The Slot Summit to kick off with multimedia topping the bill

Riccardo Billi will be one industry leader visiting Bucharest next week

Multimedia management will come under the spotlight on the opening day of The Slot Summit next week as decision-makers from across the world gather in Bucharest, Romania to discuss the latest technologies, innovations, strategies and trends in the international slot machine industry.

Hundreds of executives will attend the Summit at the Hotel Novotel in Bucharest city centre from June 9-11, with the increasingly important role of multimedia set to take centre stage on Day One.

As part of an in-depth look at the subject across a series of sessions, GTECH Business Intelligence Professional Riccardo Billi will present a case study on ‘A User’s Perspective’ of multimedia products (11.45-12.15 on Tuesday).

“The Slot Summit represents a very important opportunity to share experiences and discuss this state-of-the-art business,” Billi told, before providing a taste of what to expect in his session.

“The usage of digital signage is something that can make a big difference. It can be used to promote a brand and new products, to communicate how to play and also to highlight wins history and local promotions in order to get as close as possible to the players.

“In a market in which games can be the same from one operator to another, the real difference is through the services offered to clients.”

To set the tone for an event packed with engaging presentations, debates and discussions, Pieter Remmers, Director of Assissa Consultancy Europe, will kick off Day One by offering the latest insights and strategies in the field of problem gambling (10.15-10.45 on Tuesday).

“The main focus will be on which tools can provide a real impact in terms of responsible gambling and also what we can learn from European experiences,” Remmers added to

“It is a big issue for operators as responsible gaming is becoming more and more important for regulators, industry stakeholders and society as a whole.

“Investing in responsible gaming represents an investment in the future of a company. Any operator that focuses on short-term finances rather than long-term profits cannot be considered to be sustainable.”

Whereas Day One will give attendees an insight into multimedia management and how to tackle problem gambling, on Day Two, game design, the physical environment and data inside the internet casino will be explored. On Day Three, server-based gaming, jackpots and various other topics will be discussed as the Summit wraps up.

For a highly anticipated event that will tap into the heart of the international slot machine industry, Remmers believes that Bucharest will provide the perfect backdrop.

“Romania and other Central and Eastern European countries are very interesting in this industry,” Remmers added.

“I have worked extensively in this part of the world, and I have always been interested in developing markets such as these and the cultural aspects that have to be considered.”
