The UK amusements industry will retain its voice at the centre of Europe with Jason Frost re-elected to the office of President of the European Gaming and Amusement Federation.
The former Bacta president was “unanimously backed” by the continental association at its Annual General Meeting, held virtually on Wednesday this week. Frost will serve for another two-year term in the post.
Commenting on his re-election, Jason Frost said: “Our industry is emerging from a uniquely disruptive period. As doors to venues now start to reopen and customers return we need to focus on how we build back better as an industry.
“The pandemic has reminded us that many of the rules that govern our industry need to be rethought. Cashless payment is a good example of this. With the support of my Vice President and Treasurer I will be making sure that EUROMAT is doing everything it can to improve the business environment for our members.”
He added: “I would also like to congratulate my fellow board members Uwe Christiansen as Vice President and Sanne Muijser as treasurer and thank them personally for the time and effort they bring to EUROMAT, together we will continue to press ahead”.
Frost has held the presidency at the European body since June 2017 and will drive the association’s core targets during the tough post-Covid period. More so now than ever, EUROMAT will be pushing for fairer taxation policies covering the land based amusements and gaming industry, a sustained programme of social responsibility initiatives and a re-think on more relevant regulation.
