A large number of Isle of Man e-Gaming companies have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2016 B2B Awards by eGaming Review Magazine (EGR).
The annual EGR B2B Awards, now in their seventh year, celebrate excellence in a range of e-Gaming disciplines, including payments, software and IT.
Alfred Cannan MHK, the Department Member with responsibility for e-Gaming commented:
'The Island's e-Gaming sector has grown from strength to strength, with e-Gaming and e-Business totalling around 25% of National Income combined. We have worked hard to ensure that there is an attractive regulatory environment, first-class technical infrastructure and effective licensing for new and existing businesses in this sector. Working together with the private sector we have established a thriving cluster of on-island companies and are seeing real growth, real jobs and a real presence on the Isle of Man.
'We are delighted that the EGR Awards have recognised the immense talent and experience we have on the Isle of Man and I wish all of the local companies luck on the night.'
Mark Robson, Head of e-Gaming at the Department of Economic Development, commented:
'The Isle of Man has seen nominations across all the different factions of e-Gaming, with nominations for 10 local companies, from banking and professional services to hosting and B2C gaming. This typifies the end-to-end solutions for e-Gaming on the Isle of Man and the supportive environment that makes it such a success.'
The Awards take place on Wednesday 1 June at the Pavilion at the Tower of London.
