Another Winning Score For ACOS

The second Autumn Coin-Op Show has closed on a positive note with exhibitors reporting brisk business. The show floor was packed with the good and the great of the UK amusements industry, including buyers, operators, site owners and those representing trade organisations.

Organiser Karen Cooke was keen to thank the event’s many supporters: “We always knew that the first ACOS would be a tough act to follow but we have been overwhelmed by positive comments and support for the show. We achieved our objective of maintaining a relaxed and sociable atmosphere but, make no mistake, a great deal of business was done at the show. I’d like to express my gratitude to all of those involved, both exhibitors and visitors, who have helped to make the show such a success,” thanked Karen.

A busy show floor and well attended After Show Drinks Reception bore testimony to the Autumn Show’s emergence as one of the main industry networking events.

“We believe that Stamford Bridge’s convenient location and superb facilities have played a large part, but the main reason for the success of ACOS has to be the enthusiasm of our industry. We built the show at the industry’s request and they came! The level of support we’ve received has been truly remarkable,” continued Karen.

The show’s exhibitors represented a broad section of the industry; businesses large and small, new and established, corporate and family run.

Blueprint Gaming’s Operations Director Andy Hall reported an excellent show, saying, “The second ACOS was an excellent opportunity for us to catch up with customers in the UK market and we received good orders for Aurora from AMG Sales, while Paul Wilson Sales (PWS) our distributor for reel-based product made significant sales of Cash Exploder, the latest model for the pub market.

“Many thanks to Swan Events for another great ACOS show – what a fantastic venue and a wonderful location for our stand next to the BACTA lounge. We certainly plan to return again next year,” concluded Andy.

Over at the Wexel Gaming stand, Chris Shipley was also positive, saying, “We’ve had a lot of interest from visitors who were genuine decision takers and we’ve taken orders,” revealed Chris.

SB Machines’ Paulo Sidoli commented: “We’ve spoken to a lot of people - the show looks very promising,” whilst at Genesis Games, Hans Bierum was also impressed with the event, saying, “We’re surprised at the amount of year on year growth.”

At Ace Gaming, Alan Parker was also pleased with the show, saying, “A good response. It’s nice to see genuine customers who have money to spend. We took orders before lunchtime on the first day.”

In only two years, ACOS has secured its position as a must-attend event in the industry calendar. Organisers have confirmed that many of the exhibitors taking part at ACOS 2015 are already reserving space for next year’s show.

ACOS 2016 will again be held at Chelsea Football Club and is scheduled for 12-13th October 2016.
