Press release n. 1 of the 03/02/2021 13.22.29 ( download )

Italian Exhibition Group focuses on recovery and announces the new dates of the 33rd International Amusement and Gaming Machine Show,
being held from 21st to 23rd September 2021 at Rimini Expo Centre

Rimini, 3rd February 2021 . Among the few trade expos able to be held live in 2020, ENADA, in October, represented an important sign of confidence for the entire gaming and amusement trade, communicating a renewed desire to ´team up´ on behalf of trade members.

Therefore, for 2021, realizing the market´s need to meet and network live as soon as the sector can take off again, after discussions with SAPAR and the stakeholders, Italian Exhibition Group has rescheduled the next appointment with ENADA, as always at Rimini Expo Centre, from 21st to 23rd September 2021, to ensure trade members definite dates and the certainty of doing business in the utmost safety.

The organizers at IEG, along with the long-standing partners of SAPAR, are certain that the 33rd edition of the International Amusement and Gaming Machine Show will also give a significant boost to the recovery of a market that is one of the hardest hit by the crisis.

Responsibility and resilience will continue to be the key words for IEG, Europe´s top operator for its capacity to produce its own events at the service of the market.
Constant direct contact with all the sector´s players is an indispensable characteristic for IEG, enabling it to understand and ensure immediate feedback for companies´ new visibility requirements, support recovery and kick-start business contacts again.

For really relaunching business, expos´ role as platforms for networking and professional growth is therefore confirmed as being truly fundamental.
