IT service provider Itex has been shortlisted for three awards at the 2012 EGaming Review (EGR) B2B Awards.
Now in their third year, the EGR B2B Awards are open to any company operating within the eGaming industry and the awards categories, which number over 30 in total, cover a wide spectrum of activities, from Corporate services supplier of the year to Software rising star of the year and Bingo network of the year.
The Awards celebrate the very best service providers and B2B Operators in the online gaming industry, and recognise the achievements of suppliers from across all the major eGaming disciplines. Entrants include specialists in betting and gaming software, networks, mobile eGaming, payments, eGaming recruitment, and IT & infrastructure.
Itex is shortlisted within three categories - Datacentre of the year, Best customer service of the year and IT supplier of the year. Award submissions and supporting testimonials have been judged by an impressive line-up of industry experts comprising of Board Directors, MDs and CEOs of large operators from within the sector. These include well-known brand names such as BskyB and William Hill.
Glyn Harris, Head of Sales for Itex in Guernsey was delighted to receive the news: "The EGR Awards night has become a 'must attend' event in the eGaming calendar. We have seen real success in the eGaming area of the business over the past few years and it's great to see our hard work pay off."
Robin Le Prevost, Director of eCommerce Development in Alderney agreed: "This is fantastic news for Itex and the islands. Alderney's on-going success as a centre of excellence for eGambling operators relies on modern hosting facilities and reliable telecommunications networks supplied by organisations such as Itex. This type of recognition is real testament to the quality of service provision offshore providers can offer."
Itex is shortlisted with Manx Telecom on two of the three shortlists and Glyn is philosophical about the potential results: "There are some good companies nominated and the competition is tough. The fact we are even shortlisted is a real achievement and being recognised by our peers working within the industry who make up the judging panel is a particular accolade. But of course it would be fantastic to win one of the three - so fingers crossed!"
The winners will be announced at the Awards event on 10 May at The Atrium, Wembley Arena when representatives from over 500 organisations are expected to attend.
