|The River City Group has announced the first Pacific Congress on Interactive Gaming. The event is to be held on February 24-26, 2003 in Alice Springs. Main theme at the event is to be “The Road Ahead.”|
The Pacific region is home to some of the oldest and consequently more sophisticated online gambling sites in the world. Whilst other regions are beginning to gain momentum in the evolution of I-gaming regulation, the Pacific has successfully maintained itself as a regulated i-gaming hub in its own right. Australia is a major leader in online race while sports books the region dominate in the development of wireless technologies.
Registration at the Pacific Congress on Interactive Gaming will cost $1995. The preliminary program covers subjects from player profiles and understanding the Asian market to the state of I-gambling in Australia.
River City Group hopes that the congress will provide an opportunity to meet and do business with industry leaders or learn about the recommended practices being utilized to meet the demands of the online community and legal regulations. Debates on policies regarding “cross border” gambling and other hot topics will also be taking on order.
