Merkur Gaming has joined the European Gaming and Amusement Federation (EUROMAT). The international sales and development brand of adp Gauselmann GmbH hopes the cooperation with the Federation will lead to a productive dialogue with the European Union and other pan-European bodies to discuss gaming-related policy issues.
“The gaming and amusement industry in Europe is a highly regulated and highly taxed industry sector that contributes many jobs across Europe. With Merkur Gaming, EUROMAT is gaining a strong partner with many years of industry experience that will give the interests of the gaming industry additional weight at EU level,” explains Athanasios “Sakis” Isaakidis, Chief Executive, International and Head of International Product Management at Merkur Gaming.
EUROMAT President Jason Frost adds: “We are delighted to welcome such a major industry player to EUROMAT. Merkur Gaming’s membership will strengthen the number of our corporate members.”
Based in Brussels, EUROMAT was established in 1979 to represent the interests of the gaming entertainment industry in Europe. Today, EUROMAT has 18 national member associations from 12 European nations, as well as four corporate members. It informs its members about policy decisions and forthcoming legislation that might affect the legal, commercial and technical framework conditions of companies, and also provides information on the European gaming sector to media, administrative bodies and citizens.
