success. Our resident team in Lima, who worked with almost military precision, as well as our international colleagues who gave 100% support throughout. The PGS organizers 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,” he concluded.
Also on display at the Merkur booth was the Merkur Biergarten, a catering and hospitality area that 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,” according to the company. The feature will “undoubtedly return” as will Merkur’s presence in future PGS editions.
Based on this most recent performance, held once again at the Jockey Exhibitions Centre, Lima, it now seems almost certain that PGS will now take up the mantle of being the show representing all of Latin America, Merkur claims.
Organized by the AMG SAC company, PGS boasted more than 5,000 square meters of exhibitor booth space, with both the online and traditional land-based gaming genres well-represented.
