|The Interactive Gaming Institute of Nevada (IGI) has announced that has merged with a lobby group similar to itself, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) and they will present together the Interactive Gaming Symposium on Friday, September 20 here in the gaming capitol. |
The new alliance has therefore canceled what would have been its 2nd Annual Interactive Gaming Expo and Symposium next month.
'Rather than to continue to hold our own separate Interactive Gaming Conference and Expo, talking primarily to those who are already knowledgeable about remote gaming, we have concluded that it is better to join forces,' said Richard Fitzpatrick, CEO of IGI. 'G2E does a tremendous job of bringing together the broad universe of those who have a stake in the expansion of licensed, regulated gaming.'
The symposium will be an intensive one-day affair to update knowledge on new legislation and regulations important to gaming. Interactive gaming products will also be discussed, as well as interactive TV and remote control betting. Player ID biometrics; smart cards and other new technologies will be discussed as well as the new developments in gaming choices, such as intranets, kiosks. and wireless services. .
