Harding  has over 30 years experience in the gambling sector said: “I’m passionate about the gaming entertainment industry so I’m pleased to be more closely involved with EUROMAT as the voice of our sector across the EU.

“Gaming, like other parts of the leisure industry, has had to cope with tough economic conditions in recent years. EUROMAT has to continue to support European gaming to become more competitive by ensuring that governments fully understand the importance of a fair regulatory environment.”

EUROMAT’s President Annette Kok said: “The land-based gaming entertainment industry is already highly taxed and highly regulated. Today’s discussions highlight that governments need to ensure that they regulate and tax in a way which allows land-based gaming companies to compete on a level playing field. Fair treatment will allow the sector to contribute positively to Europe’s leisure industry and create more European jobs.”

EUROMAT is the voice of the gaming and amusement industry in Europe. Established in 1979 it has 20 members from 15 European Countries.
