Talarius, the UK’s largest operator of Adult Gaming Centres (AGCs), announced that it will be rejoining BACTA, citing the UK trade body for the amusements and leisure sector’s recent change in leadership. The company stepped down from BACTA in April last year, however, with the recent appointment of John White as BACTA’s new Chief Executive, Talarius will once again become a member.
Commenting on the decision to rejoin, Peter Harvey, Chief Operating Officer of Talarius, said: “We are really enthusiastic about John stepping into his new role at BACTA and the direction he believes the Association and wider industry should be taking. His approach will be more successful if adopted universally by the AGC sector, and we wanted to rejoin as soon as possible to play our part. We look forward to working with BACTA to address the regulatory imbalances that affect our sector.”
BACTA’s new Chief Executive, John White, said: “Talarius is a key player in the AGC sector and we are delighted to welcome the company back onboard. These are exciting but challenging times for the industry, and we are stronger when we all work together. It is important that we unite in order to achieve a positive change for the amusements sector.”
