The iGaming events calendar has already been full to the brim this year, with some of the biggest iGaming events taking place across the globe. The good news is that there’s plenty more to get excited about in the coming months. 

Whether you’re an iGaming enthusiast, an operator or an iGaming professional, you should attend at least one of these upcoming gaming events.

Specifics of iGaming Events

Before deciding to attend the very next gaming event you can, it’s worth knowing the specifics of each event so you can choose the most appropriate one. 

Scale: International vs Regional Events

International events like ICE and SiGMA are the largest in the world. They’re global events that foster relationships, networks and large-scale trades and places where new games are unveiled. Anyone will benefit from attending these events. Regional events are smaller scale and focus on a local gambling market, regulatory discussions and iGaming operations in a certain state or country. These events are best attended by operators and other professionals in the iGaming sphere.

Format: Workshops vs. Exhibitions

At exhibitions, you can expect stands for different companies as well as talks, presentations and more. They’re perfect for operators and enthusiasts. Workshops, on the other hand, are geared more towards those in the industry and companies use them to showcase their expertise in particular areas. Examples include GLI iGaming Workshops and ICE 365.

Focus: Regulatory Issues, Operations, Affiliate Marketing, Payment, etc.

The focus of an event is hugely variable and it’s a good idea to figure out what that focus is before attending one. For example, companies that are involved in crypto gambling would look to attend events organized around digital currencies, including affiliate marketing, payments, operations, regulations and so on.
