The VExpo experience will feature on-demand key note presentations delivered by Bacta CEO John White who will provide the trade association perspective on the opportunities and challenges of the Gambling Review. Katherine Morgan, in her capacity as managing partner at public affairs consultancy, Interel will outline the political backdrop to legislation and regulation, with legal expert Nick Arron, of Poppleston Allen exploring the role of the Gambling Commission, the prospects of affordability checks being introduced as well as the features and challenges arising from the review of the 2005 Act.

Blueprint’s Managing Director David Purvis, is looking forward to meeting up with members of the industry after such a long period spent in lockdown. “Absolutely everything that we do as a business is geared to helping our customers, a commitment which has taken-on even greater importance during the difficult periods of lockdown” he stated. “We know from experience how important new game content is in terms of engaging with returning players. Machine players want to be offered a range of fresh gaming experiences and our portfolio of 20 new Category C and B3 titles – including those for Pub, Bingo, AGC, Motorway Service Areas and Holiday Parks – has both breadth and depth, providing operators with the tools they need to attract and retain players. This is particularly important in light of the potential migration of players to Licensed Betting Offices which have been allowed to trade, albeit with some restrictions, since April 12.”

He added: “We first started to consider creating the VExpo event several months ago and then sense-checked the concept with our customers, 85 percent of whom were supportive of the initiative when we canvassed their opinion.

“Our VExpo underlines the scale of our product offering and the breadth of our customer-base which includes AGC, Bingo, MSA, Pub and Holiday Parks. We’ve worked with an experienced and professional team to deliver the closest 3-D experience to attending an exhibition. To complete the virtual expo experience, we have added a conference style element with keynote on-demand contributions from regulatory, political and legal perspectives. We are extremely grateful to John White, Katherine Morgan and Nick Arron for their contributions.

“The opportunity to see exciting new product is at the heart of our VExpo experience and I am confident that the 20 new game titles and cash handling solutions from GeWeTe will underline our status as the industry’s most complete supply partner.”
