John Stergides of London’s Electrocoin seems to love posing for pictures with "characters" - in this case at the Fijma trade show in Madrid, which was held last week.


He said that it was well attended but not by the international crowd, who may well have been at the clashing Saudi show.

He told us the show was much larger this year and his own company had a stand there alongside big names such as Novomatic, Merkur, Franco, Zitro, Orenes, Bally Wulff and Comatel.

Johnny reckoned that the show hours, having been changed from 11am to 8pm to 10am to 6pm had much to do with the show’s expansion.
