Indian Gaming Association (IGA)'s Chairman Ernie Stevens has been confirmed as being part of the 46 experts appearing at the upcoming iGB Live! Conference, which is being held July 6-7 at the RAI Amsterdam.

The program will feature 46 speakers who will be providing expert insight on key business-centric topics, to be delivered using a range of accessible formats including panel discussions, keynotes and fireside chats, a press release explains.

Previewing the conference, Naomi Barton, Portfolio Director responsible for the iGB brand, said: "The team has done superbly well in bringing together many of the foremost industry influencers and thought leaders to share their insight. We are honoured to be hosting Ernie Stevens, Chairman of the Indian Gaming Association and Victor Rocha, Editor/President of Pechanga.net/Victor Strategies."

"Tribal Casinos, which are responsible for more than half of US gaming revenues, hold the keys to market access in many North American states that are either already regulated or on the cusp of being regulated," Barton noted. "The discussion will explain how the commitment to community rather than shareholders underpins the vision of tribal gaming outlining how partnership strategies are critical to achieving market entry."

The Conference will open with an update for the iGaming industry delivered by Chris Harrison, Google's Industry Head – Financial Trading and EGaming. There will be panels dedicated to a range of topics, such as mobile UX in the US market; an examination of how Ontario's restrictive model can inspire more creative and loyalty-building marketing for other regulated markets; and a debate on the UK's long-awaited gambling White Paper featuring Wes Himes, Executive Director at the Betting and Gaming Council.

The Conference will also explore many other pressing industry issues, including the prospect of stake limits on online slots; the dangers of this pushing customers into the unregulated black market; the latest advertising restrictions in the Netherlands; Gamification, AI, Metaverse, NFTs, Crypto, Blockchain; and how iGaming can make the most out of social media.

"Our delegates want strong, topical and fresh content delivered by experts and the Conference programme certainly ticks those boxes," Barton concluded. "It is set to be among the two most informative days of the year."

iGB Live! is described as providing a forum of opportunity for industry professionals to connect and converse with key suppliers, convert expert-led insights into actionable business growth and converge with 4,000+ visitors and 250 exhibitors expected at what is one of the fastest-growing gaming expos.
