October is the month of conference and acronym mayhem, likely one of the most hectic months of the year for anyone who is involved in the online gambling industry. Kicking off with an event dedicated to the US gambling market in Vegas, followed by three conferences in Barcelona and a little poker in between, we’re going to need the month of November for recovery after this madness is over.
As if that would ever happen.
On to Las Vegas…
With the tagline of, “We see OPPORTUNITY in the MIDST of Change”, we’re not sure how you could even think about missing the Global Gambling Expo (G2E). G2E is THE event of the year dedicated to the United States land based and online gambling market, one of the most exciting and sought after markets in the industry at the moment.
Well, that and the Hoff is rumored to be in attendance.
The Barcelona Affiliate Conference (BAC) is back in warm and sunny Spain and its a must attend event for anyone working in the online gambling affiliate industry. This year organizers iGaming Business have decided to incorporate iGB Espana, an event dedicated to the Spanish speaking iGaming sector, into the BAC so there will be a little something for everyone AND all affiliates go for free.
Continuing on with our Spanish theme, the World Regulatory Briefing (WrB) Spain will be taking place the day before EiG begins, a niche event focusing on the regulatory status and online gambling market in Spain.
The European iGaming Congress & Expo (EiG), now in its 11th year, is a high level event dedicated to everything and anything happening in the online gambling industry around the world. Due to popular demand, EiG has moved back to Barcelona and will serve as an excellent opportunity to learn, network and enjoy some Spanish style afterhours.
