The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved the creation of the new AGEM Mexico Committee based in Mexico City, which will focus on issues specific to the Mexican market that affect a wide range of gaming suppliers.
Current AGEM member companies with a presence in Mexico include Ainsworth Game Technology, Amatic Industries, Aristocrat Technologies, Austrian Gaming Industries (Novomatic), Bally Technologies, Boss Gaming, Cadillac Jack, Gold Club, International Game Technology (IGT), Intervision Gaming, JCM Global, Konami Gaming, GTECH, Merkur, Metronia, Ortiz Gaming, Scientific Games / WMS, TCSJohnHuxley, Video Gaming Technologies (VGT), Win Systems and Zitro. These machine, systems and technology providers will be represented by the new AGEM Mexico Committee.
Carlos Carrion, Director of Sales and Operations for Aristocrat will chair the AGEM Mexico Committee, which will also initially include Ramiro Salazar of Bally, Agustin Nieto of GTECH, Helio Bueno of Ortiz Gaming and Adolfo de los Rios of Metronia. The individual and company composition of the AGEM Mexico Committee will be reviewed periodically. AGEM has also retained two Mexico City-based law firms as legal advisors, Lazcano Sámano and Portilla, Ruy-Díaz y Aguilar.
Marcus Prater, AGEM Executive Director, commented: “This AGEM Mexico Committee is a natural extension of our efforts to ensure suppliers are well represented. In our recent discussions with various influential people in Mexico, we are confident the market is now headed in a positive direction and that there is a strong need for AGEM suppliers to have their own voice in the process going forward.”
