We’ve hit May and if your work is related to the gaming industry that can mean only one thing – time for the iGaming Super Show to take over your life. The event has in the past been synonymous with liquor and the chance to network with quite literally every sector of the online side of the industry.
After first setting up base in Prague two years ago it has now found its place in the home of Guinness, girls with sexy accents and leprechauns – Dublin, Ireland. This year’s incarnation of the show takes place 22nd to 25th May and as usual it’s 100 percent free. In addition to the usual conference floor and seminars there are a number of new features and we thought it best to ask our readership what they were most looking forward to.
Unfortunately for the organizers it seems that conference goers are way more bothered about getting sozzled with a leprechaun as 40 percent of those polled answered, where’s Sheamus?! I want a Guinness.
Of the remaining new features that the conference has to offer 27 percent decided that a free lunch was the second best behind getting drunk. Need to soak up that alcohol after all. Remember though – eating’s cheating!
One new track that has been implemented at this year’s Super Show is one focusing on betting trends and strategies. Of those asked, 20 percent said this was the new thing they were most looking forward to.
Following a little further behind still were the free learning clinics with 10 percent. They are in place between 12pm and 4pm in order to give attendees one-on-one consultations with specialists across a number of areas including SEO, PPC, WordPress and Payments.
Networking is always a huge part of these conferences and our sample recognized this with 3 percent voting speed networking as the thing they’re most looking forward to.
Those who are thinking about visiting the conference didn’t seem too enthralled at the prospect of either the Professional iGaming Management Education (PRiME) or Financial Exhibition Zone as both received 0 percent of the vote.
This week’s poll seeks to find out the answer to one question that will make or break the sports betting industry’s summer – how will England get on at Euro 2012.
