The organization of Gaming & Technology Expo confirmed the second edition of GAT Caribe, to be held on June 9 and 10, 2022, at The Westin Puntacana Resort & Club, located in the city of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
According to a press release, the participants of the first edition, held in November 2021 in the Dominican Republic, “expressed their desire and motivation to run the event again, given its productivity and importance in bringing together the local industry and offering technological updates, academic knowledge and business and regulatory perspectives in the region, to the different visitors and operators who attend.
José Aníbal Aguirre, CEO of 3A Producciones, the company organizing the event, indicated that GAT Expo 2022 is being held thanks to the support of the Dominican Association of Gaming Casinos and the National Association of Sports Banks, guilds that “have made their contributions to the construction of the contents suggested by the organization” and that have called on their affiliates to be present in the event’s programming.
“GAT Caribe offers all Dominican industry players a neutral space for annual meetings with the international sector, and we hope that this will continue to be the mission in the coming years,” added the executive of 3A Producciones.
According to what they informed, “the great novelty” of the GAT Caribe 2022 will be the realization of a work table in which members of the Chamber of Deputies and the Dominican Republic businessmen will participate, who expect to debate in all its extension the draft bill that reforms the current regulation of games of chance in the country.
Congressman Luis Henríquez, from the Dominican province of Santo Domingo, seeks to put the bill under consideration again. In the TAG Caribbean 2022, a detailed presentation and a debate on the legal initiative will be carried out, in order to reach agreements that can then be passed to the Congress of said country.
