he result of a new partnership between The Innovation Group, BolaVerde Media Group and Lewis and Roca, as well as an existing partnership with iGaming Business Magazine, the inaugural iGaming Congress at G2E will be a networking and educational event designed to provide land-based gaming enterprises with critical information and updates about the global igaming industry and the potential for this sector in North America.
Now in its 10th year, G2E is the premier trade show and conference event for the international gaming industry, which will be held this year from November 16-18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with the iGaming Congress at G2E scheduled for November 15-16.
"Experts are predicting the internet gambling industry will grow by more than 50 per cent in the next five years, so it's essential for professionals in the gaming industry to have a strong understanding of how this sector will shape the future of our industry," said Frank J Fahrenkopf Jr, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association.
He continued: "For 10 years, G2E has provided a unique forum for discussing the latest complex global trends affecting the industry and the introduction of the new iGaming Congress at G2E continues that legacy. This will be particularly relevant if internet gambling is legalised in the United States."
Courtney Muller, senior vice president at Reed Exhibitions, which is the co-organiser of G2E with the AGA, commented: "G2E remains prepared and poised for igaming legalisation and the strategic partnerships announced this year show how we are bringing igaming to the forefront."
