Cutting-edge betting and gaming media platform GamingAmericas.com has announced its speaker list and sponsors ahead of its bitesize virtual conference, Gaming Americas Q1 Meetup.

Over 800 participants have already registered for the 28th January event, which features a host of leading industry figures from both sides of the Americas, spanning the casino, sports betting, lottery, data and regulatory industries.

Zoltan Tuendik, Co-Founder of Gaming Americas, believes that the insights on offer at the bitesize conference will prove highly valuable:

“The number of sign-ups is testament to the high level of interest from the industry in a wide range of territories that we consider to offer some of the world’s biggest growth opportunities.

“This event may be slimmed-down, but there is certainly no shortage of quality within the line-up of speakers. With key regulatory updates from North America and a deep dive into Latin and Central America, anyone who is looking to gain traction in these markets cannot afford to miss out.”

Founded in March 2020 as an all-encompassing hub for the gambling and gaming sectors, GamingAmericas.com’s industry conferences have been chiefly developed by the publication’s advisory board.

Its collective leadership includes the former Deputy President of Sportradar US, Counsel to the Governor of New Jersey, and an ex-senior strategist for the Presidential campaigns of Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.
