We are announcing major developments and implementations for the upcoming years.

 

We are ready to reveal the calendar of events for 2020 and also some of the major developments we will be implementing in the upcoming years.

The 2020 Calendar

First off, in 2020, we are once again organizing 4 conferences in different regions, each one targeting a different audience and topics.

The already confirmed dates and conferences for which you can already register are:

  • Prague Gaming Summit – 6 March 2020 – Register here
  • MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit and the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards – 7 May 2020 – Register here

The confirmed conferences and proposed dates for the second semester are:

  • CEEGC and CEEG Awards Budapest – Proposed date: 29 September 2020 – Pre-Register here
  • European Gaming Congress and the Southern European Gaming Awards – Proposed date: 5 November 2020 – Athens, Greece – Pre-Register here

We are also happy to reveal the plans which include the implementation of measures that will make us further stand out from all gambling industry and non-gambling industry conferences in Europe.

Sustainability

The first measures have been added to have a positive impact on the environment and respect the principles of sustainable development. The action taking is the direct result of a two-year experiment which was observed by our team at European Gaming Media and Events.

Starting with 2019, we have experimented with recycling the badges, lanyards, flyers, magazines and have seen that it was well taken by our delegates. While our conferences are boutique style and are capped at 125-150 delegates, we have managed to save up to 45% from the lanyards which were later washed and cleaned by eco-friendly washing services, then reused at later conferences. We encourage large event organizers to also try and take action as it is certainly a good way of preserving our ecosystem. We are also encouraging sponsors to opt for earth-friendly when it comes to promotional materials.” commented Zoltán Tűndik, Head of Business at European Gaming Media and Events.

While recycling and reusing certain materials at the conferences are important steps towards achieving sustainability, the team is also sending a clear message about how conference organizers can directly impact the conservation of the planet’s ecosystem and biodiversity.

Starting 2018, we have asked the delegates to fill out a field when registering in which they would state their dietary need and we are amazed to see that the choice of plant-based foods has risen with 30% in 2019. While some might argue at this point, but meat-eating is one of the biggest environmental hazards facing our planet. So, for 2020 we decided to go for a fully plant-based menu at all our conferences and we are happy to say that we have the full support of the venues which think that is a great idea and already working on delicious plant-based meals for our delegates to enjoy in Prague, Tallinn, Budapest, and Athens” added Zoltán.

Gender Diversity

In 2020, the programs of the conferences will also embrace the subject of Gender Diversity in the gambling industry and will have special panel discussions in which female leaders and role models are invited to join the evolving conversation of achieving true equality within the sector.

Those interested to join the Gender Diversity panel discussions are invited to send an email to [email protected] in order to be included.

 

Goals for 2025 are HIPTHER

European Gaming Media and Events will join sister brand PICANTE Media and Events under a parent brand which further expands the exposure palette of services the company offers.

The parent brand is titled HIPTHER Agency and starting from November 2019 the platform serves as a gateway for ticket/delegate pass purchasing for events organized under both brands, press release service contracting, outsourcing and more. For more details, visit hipther.agency

Under HIPTHER Agency, we will organize 6 conferences (4 gambling + 2 in tech) in 2020 and the future plans include launching several more in order to reach a minimum of 12 conferences yearly by 2025. Among the future plans, we are also planning expansion into North America and Asia.

With this occasion, we are now offering investment opportunities to those interested in helping us implement further projects that are in the pipeline. For more details contact [email protected]

MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit returns as Europe’s first live event
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Third annual Baltic conference to take place in Tallinn on 6th August

MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, the Baltic and Nordic region’s largest betting and gaming industry conference, has been announced as Europe’s first post-lockdown live event.

With the majority of EU and EEA member states now able to travel to Estonia restriction free, the summit will take place in Estonia on the 6th August 2020 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn, starting 9:00 am.

Building on last year’s hugely successful iteration in Vilnius, Lithuania, this year’s lineup is set to bring together the region’s key stakeholders with the Baltic’s regulatory authorities in a day of panel discussions, roundtables and networking.

With the return of sports betting, industry innovation and payments hot on the agenda, the day’s speaking tracks will be joined by representatives from the region’s tier one suppliers and operators, including Kaido Ulejev (Commercial Director CEECA at Betsson Group), Nadiya Attard (Director of Sales at Relax Gaming) and Robert Dowling (Chief Commercial Officer at Singular).

The conference’s compliance contingent will be represented by delegates from the Lithuanian and Estonian Ministries of Finance, Latvia’s Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspectorate and Nordic Gambling, who will be updating on the latest in regional developments.

As in 2019, the day’s agenda will be capped by the inaugural Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards) ceremony, honouring high-flyers in the Baltics and Nordics. In recognition of the participation of the event’s delegates, winners will be announced from a vote drawn over the day from the summit’s attendees.

Commenting on the return of live industry events, Zoltan Tuendik, Co-Founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency said: “We’re delighted to again bring together industry stakeholders from across the Baltic and Scandinavian region to set the agenda for the year ahead.

“The MARE BALTICUM summit has firmly established itself as one of the Baltic region’s most informative events – and we’ve gone the extra mile to make sure we have a great environment for all.”

With venues in Estonia now able to operate at 50% of their standard capacity, the team has nevertheless limited the conference to 80 delegates to make it comfortable for all those taking part.

The official shortlist of the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards 2020 is now live.

 

It has been a hard and stressful period for some of the companies who battled daily by reaching out to their clients base and asking for feedback via votes to help them climb the charts and be included in the shortlist for the 2020 edition of the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards).

During June, the industry had the chance to cast their votes online for their favorite operators, software suppliers, and connected service providers and help them reach the Top 5 for their respective categories.

The online voting closed on the 30th of June at midnight and we are happy to announce that despite the critical period the industry is facing, there have been a total of 9641 votes submitted during the session. There have been many categories in which the number of votes has been at the exact results for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and even 5th place. All companies who made the shortlist should feel proud of this achievement.

The shortlists for each category can be found below and as mentioned in the statement, the winners will be decided by the attending delegates via final voting session at the third edition of the conference and awards that will be held on the 6th of August in Tallinn at Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn.
