Your first impression after the confirmation of your membership in November 2023?
The confirmation of our membership was received with great enthusiasm and proudness by our team. We are really looking forward to actively engage with WoTA community, contribute to industry discussions, and explore collaborative opportunities.
What can WoTA brings to your company? And what your company can bring to WoTA?
WoTA can offer valuable networking opportunities, industry insights, and a place for collaborative initiatives. We also believe that it will provide an opportunity to stay update about the industry, regulatory developments, and best practices.
What can WoTA do differently (or change priorities) to become even more relevant for you?
WoTA could consider focusing on opening a collaborative space among its members, searching and discussing innovation in the global horse racing and betting industry.
Expanding our international business, we have been preparing a very structured platform in order to be prepared to quicky scale services and provides top-notch technologies to our customers.
What kind of relationship do you have with tote/horserace betting operators?
We maintain strategic partnerships with tote and horserace betting operators globally. These collaborations are vital to our business, they are our main source of improvements in our products. This relationship helps us on developing customised technology solutions to ensure the best betting experience for end-users.
Where do you see your company in a 10 – 15 years’ time?
We believe that PBTOTE can be a global leader in technology solutions for the horse racing and betting industry. We aim to have a significant international presence, collaborating with major stakeholders, and continually innovating to shape the future of the industry that we really love.
What do you do when you are not in charge of Horserace betting issues?
Outside of horserace betting issues, our team is in continuous research for innovative and new trends related to technology and development.
But if the question is more outside our work, then we can say that Mr. Jaime Baranzano likes to jogging and watching series, Mr. Marcio Santos like to practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mr Marcelo Galo likes playing padel and watching football.
Please tell us what is your best memory of a sport (horseracing or other) event you have attended?
The best event in the Brazilian horse racing industry, GP Brazil, specially in 2017, that was an amazing atmosphere, enthusiastic crowd and an amazing race. We can also highlight our presence on the famous Arc de Triomphe that took place, exceptionally, on the Chateau de Chantilly in 2017 too.
