IMA â€“ International Trade Fair for Amusement and Vending Machines 2015 cancelled
Berlin, 05 June 2014. The German association of the amusement and vending machines industry (Verband der Deutschen Automatenindustrie e. V. - VDAI) has cancelled the International Trade Fair for Amusement and Vending Machines that was scheduled for January 2015. The cancellation of the leading trade fair of the industry is due to economic reasons resulting from political decisions on the part of the German states and the Federal government.
VDAI represents the manufacturers of amusement machines with cash winning options, the so-called coin-operated gaming machines. Manufacturers, dealers and operators of commercial coin-operated gaming machines, and the German amusement and vending machine sector with them, have faced increasing political pressure over the last few years.
