|ST. CHARLES, MO - For the last nine years, GIGSE has thrived as the premier event for the interactive gaming industry. As the industry developed, GIGSE has matured to keep pace and mirror the changing dynamics that drive the industry and mold it into its current form.|
In 2008, GIGSE will evolve into the Global Interactive Gaming Summit for Executives. 'We've heard from the industry that there's a need for an invitation-only C-level executive, operator-focused summit, our own Davos if you will, for the iGaming industry as it enters its adolescence,' noted Sue Schneider, CEO of Clarion Gaming Americas.
GIGSE in its new format is designed to bring together select business visionaries, with a sprinkling of academic and government leaders. Together, they will explore the past, present and future of this nascent industry which is constantly being reshaped by sometimes surprising changes. High-profile keynote speakers from outside the industry are being secured.
In addition, a series of collaborative closed-door discussions, exploring the critical issues for the industry - as chosen by the participants - will be a fundamental aspect of the conference.
The Summit will be targeted primarily to online gaming operators from around the globe with limited involvement by suppliers, governments and industry associations. Attendance will be reserved for invited founders, CEOs, Board Members, Managing Directors and/or selected C-Level executives (CMO, CTO, CFO) and will operate under the Chatham House Rule.
'This will be an opportunity for candid discussions on where the industry is headed and what it will take to keep business thriving while remaining flexible enough to weather the challenges that it continues to encounter,' said Schneider. The collaborative discussion topics will be determined by the delegates, but it's anticipated that they will cover such themes as: convergence of delivery channels; consolidation and the future of M & A; emerging technologies; keeping pace with market demand for new products; best practices from outside the industry and corporate social responsibility, among others.
This exclusive event will be held May 20-22, 2008 at a five-star resort in Malta.
