    "I have been asked on a number of occasions over the last few years about hosting an event in the North of England," said Karen Cooke, Expo organiser. "After much research and deliberation, taking into account loading/unloading, visitor transport access, parking, and a wide range of hotels within walking distance, I am pleased to confirm that the Amusement & Retail Entertainment Expo will take place in Manchester. As always, we like to tailor our events specifically to our industry and in unique venues – with this in mind, we will host the Expo at Cotton Sheds, Victoria Warehouse, in central Manchester."

The event will feature a wide range of exhibitors, all showcasing the newest advancements in low-stakes gaming, entertainment and leisure equipment.

    John Stergides, Managing Director of Electrocoin says, “Electrocoin looks forward to participating in this new event and we urge the rest of the industry to support the initiative as well.”

    "We are really excited to support this new event with a fresh focus," said Ian Eason, Managing Director of Instance Automatics. “It will be great to have a show in Manchester.”

    Martin Agabeg, Managing Director of NSM Music, also expressed his enthusiasm: "We are thrilled to confirm we will be exhibiting at the Amusement & Retail Entertainment Expo - fantastic to have an exhibition of this scope happening in the North."

    "We invite everyone involved in the leisure and retail sectors to join us at the Expo," added Karen Cooke. "This is a fantastic opportunity to see first-hand the innovations shaping the future of our industry. Manchester, known for its vibrant culture and excellent transport links, is the perfect location for the Expo.
