José Aníbal Aguirre, General Director of the event.

José Aníbal Aguirre commented on his expectations about the event, 20 days before it takes place, and said: “The list of participating companies speaks for itself of the reception to the broad call, marketing and communications campaign we have carried out. The changes that the gaming fair calendar has undergone due to the pandemic, make GAT Expo open the agenda of face-to-face meetings in Latin America and be the first gaming fair to be held in 2022 at a global level. We hope and have worked hard to present a fair of a great category with the support of the Cartagena de Indias Convention Center.

“I would like to highlight and thank the Colombian associations, Fecoljuegos and Cornazar, for having chosen our event to hold their annual ordinary assemblies at this venue. Likewise, the active involvement of Asojuegos and its affiliates. GAT Cartagena will be a uniquely personal and commercial experience. A dozen events that make up the fair will cover multiple topics of interest to entrepreneurs and operators, at a very particular moment in history,” he added. 

“Participants will experience the magic of Cartagena de Indias in the networking events we have prepared for clients and friends, on land and onboard on sunset tours of the Bay of Cartagena,” he concluded.
