The first ever Cyprus Gaming Show, originally scheduled for May in Bafra, North Cyprus – will now be held in Nicosia, Republic of Cyprus 20 – 21 September 2017. The event has been fully endorsed by the National Betting Authority of the Republic of Cyprus.

The event’s planner and promoter, Eventus International, will collaborate closely with the National Betting Authority to ensure the event receives the full support of the National Gaming and Casino Supervision Commission, the Director of the Government Lottery, and all other related regulatory bodies.

Eventus International saw the following benefits, among others, in relocating the groundbreaking event to the southern portion of the divided country. While there are casinos in the self-declared republic of Northern Cyprus the Republic of Cyprus offers greater promise to investors as well as superior infrastructure and technology for doing business in the Eastern Mediterranean. The Republic is strategically located with easy access from Europe and Africa and furthermore has established and implemented a gaming regulatory framework which is enforced and is in harmony with the Republic’s laws.

Adding to these benefits for Cyprus Gaming Show delegates, the business and investment climate in Cyprus is growing. Recently a consortium that includes Macau’s Melco and Hard Rock from the U.S. was granted a license to construct and operate an integrated resort in Limassol as part of a multi-purpose complex including accommodations, entertainment, and gambling.

Yudi Soetjiptadi, Eventus International’s Managing Director says: “We are honored to host this event in collaboration with the National Betting Authority of the Republic of Cyprus, in Limassol. The event will be better and bigger, allowing more opportunities and with more floor space for sponsors and exhibitors. It will attract a wider audience from the US, Europe and the
Mediterranean and will be open to iGaming as well as Land based casinos.”

Mr. Soetjiptadi added that the opening remarks for the Cyprus Gaming Show will be delivered by Ioanna Fiakkou, President of the National Betting Authority of the Republic of Cyprus. Mr. Fiakkou will pay particular attention to specific frameworks that regulate betting and other elements of the gambling sector in Cyprus. Further presentations will be delivered by various respected and knowledgeable speakers from the US, UK, and South Africa.
