Clarion Gaming, Portfolio Director, Shona ODonnell, who was responsible for launching iGaming Super Show in 2010 and has directed the creation of iGB Live! is cautiously optimistic about the figures. She said: "We created iGB Live! in order to streamline the events calendar and in the process deliver the biggest dedicated iGaming exhibition and conference anywhere in the world. Response to the iGB Live! vision has been driven by the provision of world-class content, the presence of outstanding Key Notes and the unrivaled opportunities that have been created for delegates to meet, network and learn with peers and influencers alike."
Clarion Gaming has redefined the conference experience with the creation of iGB Live! HQ, which will represent the center of learning next week in Amsterdam, as Shona ODonnell explained: "iGB Live! Is much more than just a re-badging exercise. The team has worked hard and with great imagination to create an experience which challenges convention at every step. iGB Live! HQ features four distinct areas or rooms - The Hive, Counsel, Elevator and Boardroom. Each room offers a distinct way of learning and radically different deliveries ranging from the direct, information-based Elevator through to The Hive where delegates will be able to learn about the latest legislative changes in the most ambient environment while tasting wine and sampling cheese alongside the most significant people in the industry."
She added: "Counsel will feature Oxford Union style debates and motions all facilitated by a professional debate team while Boardroom invites inspirational thought leaders from outside the gaming universe to provide their insight. The emphasis is firmly on delivering an immersive experience and one far removed from the orthodoxy of traditional learning. Our core objective is for delegates to leave iGB Live! enthused, inspired, optimistic, energized and brimming with new ideas courtesy of the world’s biggest and arguably its most disruptive iGaming event."
