The Global Poker Index European Poker Conference joins the 4th Annual Malta iGaming Summit (SiGMA) at the Malta Fairs & Convention Centre for the first time since birth.

We are going to have to wait a little longer for the 2nd Annual Global Poker Index (GPI) European Poker Conference, but the wait will be worth it.

The GPI European Poker Conference joins SiGMA 2017Europe’s most significant poker pow-wow will take place as part of the 4th Annual Malta iGaming Summit (SiGMA) Nov 22-25, 2017 at the Malta Fairs & Convention Centre.

What is SiGMA?

It’s not a UK kitchen manufacturer, an American chemical company, or a set of business techniques – it is one of the largest iGaming shows in the world, and one of the reasons the GPI European Poker Conference and SiGMA go together like Jesse Pinkman and Walter White.

The GPI European Poker Conference takes place November 23, sharing the day with the likes of Breakout Gaming Group CGO, Gian Perroni talking about sportsbooks and eSports; a host of iGaming companies waffling on about the affiliate business, and an in-depth discussion on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

Alex Dreyfus and his team will divide the conference into five 45-minute panel discussions. The conference delegates will be holding a full and frank discussion about what the European poker industry is doing right (and wrong), attempting to predict the outlook for the future of European poker and bringing the minds of poker’s bigwigs together to share ideas and thoughts on the market.

The panellists and the topics won’t be released for a while yet, but you can expect a presence from all the leading poker operators, media members, and a smattering of professional poker players, including, I imagine, an appearance or two from the stars of the Global Poker League (GPL).

In previous years, the GPI European Poker Conference has been the prelude to the European Poker Awards, and the decision to move the conference in the middle of the SiGMA Summit means the GPI will almost certainly hold the awards ceremony as a standalone entity.

More news to follow on that score when it arrives by carrier pigeon.
