The Minister with responsibility for gaming, Gilbert Licudi, was in London this week to attend the ‘ICE Totally Gaming’ exhibition, the largest and most comprehensive gaming exhibition in the world. Based at the ExCel Centre and lasting for three days, the exhibition brings together international operators and suppliers from across all gaming sectors.
"As an industry which constantly has to meet new challenges, the competitive nature
of the gaming industry requires constant innovation by operators. And, with Gibraltar hosting the most important online gaming companies in the world, it is crucial that we keep abreast of new developments in the industry."
On this visit to the ‘International Casino Exhibition - Totally Gaming,’ he is accompanied by Phil Brear, the Gambling Commissioner and other members of the Government's gambling division.
In addition to touring the exhibition and listening to a number of the exhibition’s key speakers, Licudi held meetings with two gaming operators, both of whom are interested in establishing operations in Gibraltar.
During his visit to London, the Minister also met with officials at the Treasury where he was again able to promote Gibraltar's case against the proposed Point of Consumption tax. This meeting was also an ideal opportunity to discuss other Finance Centre matters.
