IGCE Europe Determined as Key to Online Gaming Industry
Industry event in Dublin features extensive and comprehensive program and roster of speakers
Friday 29th September 2006
(Hatboro, PA) —The International Gaming Conference & Expo (IGCE Europe), slated to take place November 5-7 in Dublin at the historic Fitzpatrick Castle, will feature an extensive and comprehensive program and roster of speakers, unprecedented within the industry of online sports and casino/poker/skill games wagering.
“This is the one conference,” indicated Wayne Nixon, Conference Director for The Sports Network, organizer of IGCE Europe, “to replace Montreal, Las Vegas, Amsterdam and Barcelona gatherings. These are introspective and somewhat perilous times for the industry. Corporate and executive futures are being determined on an almost daily basis; travel to the U.S. by anyone involved with online and offshore gaming has been reduced to zero; fear of dealing with U.S. players/punters permeates everywhere; stock prices are descending faster than falling rain; mergers are on hold; advertising and marketing campaigns gather dust on company shelves; I-gaming conferences are canceling from Montreal to Las Vegas; new markets are being explored; and critical legal opinions are being sought from Asia to North America. It is our opinion,” Mr. Nixon continued, “and that of many others, that the industry will sustain. It will not close down. Methodologies to endure and perpetuate, to move forward, are primary considerations. Legal advisories and debates, postures of various venues from Antigua to Malta, are a mainstay of a number of planned sessions.”
IGCE Europe has gathered together an array of speakers unequalled by any other conference attempting to address the matters facing the industry. The comprehensive program will examine online gambling, poker, bingo, skill games, affiliate marketing and relationships, sports content, horse racing, land-based competition, gaming platforms, technology, international legal and regulatory issues, marketing/brand awareness, payment solutions, Asian and European markets - appeal of soccer, cricket, rugby and other sports, the public desire for mahjong/backgammon/casino games/virtual horse racing, money laundering accusations, dealing with U.S. politics, mobile applications are the tip of the iceberg.
IGCE Europe will also feature a one day precursor European spotlight, featuring regulators and leaders from key European jurisdictions including Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, Brussels, Finland, Gibraltar and Sweden. This in-depth segment will include discussion on the possibility of de-regulation of the German market following the declaration of Oddset (the state monopoly) as un-constitutional, the implication of the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law and its recommendations, and the Italian blockage of gambling sites.

The IGCE was created to address issues within the gaming industry, from Las Vegas to London, to cover land-based ventures, offshore and online Internet efforts. Its founders are experts within the industry and IGCE sets itself apart by separating the organization from those that are conference organizers. By so doing, each conference is focused upon coverage of every topic of interest and importance to its attendees with a reach and reputation that is able to gather together the most important voices within the industry covering a range of topics unequalled anywhere else.
