1652 – Community Entertainment Venues
Our Chair, Mr. Tony Rosa,continues to push and encourage Charitable Gaming to remain relevant and focused on the future and ensuring we are always seeking to transition into remaining a valued community activity.
Thus, with the changing landscape within the broader leisure sector and noting the changing consumer’s behaviours, we need to ensure we focus on two core themes to drive our development Connectivity and Delivery. Therefore, we are charged with fully understanding our points of connection with and to the consumers and then preparing the best delivery method of our service and experience to them that is both compelling and exciting.
We are at the point in our development cycle where we need to re-think and re-position accordingly. Thus, as Community Entertainment Venues we sense this will best position and will differentiate our venues from others in this province.
We are also at the point where we will stop, to narrowly focus, on traditional bingo sessions that are old school and old thinking. Bingo, as a product, retains its value within our product portfolio but it needs to be re-positioned. Our combined focus should be turned to social engagement, games of chance (bingo), ancillary games (intermissions), entertainment and reformatting hospitality, all driving to more compelling consumer experience.
Thus, hosting multiple consumer experiences simultaneously under one roof.
We continue to see the development & re-investment by the Commercial Operators in their venues with prime examples being Jackpot City Gaming, Play-Entertainment, Dolphin Gaming and Delta Gaming Centre (Toronto). In each of them we see different levels of innovation. All have one thing on common, a clear focus on the consumer experience.
More details will be emerging on this important internal initiative as the year develops.
