iGaming Conference Calendar

2017 iGaming Conference Calendar

London Affiliate Conference 2017 Totally ICE Gaming 2017 VIGE 17 Prague Gaming Summit 2017 Amsterdam Affiliate Conference 2017

As the online gambling industry continues to get bigger, the events get bigger and the number of events increases all the time. For the most part there are a few groups of conference organizers that focus primarily in iGaming. They are iGB, SiGMA, EEGaming and Clarion Events. Combined these events will keep anyone fully busy and always on the road. Maybe you can’t attend them all but it’s worth knowing about them to plan your schedule to see which events you can attend.

Why attend a conference?

There are 3 main reasons why people like going to conferences: networking and making new business contacts, learning something new and the social aspect of traveling and visiting a new place.

Travel, Parties and Socializing

The travel part is of course subject to debate as some people enjoy the travel and get to spend some time in a new city while others treat conferences as purely business and don’t make any time for any parties or getting to experience their destination. A good conference should have some type of social itinerary and hopefully they’ll throw a good party. There are always going to be people that hate this part of conferences and if you don’t like it, you don’t have to go out. There are others that not only enjoy the parties but claim their best business has come from the networking opportunities of meeting someone in a social environment.

Learning something new

In a perfect world, you’ll always learn something new from a conference especially if there are seminars and speakers but take this with a grain of salt. For conference organizers, it’s extremely difficult getting other people to present and offer something of value to the people attending. Some speakers are worth the price of attendance on their own but others perhaps are not good at teaching something new and are more concerned with selling themselves as consultant or spending more time pitching the product or service they sell or represent. For the most part, if you are new to igaming then you might learn a lot along the way and the seminars might be useful.

Networking

Without a doubt, the #1 benefit of attending a show should be networking. For some people this is an easy thing while for others this is a stressful ordeal as it’s not always easy walking up to strangers and trying to make friends. There are some that take the networking part a little too seriously and make you feel like a number so don’t be like that. Sure you want to exchange as many business cards as possible but remember quality over quantity. 1 good connection is better than 20 watered down connections where you made a poor first impression. Not everyone likes being sold to so be a person first and foremost.
