Days away from July's iGB Live! event in Amsterdam, Slotegrator's Managing Director Yana Khaidukova shared her views on the importance of this showcase and in-person contact. This year, the company expects to make new connections, catch up with partners and clients, and see what new products are on the market.
Khaidukova explained in an interview provided by event organizer Clarion Gaming that iGB Live! is one of the most important gaming events in Slotegrator's calendar. "We look forward to meeting everyone, showcasing our new products and doing lots of networking. Success will look like an overcrowded Slotegrator stand."
She also described iGB as a "high-quality event" that is "very well-organized." "Everyone has interesting insights to share", she said in regards to companies and people participating at the expo.
Khaidukova concurred with an independent survey that placed the showcase among the top 2% of international b2b events: "I'm not surprised at all to hear it's in the top 2%. iGB is one of the industry's biggest shows, and it gathers together so many gambling companies and professionals, so for sure it's right at the top of our list of favorite events."
"At Slotegrator, we believe in the power of personal contact, offline networking, and face-to-face meetings, so it was a great pleasure to be able to participate in iGB last year," the executive added. "People missed offline events for sure"
According to the Managing Director, gambling is an extremely fast-changing industry, with one of its main challenges being to learn how to adapt to all of the changes as fast as possible, create highly adaptable and customizable products, and build flexible teams. "But with high volatility always come big opportunities," she remarked.
Khaidukova further told Clarion that the company is still targeting Eastern Europe, but is also focused on Africa, Asia, and Western Europe, "and especially LatAm." The business' new platform is fully optimized for all of these markets "with games that these audiences love and the payment methods they prefer."
iGB is taking place at RAI Amsterdam, July 6-7, bringing together the gambling industry in tandem with Clarion Gaming. More than 4,000 visitors and 250 exhibitors are expected at the expo, with Slotegrator set to showcase at stand M40.
