|(Hatboro, PA) —It was announced today that IGCE, the conference division of The Sports Network, the premiere real-time sports wire service in the United States, will be “going green” for their April, 2008 event in Lisbon, Portugal. “We are not going to save the world, nor the environment,” said Conference Coordinator, Amanda Manero, “but we are interested in making whatever contribution we can and ‘going green’ does not mean we are returning to the site of one of our prior efforts…Dublin, Ireland. No workbooks and everything on disk, no flyers, no hard mailings and so forth. It also means catering to the market.” |
The International Gaming Conference & Expo has also conducted a study to determine the topics that would be of greatest concern to the industry and those attending IGCE 2008.
“That is when we determined that there was nothing more important and necessary than the legal viewpoint domestically and internationally,” continued Ms. Manero. “It went well beyond networking, exhibitors, technological advances, new games, affiliates, and all the rest. The industry’s very existence was, and is, hanging in the balance. That is what has to be addressed. We did that with a roster and faculty of speakers that is unparalleled…among which are Gabi Campus, Martin Owens, Joe Kelly, Ed Dowd, Tony Coles, Emery Brett Ledger, Mark Mendel, Wulf Hambach, Paul Dwyer, Manfred Bodner, Anthony Cabot, Mitch Garber, Andrew Woods, Paddy Woods, Quirino Mancini, Fred Gushin, Dr.Tony Axisa, Thiebault Verbiest and Nelson Rose…to name just a few.'
IGCE has also announced that registration will be accompanied by reservations for specific luncheon seating with designated speakers on a first come, first serve basis and that attendees cannot sit with the same speaker on both days of the conference.
IGCE has indicated that the venue will be the 5-star Corinthia Lisboa Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal. Further, all inquiries regarding speaking at the conference, attendance and sponsorship must be made between now and January 15th particularly for attendees to reserve a spot and avail themselves of the early bird special of 1095 Euros. On January 15th the conference registration fee will go to 1295 Euros.
“We are actually limiting attendance to 250 in an effort for attendees and speakers to gain the greatest amount of knowledge and interaction between all. Consequently, we are asking that registration be made via direct contact with our offices right now before we ‘open it up’ to the Internet and our IGCE site. When we reach that number, we will close out the conference registration.”
