When the iGaming Super Show touches down in Dublin, Ireland, in May, it’s likely that the talk of the fair city will probably still be concerning where on earth Calvin Ayre’s 50th birthday celebrations is actually going to be taking place. Stop right there though people! Remember…there’s a conference taking place.
Sorry about that, don’t know what came over us there. Although conferences means parties and the Super Show will likely be remembered for its parties rather than the conference itself. Today, though, sees the conference announcing a partnership with Meet In Ireland, the official Meetings, Incentive, Conventions, and Exhibitions (MICE) brand for Republic of Ireland.
“Business Tourism and particularly conferences and events are a key strategic area for Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority”, says Keith McCormack, Head of Business Tourism and Events. “Dublin will welcome a large number of international delegates for the upcoming iGaming Supershow and we are confident that the city will showcase not only the best of Irish hospitality but also its exemplary capacity for large scale event organisation”.
The conference, organized by iGaming Business, is expecting over 2000 iGaming delegates from a number of different jurisdictions from around the world.
A number of the biggest names in the online industry, such as Google, Facebook, eBay, and Paypal have set up shop in the city being dubbed the Internet Capital of Europe, another strong reason for the expo to be taking place in this part of the world.
Alex Pratt, Head of iGaming Business, said: “We wanted to capitalise on the fact that so many gaming and online companies have set base in Ireland, not to mention Dublin’s legendary hospitality”
How far that legendary hospitality goes is unclear but if Guinness is one of their hospitality options then we’re in!
