For the Euromat 2018 Summit, taking place 4 -6 June, will be a very busy time. Formed in 1974, Bacta is the leading UK trade association, representing the interests of more than 500 companies in the gaming arena. The Association plays a very active role in Euromat, having joined some 18 years ago.
Bacta chief executive John White is to chair two sessions at the Euromat 2018 Summit, taking place 4 -6 June. White is to chair TITO: A Pathway To New Payment Options? and Understanding The FEC Market. He will also join the panel on: Self Exclusion: Is It Working And How Do You Manage It To Be Effective?
White has worked in industries as diverse as meat rendering, baby products, timber, and garden furniture and has spent more than 14 years in the machine industry, campaigning on many pivotal issues.
“Bacta’s relationship with EUROMAT has been a long one. Some years ago I held the post of First Vice President for a couple of years, under the Presidency of Eduardo Antoja,” said White.
“With Jason Frost currently at the helm, Euromat is enjoying expanding membership and is active around various policy issues of interest to the UK, such as Payment Systems. Euromat is getting to the places where it needs to be, such as the Gaming Regulators European Forum (GREF), and representing the collective interests of the European machine industry. It’s also helping to develop markets such as France. This is all important work.
“I feel it’s its appropriate to emphasise the value of the networking at events such as the Summit. Meeting colleagues from Europe and understanding their regulatory systems and business models is a vital part of how we articulate our public policy ambitions,” said White.
Speaking about White’s representation of Bacta at the event, Euromat president Jason Frost commented: “I’ve worked alongside John for a number of years and I know that his contribution is sure to be a valuable one. We’re particularly grateful that John has agreed to participate in so many sessions.”
