Blueprint has gone the extra mile with the launch of a 3D virtual exhibition which provides the industry with an advanced opportunity to see its new product range ahead of ACOS going live.


Blueprint has confirmed the launch of its highly acclaimed 3D virtual exhibition initiative for ACOS, primarily to assist customers who are unable to travel to London and attend the show which will be the first inperson gaming and amusements event to be held in the UK for 20-months.

Blueprint’s VACOS initiative enables visitors to chat live with a member of the Blueprint Team who will be on-hand to guide visitors around the virtual stand, answer questions and provide additional insight on the three exciting new cabinets that will be physically unveiled at ACOS itself. It enables customers to schedule meetings and book a dedicated appointment with a member of the team. Sister brand, GeWeTe has a presence on the virtual stand where it will be showing its complete debit card TITO solution. The VACOS experience will also feature on demand key note presentations delivered by bacta CEO John White who will provide an update on the progress and likely timetable of the Government’s White Paper on gambling. Francis Mallinson of Public Affairs Consultancy Interel has also produced an exclusive update on the current political situation facing the industry including the implications of the cabinet reshuffle which saw Chris Philp replace John Whittingdale as gambling minister. Nick Aaron, Partner at Poppleston Allen will update on the DCMS’ call for evidence and the review of the Gambling Act, along with practical information relating to the proposed changes for LA’s Statement of Principles.

Blueprint Managing Director David Purvis explained: “Our previous virtual exhibition proved a hugely popular initiative when we launched it in May and we wanted to provide the same level of access and contact for those members of the industry who perhaps don’t feel comfortable participating in an in-person event or are unable to travel to London.”

“There are also wider benefits of staging a virtual ACOS exhibition: it enables companies to involve more of their broader team in the exhibition experience and of course it provides visitors to ACOS with a preview of what they will see in London. In an ideal world potential buyers want to stand in front of a machine and see how it plays and feels but what I can say is that the Blueprint VACOS experience is the next best thing to being there. Absolutely everything that we do as a business is customer focussed and I’m delighted that VACOS WILL enable the brand to connect with the industry in its broadest sense.”

“The opportunity to see dynamic new product is at the heart of every exhibition experience both in-person and virtual. I am confident that the combination of three formidable new cabinets comprising the B3 Wave+ and Auroramax+, the Ultramax Category C, as well as the pipeline of compelling new game titles and cash handling solutions from GeWeTe underlines our status as the industry’s most complete supply partner.”
