Social Gambling Conference (www.socialgamblingconference.com), hosted by iGaming Business Magazine, will host the innovators of social gaming and the giants of online gambling on Friday 16th of November at Dexter House, minutes from London's "Silicon Roundabout".
With social casino-style games representing the greatest revenue driver in social media, major platform providers, including Facebook, have already approved real-money wagering on their social network. Heralded as social media's killer app, and having emerged as the darling of the Silicon Valley investment community in 2012, the social gambling space is the most fertile vertical for the converging games and gambling industries.
Bringing the games and gambling industry together, the Social Gambling Conference will cover a range of topics. Topics to be discussed include: the regulatory debate surroundings social games, analysis of the business models used, the real economics of success in the space and "Big Casinos" discuss their interest in the social gambling market.
"The conference will bring together the worlds of social gaming, online gambling and terrestrial casinos. Attendees will not only meet today's major players in this space, but tomorrow's winners. We will be covering what's happening right now in this fast-moving space, but perhaps more importantly, we will probe the experts about what the future holds during our CEO Panel "Visions of the Future," promised conference Chairman and iGaming expert Michael Caselli.
“The Social Gambling Conference will bring together social experts from the iGaming and social games industries,” said Alex Pratt, Head of iGaming Business. “They will be focusing on key themes which determine the success or failure of a Gaming company entering the social gambling sphere.”
There is an impressive starting line up of social professionals from the iGaming and social games industries.
Among the highly advanced field of speakers is Andrew Hughes CEO & Co-Founder of AbZorba Games, Brock Pierce, CEO of Playsino and a Managing Director of the Clearstone Global Gaming Fund, Jez San, Preident and Founder of PKR, Manu Gambhir, Founder & CEO of Ryzing and Rich Roberts CEO of Slingo.
“We are delighted to have such a fantastic group of speakers joining us for what is one of the few must-attend events for the industry,” said Pratt. “With the first event of its kind we wanted to invite the experts in the industry to provide insight into their success in the social gambling space”.
“With key renowned industry specialists set to speak at the Social Gambling Conference this is a unique chance to hear their fascinating perspectives on this emerging space” continued Pratt.
