GMB - How was Copag's participation in ICE London?
Fabiano Veiga - It was sensational. We have received numerous visitors at our stand and have made strategic meetings with customers and potential customers that could bear fruit in the future.
What were the main novelties presented at the event and what impact did they have on visitors?
Our 100% plastic card decks for casinos, and also the cardboard ones, always make an impact on visitors for the quality presented and this was evidenced once again at ICE London.
In how many countries is currently Copag present?
In 2017 we sell to 39 countries spread all over the world. That is, we are a global company in the card decks area.
So it was a very good year for the company... What are the prospects for 2018?
The year 2017 was the consolidation of our brand and product in the largest casino groups in the world. It was a good year. By 2018, we expect to expand our market, always seeking new customers in all regions of the planet.
As the largest manufacturer of card decks, and headquartered in Brazil, how were you approached by businessmen from all over the world in search of information on regulation of the activity in Brazil?
Several people asked us on the subject. It seems that the gaming world is ready to invest in Brazil and are waiting only that the activity get regulated.
Do you expect this regulation later this year?
We expect it to happen as soon as possible, although we know it is a controversial issue and 2018 will be an election year.
