AGA President revealed as keynote iGaming Super Show speaker

(US).- Frank Fahrenkopf, President for the American Gaming Association (AGA), will serve as the keynote speaker for the upcoming iGaming Super Show. The second annual iGaming Super Show is scheduled to take place from May 24 to 26 in Dublin with over 2,500 delegates from the online gaming industry’s business-to-business sector expected to attend alongside those from the affiliate segment.

We are thrilled that Frank Fahrenkopf has agreed to come and share his expertise with attendees of the iGaming Super Show,” said Alex Pratt from iGB. “He is certainly a fascinating speaker especially with all the exciting regulatory changes currently happening in the US. We have an incredible line-up of speakers coming to the iGaming Super Show, which is a testament that the show has become the must-attend event for any serious contender in the industry.”

Fahrenkopf is ‘highly regarded as an expert and advocate of US gambling regulation and law’. Well experienced in political affairs, he gained national prominence during the 1980s while serving as Chairman for the Republican Party during six of President Ronald Reagan's eight years in the White House beginning in 1983.

Fahrenkopf’s early legal career included 17 years as a trial and gaming lawyer in his home state of Nevada while he also served as Chairman for the American Bar Association’s Committee On Gaming Law. He was also a founding trustee and President for the International Association of Gaming Attorneys, which is a global organisation of government regulators and private attorneys that acts on behalf of licensed gaming enterprises.

“The AGA fits within the iGaming Super Show model as it represents the commercial casino entertainment industry, addressing current US Federal legislative and regulatory issues affecting their members and their employees and customers such as Federal taxation, regulatory issues and travel and tourism,” read a statement from iGB. “In addition, the AGA provides leadership in addressing newly emerging US national issues and in developing industry-wide programmes on critical issues such as disordered and underage gambling.

“A leader in their field, the AGA is a well established power-house in the American gaming industry, paving the way for the sector. However, despite significant efforts by legislators, the gaming industry and key international allies, 2010 ended without the legalisation of Internet gambling in the US. With a new Congress in power and millions of Americans still placing bets online, Fahrenkopf will be exploring the prospects for moving the issue forward and how that progress or lack thereof will affect the global online gambling market,” concluded the statement.
