Leading figures from the European casino industry gathered in Berlin today for the first day of the European Slot Summit to learn about the new technologies and cutting edge gaming development facing the gaming floor.
Just shy of 100 influential organisations from the electronic gaming industry met to network, learn and share ideas at what has fast become Europe’s ‘must-attend’ Slot event.
With an impressive speaker line up, attendees are given the opportunity to listen to some of the leading minds in the industry. Today attendees were treated to talks from Lucien Wijsman, Paul Steelman, Dallas Orchard, Sonya Nikolova, Elena Shaterova, Sebastian Brenninkmeijer, Michael Brennan, Mark Michet and Owen Hury to name just a few.
For the first time since its conception this year the Slot Summit boasts an additional Technical conference stream aimed at focusing on the future technical needs of the industry. The speaker line-up is impressive too with speakers from organisations such as 3M, JCM Global, TransAct Technologies, CPI, BMM and much more.
Lucien Wijsman, head of content and speaker at the Slot Summit, says “We’ve built upon the feedback from attendees at last year’s Summit in Bucharest and this year I believe it is our best agenda yet covering the trends that people in the slot machine industry need to know over the next 5 years.
Are e-sports just a craze or here to stay? How will we support touchscreen technology and live games? What will the future gaming floor look like? Is there power bonusing in-play? These, and many more questions, will all be answered over the next 3 days!”
At the heart of the Summit culture is networking, and aside from the fantastic conference agenda the Summit evening entertainment, sponsored by StylGame, is set to be fantastic too! Tonight attendees will be treated to an evening at Spielbank Berlin, who have organised dinner and entertainment from Chris & Geoff Dahl, AKA the “Soul Brothers”! The brothers have performed all around the world and deliver an entertaining mix of classics from artists such as Blues Brothers, Luis Armstrong, Joe Cocker, Amy Winehouse and many more!
The next Slot Summit event is to be held in Mendoza, Argentina on the 5-8 September 2016. For more information please contact [email protected] or visit www.slotsummit.com.
