IS THE ONLINE CASINO INDUSTRY BENEFITING DURING SPORTS TOURNAMENT DISRUPTION?

Sports betting enthusiasts are spending more time playing casino games and with all the land-based casino lockdowns, the online casino industry should be benefiting the most. Among the verticals that have seen an increased activity is the online poker industry. While live tournaments are being canceled, the poker players are moving online and resurrecting the online poker industry. But, is this the real case?

The experts of the “IS THE ONLINE CASINO INDUSTRY BENEFITING DURING SPORTS TOURNAMENT DISRUPTION PERIOD” panel discussion, which will be moderated by Andrius Gabnys (Attorney At Law – Gabnys Law Firm), is joined by Beyza Orazova (Head of Sales, iGaming at DIMOCO Carrier Billing), Vadim Potapenko (Head of sales at Slotegrator), Dmitry Starostenkov (CEO at Evenbet Gaming – the leading poker platform provider), Jan Urbanec (CEO at Endorphina), Vladimir Malakchi (Chief Business Development Officer at Evoplay Entertainment), and Nadiya Attard (Director of Sales at Relax Gaming).

THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY DURING COVID-19

Social distancing is keeping people in their homes and with this comes more online spending. The fiat currencies are doing good during this crisis, however, cryptocurrencies are losing their value fast. We will analyze if there are growths in the transaction volumes and how the spend is increasing during this period but also keeping an eye on cybersecurity.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Simon Planzer (Partner at PLANZER LAW) and will be joined by Simon Dorsen (Director of Gaming at OKTO – Gaming Fintech solutions), Vytautas Karalevičius (Co-founder at Bankera), Vasilije Lekovic (Director of Gaming at Trustly), Saulius Racevičius (CEO at ConnectPay), Olga Golikova (Head of Billing at Parimatch), and Marc Riedi (Director, paysafecard Switzerland, a Paysafe Company).

WILL ADVERTISEMENT BANNING STILL BE ENFORCED AFTER COVID-19?

While battling against COVID-19, European countries are spending a huge amount of incomes and once the battle is over, the state budget has to be supplemented. Will legislators consider lifting advertisement bans in order to allow operators and affiliates to relaunch their activities and start running the business, while paying taxes.

Compliance experts and lawyers, regulators are going to join the “WILL ADVERTISEMENT BANNING STILL BE ENFORCED AFTER COVID-19?” panel discussion, which will be moderated by Dr. Joerg Hofmann (Partner at MELCHERS LAW).

The discussion will be joined by Sören Meius (Estonian Ministry of Finance), Morten Ronde (CEO at Danish Online Gambling Association and Managing Partner at Nordic Gambling), Joe Ewens (Managing Editor of GamblingCompliance at VIXIO), Gustaf Hoffstedt (Secretary-General at the Swedish Trade Association for Online Gambling), and Ivan Liashenko (Chief Marketing Officer at Parimatch).

As mentioned above the virtual edition of #MBGS2020VE will be held on the 7th of May and will gather 300 gambling industry professionals who can attend virtually from their internet browser. The gathering will allow virtual delegates to network at virtual tables in the virtual deal room and conduct 1 on 1 meetings with their prospects/clients/partners.

The conference will start at 9:30 AM CET on the 7th of May and the participants will gain access to the platform on 23 April.

European Gaming’s leading conference portfolio to be complemented with Virtual Quarterly Meetups starting 2021.

 

There is no doubt that virtual gatherings will still be a key activity for content sharing and networking in 2021 as well and we are adapting our agenda accordingly by launching the virtual European Gaming Quarterly Meetups series.

The quarterly meetups will complement the yearly conferences that will be hosted (if allowed) in hybrid formats, and will be strategically coordinated by the European Gaming Way Seers (Advisory Board).

We observed, tested and now implementing a special format to our audience. The idea is to continue brining an efficient communication channel that allows participants to stay up to date in a comfortable way with the latest updates. Only the vital information will be shared during the meetups and we are also allowing the participants to add to the topics. It is important for the industry to share their knowledge among each other in an efficient way that also creates a conversation that leads to opinion forming. This temporary abnormal is pushing us out of our comfort zone of hosting traditional conferences and he future looks brighter than it did in April-May 2020, even some might argue this”, stated Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency.

Good morning Hipthers!

Digital events have been key for the industry this year and we’ve made it a priority to not only keep things going with our hybrid conferences but to also make sure that we’re able to adapt and offer the latest in technology to make sure that the format never gets old.

Last week’s Congress and PICANTE MARKETING Summit smashed all our expectations, and we want to thank each and every one of you for taking part to make it truly brilliant!

With more than 500 registrants and more than 3,000 viewers over the festival via our streams, it was truly an honor to have close to 100 brilliant speakers draw up a virtual chair and offer some of the industry’s best insights on Europe.

We also saw plenty of firsts at the Congress, with our new Altenar-sponsored interactive panel discussions topping out at more than 400 viewers at both sessions – and based on your feedback, we’ll definitely be doing more to bring the audience into the panel conversations at our upcoming events.

Our (newly launched) virtual networking platform also had the chance to make its trial appearance, and we’ll be doing plenty of work to develop it in the coming months to ensure we can start making more connections for our community during the coming winter!

Of course, these events could never happen without our fantastic sponsors, and special thanks goes to Altenar (Registration Sponsor) and Golden Race (Gold Sponsors), as well as Trustly, SoftSwiss, BetGames.TV and Nordic Gambling.

Looking ahead, we’re already planning our live calendar for Q1 2021 – with our Prague Gaming Summit 2021 and MARE BALTICUM going ahead on-location as planned, as well as plenty of virtual appearances for those who can’t make it!

Here is a small break-down of the hybrid events we are planning for 2021:

Prague Gaming Summit – 30 March – (Registrations are open)
MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit and BSG Awards – 13 May (Riga)
CEEGC Budapest – End of September
