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 said: ‘The island’s eGaming sector has grown from strength to strength, with eGaming and eBusiness totalling around 25 per cent of national income combined.
‘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 eGaming at the Department of Economic Development, said: ‘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, June 1 at the Pavilion at the Tower of London.
