The 11th i-Gaming Forum, Scandinavia’s established Decision Maker-conference for online gaming, has announced its first 20 speakers for the 2019 conference on April 11. For the first time taking place at the Stockholm International Fairs.
The big difference compared to previous years, is that the i-Gaming Forum will now be part of the new comprehensive ”Gamers United”-concept, which will also include an AI/Tech Forum, Affiliates Forum, Blockchain/Crypto Forum and eSports Forum.
The opening keynote for the i-Gaming Forum 2019 will be Camilla Rosenberg, the Swedish Regulator (Director General of The Swedish Gambling Authority).
“With well over 100 applications in for a Swedish license for the January 1 reregulation, and many licenses already granted, everyone wants to hear what’s going on from “the horse’s mouth’,” says Content Director Robert Okpu.
The chairman of the event is once again Bengt Jönsson, former six-year CEO of state-run operator ATG. Michael Caselli, founder of iGaming Business, will be moderating the main CEO Panel.
Confirmed speakers for the 11th i-Gaming Forum, Stockholm 11 April 2019 include:

“We believe that this year’s forum will be more relevant than ever, as Sweden finally reregulates, and one of iGamings traditional strongholds, Stockholm, rises up to the occasion,” says Gamers United Chief Organizer Goran G. Kandic.
The i-Gaming Forum is a must-go for anyone who wish to dive deeper into the actual implications of the Swedish iGaming regulations and network with C-Suite professionals as well as some of the most innovative start-ups and affiliates in the field.
