Gaming and entertainment company GameOn Entertainment Technologies Inc has become an official member of the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), the national trade body of the gaming industry in Canada. The membership is to become effective on July 1, 2021.
Members of the CGA will attain the privilege to foster new relationships with the various entities involved in the gaming industry in Canada that currently collaborate or partner with the organization.
In addition, CGA members receive additional benefits such as advocacy on legislation impacting Canadian gaming companies, access to research that covers important topics related to the gaming sector, networking opportunities and exclusive marketing through CGA’s Canadian Gaming Summit and Canadian Gaming Business magazine, respectively.
“We are pleased to join the prestigious Canadian Gaming Association,” said Matt Bailey, CEO of GameOn Entertainment Technologies. “The recent passing of Bill C-218 positions our company to capture market share and create new relationships, synergies and partnerships with fellow CGA members and operators across Canada. By joining the CGA, we will be able to strengthen our position in the Canadian market to capitalize on domestic opportunities,” said Bailey.
“We are delighted to welcome GameOn as the newest member of the CGA,” said Paul Burns, President and CEO. “We are impressed with the state-of-the-art technology platform that GameOn provides to operators in the newly regulated single-bet sports wagering market in Canada.”
GameOn has also confirmed the appointment this week of Howard A Blank, President and CEO of Point Blank Entertainment, to its Advisory Board. He has over 30 years’ experience in the Canadian gaming space with roles as Vice President of Media, Entertainment & Responsible Gaming at Great Canadian Gaming Corporation.
“I am delighted to be joining Matt Bailey and his impressive team of colleagues as an Advisor to the organization,” said Blank. “GameOn is poised to be a big disruptor in the gaming and entertainment sectors and I am excited to be working alongside such talented and dedicated team members at GameOn.”
