The 3rd edition of the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit will take place on 7 May 2020 in Tallinn, Estonia.

 

Our team is excited to announce that registrations are open for the 3rd edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, the leading boutique style gambling industry conference of the Baltic and Scandinavian region.

The conference will take place on the 7th of May 2020 at Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn, and the team is preparing some major updates.

“There is no doubt the MARE BALTICUM has become a tradition in the Baltic and Scandinavian region and we are blessed with the support of open-minded regulators and government officials who are interested in hearing what the industry has to say. In 2020 we will once again bring an interesting lineup of speakers coming from all sides of the gambling industry and of course give the awards for the top companies in the region via BSG Awards” stated Zoltán Tűndik, Head of Business at European Gaming Media and Events.

The MARE BALTICUM platform will continue its mission with which it has been launched in 2018 and is committed to bringing together industry shareholders and government officials from the Baltic and Scandinavian region on a yearly base.

After touring Riga and Vilnius, the conference is now heading to another Baltic destination and this time Estonia will take center stage as the host of the yearly gathering.

The agenda will include regulatory focused discussion mixed with trends of the gambling industry and the region, while the selection of speakers will once again include local/experienced speakers. In 2020, the aim is to bring start-up operators to the stage and also continue the panel discussion style with at least one panelist being an operator from the market vs. gambling authority and controlling authority discussing issues and changes in the market

“MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit reconfirmed the Organizers’ efficacy, to bring together the region’s main stakeholders, for structured and multi-faceted interactive discussions. In parallel to the educational aspect, though, it offered the chance of personalized networking, in a relaxed and unpretentious way. I look already forward to the next edition!”

“MBGS is focused on people looking for collaboration with well-known companies in the Gaming industry.”

Lyubomira Petrova (Chief Marketing Officer at UltraPlay):

“I had the pleasure to speak at Mare Balticum Gaming Summit and present why eSports is going to play a key role in the gambling industry in 2020 and beyond. Discussing what the future holds for the industry, we see the tremendous growth of eSports and its importance in terms of betting and player’s engagement.”

Margo Prylypska (Director of International Sales at Hyperion Tech):

“We would like to thank Zoltan and Betty for another great event! The organization was at a very high level, great timing and amazing people attending the event! It is definitely the best place to meet good old friends and partners, as well as find new ones and of course, get insights about things happening in the iGaming industry!”

Jaka Repanšek (Media and Gaming Expert):

“Great event. Great timing. Great location.”

Domenico Mazzola (Commercial Director at Altenar):

“MBGS was a pearl in the sea of so many conferences around the world. Such interesting panels! Zoltan and Betty did a great job inviting so many relevant people from the industry, regulators, and from governments putting all of them together to discuss regulations, exchanging ideas, and solutions on how different countries regulate the gambling sector. A must-attend event!”

Kristina Bučinskaitė (Customer Experience Manager at ConnectPay):

“This is a very nice initiative to create and develop such kind of event in the Baltic countries.  By working together and establishing a strong base no matter is it compliance or marketing, we build the right environment for the future development of the business and society.
Baltics are small but at the same time are very different in many aspects. It’s becoming challenging to replicate the previous experience in the new markets and such events are here to help us. Organizational wise – on a very high level. It’s hard to say where did we benefit more – from the main event of from the networking parts.”

Sara Urbanovicova (Chief Commercial Officer at Tom Horn Gaming):

“This is a fantastic event and it is sure to establish itself as a must-attend conference in the diary for the online gaming community.

We’re sure to return next year!”

Andrius Gabnys (founding attorney at Gabnys Law Firm, Ambassador of the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit):

“MBGS2 was literally a very pleasing event. Both content-wise and visually. It’s one of those examples when you can feel it goes smooth throughout the whole event, where the interest of the audience is not lost somewhere in the middle, and you don’t find yourself waiting for something else, other than what is happening on stage. It’s where the organizational talent of Zoltan and Betty really kicks in. This second edition proves that the idea of having the Baltics and Scandinavia in a single event is spot on. It was a pleasure to serve as an ambassador of this event and already looking forward to the third edition.”

Andrius Čepkus (Chief Business Development Officer at Ondato):

„The event was very well organized. Especially networking breaks and how participants were seated, which opened many new networking and business opportunities. The content was very up to date and valuable. Thanks again for the great experience!“
