social gambling conference 20125 November 2012 (London, UK)- Today, the organisers of the Social Gambling Conference have announced that Venture Beat‘s Social Gaming lead commentator Dean Takahashi, Hussein Chahine, Founder & CEO of Yazino, Brian Morgan, Executive Director Online Gaming at WMS, Vaughan Lewis, Analyst at  Morgan Stanley and Joost van Dreunen, Co-Founder & CEO of SuperData will be joining the elite line up of speakers at November’s conference.

Dean is recognized as one of the leading voices of Venture Beat, and leads their GamesBeat editorial team. At the Social Gambling Conference, Dean will be discussing ‘The Real Social Economy and Making the Next Billion’.

Hussein Chahine, Founder & CEO of Yazino has joined the Monetization panel as an expert to contemplate different paths to the monetization of social casino-style games. “Social gaming is the single most important opportunity, and possibly threat, to the iGaming industry. As the fastest growing social game genre, social casino gaming is forcing the historically slow-moving iGaming industry to look for innovative solutions to catch up with the market,” commented Hussein. ”Yazino believes that the future of gaming lies in synchronous game play accessible anytime, anywhere, and that smartphones and tablets will deliver the future of these social interactive experiences. I’m looking forward to getting involved in the Social Gambling Conference to discuss with the industry how the two sectors converge.”

Brian Morgan, the Executive Director Online Gaming at WMS and Vaughan Lewis, Analyst at Morgan Stanley will present the topic ‘Big Casino’s interest in Social Games’. They will provide insight into why large traditional gambling companies are interested in social gaming.

Joost van Dreunen, Co-Founder & CEO of SuperData, completes the line up of the CEO Panel. He will join Brock Pierce, Lior Shiff, Raf Keustermans and Rich Roberts to discuss where social gambling will be in 12 to 24 months, where the opportunities are and what roadblocks await you on the not-so-distant horizon.

The Social Gambling Conference on November 16th at Dexter House, London is the first show of its kind, and will cover many topics including; the transition between social and real money gambling, the regulation of social games, monetization and the opportunities in social gambling. But perhaps most importantly, the conference provides an insight into where the leaders and innovators in the space are directing the industry.
