The Gauselmann Group has invested close to half a billion pounds in the UK economy: its’ founder and CEO Paul Gauselmann questions whether the Government’s decision to discriminate against AGCs in its reopening roadmap means the company can continue to invest in the high street as it had planned
Let’s get the details of re-opening agreed and in place now so the industry can help start the recovery on the high street, argues Gauselmann’s Sascha Blodau.
“Gauselmann UK is a fully integrated business with both consumer facing and b2b brands, two sectors that have received significantly different levels of government assistance.
Blueprint Operations managing director David Purvis believes AGCs are taking progressive steps to retain players, investing in the latest gaming equipment as a method of delivering what he is describing as ‘big entertainment experiences’.
Sascha Blodau, General Manager Gauselmann (UK) has urged the government to adopt a more granular or detailed strategy to help combat the spread of Covid-19.
Gauselmann owned brands, Praesepe and Blueprint have joined forces with Bacta to donate £12,000 to fund 100 Amazon Fire tablets and care packages to industry charity, Rays of Sunshine (ROS). The tablets, described as a ‘god send’ by ROS chief executive Laura Barnett, will be distributed to children who, due to restrictions introduced to help stem the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, find themselves isolated from friends and family in hospital.
The Gauselmann Group has underlined its commitment to and faith in the UK gaming industry by completing the second stage of a three part AGC investment project which in infrastructure terms alone will total £15m by completion in Q4 2020.
