Events agency now gearing up for Prague Gaming Summit on June 21st

European Gaming, Hipther Agency’s Central and Eastern European betting and gaming media platform, has celebrated its return to live events with a resounding success at the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit.

The summit was held on May 12, 2022, in Vilnius, Lithuania, at the eco-friendly Radisson Blu Royal Astorija Hotel, located in the Baltic capital’s UNESCO-certified old town.

The fifth edition of Hipther’s boutique European Gaming summit marked the return of the Baltic region’s first in-person gaming event since the onset of COVID in 2020.

Dedicated to providing a platform for discussion between the two regions’ regulatory authorities, operators and suppliers, the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit featured a full day’s panel discussions and presentations from leading figures in the iGaming industry, totalling more than 80 industry delegates.

After promising a hugely impressive roster of regional thought leaders and regulatory authorities, Hipther delivered, with the likes of Dainis Niedra (Managing Director Central & Eastern Europe at Enlabs), Kaido Ulejev (Commercial Director CEECA at Betsson Group) and Maria McDonald (Managing Partner at Nordic Gambling).

Providing a unique open platform for stakeholders and industry operators, as well as a wealth of networking opportunities for gaming executives, the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit was sponsored by Tom Horn, Endorphina and Nordic Gambling.

Alongside the summit were the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG), launched in 2019, which have become the most important gaming industry awards in the region.

Totalling 28 nomination categories, BSG awards were established to provide an independent, fair and representative awards event that recognises significant achievements across the Baltic and Scandinavian gaming industries, and this year was no different.

Among the winners of the wide selection of highly competitive categories, were Betsson, who was awarded the Best Sports Betting Operator in the Nordics 2022 title, whilst Altenar won the Best Sports Betting Provider in The Baltics 2022, as well as BetGames taking home Best Live Casino Provider.

Commenting on the success of the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, Zoltan Tuendik, Founder and Head of Business and Events at European Gaming and Hipther Agency said:

“It was a pleasure to provide the industry with the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit – proving to be the region’s first proper in-person gaming conference in three years.

“Whilst we have always been aware of the value of the networking opportunities, panel discussions and BSG awards, we were thrilled to see the demand of the summit translated into a sell-out event, with a wonderful opportunity to bring everyone back together.

“With just one month to go, we are now gearing up for the Prague Gaming Summit, which has also grown year on year. This is a key event in the Central and Eastern European region and one of our longest-standing conferences.

“We aim to bring a wealth of information within quality networking spaces as well as a focus on the DACH region’s main regulatory updates.”

The Prague Gaming Summit is Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)’s largest betting and gaming industry conference.

The fifth edition of the show, organised by European Gaming and Hipther Agency, will take place on the 21st June 2022 at Vienna House in Prague’s Andel district, starting at 08.45am.

The event already has record number of sponsors confirmed, including Tom Horn Gaming and Nordic Gambling. With a limited number of sponsorship packages still available, interested companies can contact: Andrada Marginean, B2B Sales Manager at Hipther Agency, by email on [email protected].
