Ambitious Plans amidst Industry Evolution
José Aníbal Aguirre, the CEO of GAT, emphasized the importance of the showcase as a platform for launching the Gaming & Technology Expo Cartagena 2024, an event that will mark 25 years of continuous efforts in promoting the gaming industry throughout Latin America.
The upcoming expo in Cartagena aims to feature not only technological advancements but also cutting-edge trends such as eSports tournaments and discussions on the impact of artificial intelligence.
The growth of gambling in Colombia from 2022 to 2023 further underscores the industry's positive trajectory. With a remarkable 24% increase in tax contributions, the State monopoly's funding for the national budget has significantly improved. Since 2016, Coljuegos has paved the way for sports betting and online gaming, leading to the operation of 17 platforms with over 8.5 million active player accounts across the country.
The GAT Showcase Bogotá 2023 event has garnered the support of government authorities and major trade associations, including Asojuegos, Cornazar, Fecoljuegos, and Fedelco, reflecting the industry's importance in the broader economy.
