Riga Gaming Congress 2017
Much like previous gaming congresses that Smile-Expo organized, the event in Latvia will tackle the different aspects of online and physical casinos. This also includes sportsbooks and daily fantasy sports. The congress will also touch upon innovative tech that is making headway in the iGaming industry. These techs include cryptocurrency payment, use of blockchain technology, and VR casinos.
People who can attend Riga Gaming Congress are not just citizens of Latvia. There will be CEOs, project leaders, managers, affiliates, operators, and other people connected to different iGaming markets around the world.
Because the event will have an international audience, online gambling software and hardware producers are sure to present their latest work sin the congress. This is a good opportunity for operators or others with vested interest in the iGaming market to get a first-hand look at any new products. The experience allows operators to know if this could help build their brand.
The visitors of the congress make this a good chance for everyone to build a strong network. Affiliate program owners can find potential partners who are also looking to be an affiliate for online gambling sites. Programmers and developers can use the event to find employment. Project leads or directors might be looking for talent during the congress.
The presentations in the event will provide some useful insights on today’s iGaming market. Many of these can help casino, sportsbook, or daily fantasy sports site owners.
One of the presentations set in October is about casino marketing. Carlo Pagan, CEO at Casino Campione D’Italia, will provide the key elements of marketing strategies that can contribute to business growth. Another presentation is about the use of cryptocurrency in Bitcoin casinos. This can be helpful to operators looking to add a Bitcoin payment option to their website.
Focusing on the Latvian market
A good portion of the Riga Gaming Congress program will cover Latvia’s iGaming market. The first presentation will tackle the gambling legislation in Latvia vis-a-vis UK regulations. To expand on the first presentation, there is another one that talks about opening an account and obtaining a license in Latvia. Another presentation covers the sportsbook market in Latvia and why American Sports is gaining grounds among bettors in the region.
These presentations are a big deal since Latvia has a nearly untapped market of people with an appetite for gambling. The jurisdiction IP ban on unlicensed online gambling sites makes license casinos the only choice for locals to make wagers on.
Meanwhile, Riga Gaming Congress 2017 is sponsored by Axioma and Slotegrator.
