EAG will honour some of the most respected names to have served the industry when the premier show for the amusements and low-stake gaming sectors opens at ExCeL London on 10th January. 

EAG 2023 which will comprise a show floor of industry-leading innovation, new centre-piece features and a seminar programme focussing on a number of the most important business issues of the day will be collectively opened by a VIP party comprising all remaining Directors from the ATEI era as well as the current EAG board. 

EAG 2023 will be declared officially open at a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by industry servants including Frank Manzi, Charles Henry, Roger Withers, Simon Thomas, John Bollom, Martin Burlin, Chris Haley, Jason Frost, Greg Wood, Tim Batstone, James Miller and Gabi Stergides.

EAG Chairman Martin Burlin, who has served the industry as both an ATEI and an EAG Director explained: “EAG is a celebration of everything that is unique about our industry including the key personalities such as Frank Manzi who have helped to guide it over many, many decades. 

“Our aim is to use January’s event to mark the longevity of our industry and to do this we have invited all remaining ATEI Directors and the current EAG Directors to collectively open the Show on Tuesday 10th January at 10.00 a.m. and to join me afterwards for some refreshments.

“We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the invitation which reflects the huge importance of an event that dates back to the 1930’s – longevity that’s shared by only a small number of UK-based exhibitions.”

Looking ahead to the 2023 show he added: “As well as representing the perfect place to see the latest revenue-boosting products, source fresh ideas to increase footfall and network with fellow professionals EAG 2023 will also see the launch of the new Safer Gambling Hub which will be the first dedicated to the land-based low stake sector. 

“We are also taking a new approach to the EAG Seminar Programme with practical sessions dedicated to providing advice on how to engage with politicians and elected representatives, customer engagement strategies and the delivery of an enjoyable customer experience, a summit dedicated to machine performance in pubs and clubs and a very practical focus on reducing business costs. In addition, we will shortly announce details of the new Bingo Hub which will be another EAG 2023 show launch.”
