Clarion Gaming, the events company behind ICE, welcomes the online gaming world to the fifth Global iGaming Summit & Expo (GiGse) today in San Francisco. Attended by approximately 700 executives from around the world, GiGse is North America’s largest dedicated online gaming event.
Online gaming in the US is a key area of debate, as attendees will look to discuss a range of topics from the interpretation of the Wire Act, to marketing in New Jersey and interstate jackpots. This year’s program has been created in consultation with the newly established GiGse 2015 Advisory Board, includes a leading keynote speakers, a start-up Launchpad and open space format.
“It’s really important for us to learn and understand and make good business decisions based on what we think legislation should reflect or what regulation should say,” commented Michael Jones, Illinois Lottery Director. “This kind of conference allows someone like me or my staff in just a couple of days, in one location, at very little expense, get a great deal of information.”
Held at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco from April 20-22, the event brings together high-level delegates representing commercial and tribal gaming operators, regulators, policy-makers, developers and suppliers. The exhibition hall welcomes 19 international exhibitors that will be demonstrating their latest innovations, products and services to the online gaming world during the event.
Seminars include Dissecting New Jersey, Gaming for Millenials, Social casino as part of player engagement and retention, and Political Landscape. Guest speakers include Frank Luntz, CEO of Luntz Global, Brian Mattingley, CEO of 888, Matt Davey, CEO of NYX Gaming, Dan Spillane, VP and Assistant General Counsel of the NBA, Don Reilley, EVP Global Sales of Major League Gaming.
Based on feedback of attendees over the previous four events, GiGse 2015 will introduce the Open Space networking format. It allows participants to create and manage their own agenda of parallel sessions and maximise their networking opportunities. Results of each event will be made available to a company within days, so the conversation can involve all stakeholders straight away.
