|23rd June, 2006 (London, UK) - The KPI Summit 2006, scheduled at the London Stock Exchange for the 30th of June, will be postponed to include the opinions of additional operators eager to contribute, but unable to lend their suggested KPI definitions before that date. |
In order to ensure that the KPI Summit’s findings will represent a homogenised set of definitions, the KPI Summit Group will seek the opinions of more iGaming operators than had been originally scheduled. KPIs are only meaningful if they are widely adopted within an industry, it is therefore imperative that this Summit represents a collaborative process including the opinions of all the key players in the business of iGaming.
Additionally, the Group wishes to include the findings of a private discussion on KPIs held on the 13th of this month in Gibraltar, which included several industry leaders. The KPI Summit Group are pleased that the Gibraltar group has made progress in establishing a view of industry KPIs, and is eager to let that process run its course before regrouping the industry. At that time the KPI Summit Group will be in position to consider those developments.
In response to the positive feedback the KPI Summit has received from gaming and leisure analysts, the Group is also considering the inclusion of additional members from the financial community.
The goal of all concerned is to create a set of KPIs that accurately represents the benchmarks in this sector. This will ultimately help individuals and institutions invest confidently in the business of iGaming.
