Expos, seminars, summits and awards
With the spring finally here and with the Easter celebrations not far away, things seem to be slowing down as far as online gambling events are concerned. The rush to create the first US online gambling offer is in full swing and the Cyprus gambling changes seem to follow the same path, but do it in a much faster way. What really stands out about this month is what will happen towards the end when several expos and conferences will take place which will cover all the areas of the industry.
The Global iGaming Seminar and Expo, also known as GiGse, will have its 13th edition this April and will be held in San Francisco. The event will bring together the biggest names in the US gambling industry as well as new faces that are looking to get into the market from the very start. The doors will open on the 23rd and there will also be a Social Casino Summit running at the same time so there are more things to check out. This will start on the 24th and will focus on the subject which has been making a lot of waves recently – social gambling. The possibilities offered nowadays by the large social networks are simply too big to be ignored by gambling operators. Both events will end on the 25th so make sure you cover as much ground as possible between the two and get an idea of how online gambling will change in the future.
mGaming & mSports
The mGaming and mSports Summits will be held on April 24 in London and attendance is mandatory for those interested in what many gambling operators consider the future – mobile gaming. The boom of affordable mobile devices combined with the apps that allow you to pretty much do anything on your smartphone makes gambling on the move a very popular trend. This is expected to continue to grow in the next couple of years and this event will most likely present some of the ideas that will drive it to a whole new level. The summit will cover both sectors at the same time since they both focus on mobile gambling and how operators can take full advantage of it.
Once the summits are over, the fun starts with the mGaming Awards which will take place on the same day and will present the best companies in the industry that have managed to stand out through innovative offers and pristine services. The ceremony is expected to be a very luxurious event that marks another great year of mobile gaming as well as set the tone for the next year.
There will certainly be some big casino news headlines coming out of these events so even if you don’t get to make it to San Francisco or London this April, you will still be able to keep up with all the new trends as far as online gambling is concerned. The major things that everyone is talking about right now are of course social and mobile gaming so these events will fit in perfectly with the current trends.
Almost everyone nowadays has an account on at least one social network and while some attempts have already been made to encourage users to play gambling games, there hasn’t been a full set of offers made available yet. On the other hand, mobile gaming is expanding every day as software developers create new and exciting games that look just as good as they would on a computer screen. The one thing that is certain is that players want to always have their favorite casino games on hand, be it on their preferred social network or right on their mobile phone.
