Gaming and lottery regulators and government lottery representatives from all over Latin America and the Caribbean gathered together in Curacao to participate in Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI) unique Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable.
[dropcap]G[/dropcap]LI Director, Latin America and Caribbean government relations and business development Karen Marcela Sierra-Hughes said, “We have no words to express our gratitude to all the government representatives that joined us in our first Roundtable celebrated in the Caribbean. Government lotteries and gaming and lottery regulators from more than 36 entities and two associations (ALEA and CIBELAE) from 22 countries from the Caribbean and Latin American region decided to participate in this unique event.
“GLI dedicates a lot of effort every year to put this conference together with the aim to exceed the expectations of the attendees,” Sierra-Hughes added. “We are thankful to the regulators and lotteries that participated as speakers, sharing with their colleagues their experience and wealth of knowledge that differs from country to country as the reality of each of our jurisdictions aims for different regulatory strategies. We are extremely grateful to Mr. Gino Campbell, executive director of the Curacao Gaming Control Board, and his team who worked with us on securing the success of the Roundtable. This Roundtable was not only successful in terms of content and attendance, but also on the camaraderie among attendees that we hope will continue as many of the positive repercussions of the event. Mr.Campbell’s support from the organizational standpoint and his team’s hospitality and warm welcome to the government representatives attending the conference will be remembered and treasured for years to come.”
