MONTE-CARLO EUROMAT Summit 2018


Jason Frost, President, EUROMAT


The European Gaming and Amusement Federation’s (EUROMAT) annual summit will take place June 4-6, in Monaco at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. As the body representing the views of the low-stakes gaming and amusements industries to European institutions, EUROMAT has designed the new- format summit to enable operators, regulators and manufacturers to exchange information in a relaxed and informal setting.


EUROMAT to tackle European issues head on during Summit


I see EUROMAT as a forum for members to share best practices irrespective of the differences we face country- by-country. Every market is dictated by its own gaming law - what EUROMAT is able to do is influence at a different level. We can take a universal view of issues such as social responsibility and how it affects the industry as a whole. Independent of national issues, EUROMAT gives assistance to regulators, acting as a conduit between regulators and member states in regards to national and international issues.


Appearing on a multitude of panel sessions at the forthcoming EUROMAT Summit in Monte-Carlo in June, EUROMAT President Jason Frost speaks to G3 ahead of the conference about the relevance of the organisation, the future for the amusement and gaming industry in Europe and what’s next for the trade body in 2018


How do you describe EUROMAT?


Te European Gaming and Amusement Federation is the voice of land-based gaming entertainment industry in Europe. We are a collaboration of European trade associations, which two years ago agreed to open its membership to corporate members, as prior to that only trade associations were eligible to join. I also want to stress that as a European association, our members extends beyond the European Union to the entire geography of Europe and act as a lobbying body and hub to share information across the entire continent.


EUROMAT offers support for amusement and gaming products in countries in which it is legal to operate those machines, which includes the sharing of information, research and lobbying on behalf of our members. We have a legal tracker, which is a specialised team that monitors the legal implications for gaming and amusements in both Europe and individual member states, which is sent to all members. I see EUROMAT as a forum for members to share best practices irrespective of the differences we face country-by-country. Every market is dictated by its own gaming law - what EUROMAT is able to do is influence at a different level.

We can take a universal view of issues such as social responsibility and how it affects the industry as a whole. Independent of national issues, EUROMAT gives assistance to regulators, acting as a conduit between regulators and member states in regards to national and international issues. In the manufacturing sector, we are seeking to address concerns such as homologation and testing, seeking to make headway on behalf of our members to distinguish between hardware and software testing, to make the process more efficient and cost-effective going forward.


I’ve recently attended national trade association meetings in Spain, Germany, Romania, Italy and Serbia. Not only is this useful to raise the profile of EUROMAT at the individual country level, but when you see country’s such as Italy, in which 130,000 machines are to be removed from bars and cafes, we have to make members aware that EUROMAT can lend a shoulder to their lobbying process. Members need to understand the muscle that we can bring to their issues at not only at the European level, but at the local ground floor level too.


What are the boundaries of EUROMAT in terms of its members, locations, machines - what’s its remit?
