(New York, N.Y.) Interactive gaming leaders from around the globe will gather at the 1st Interactive Gaming & Entertainment (IGE) on November 2-4 at Universal’s Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, FL (

From gambling law and management to new business opportunities—IGE is being heralded early on as the place to be for the wireless and Internet gaming and wagering industry. Initial inquiries and indications are that leaders from over 40 countries are expected to attend from the interactive and land-based gaming industry. If anyone has an interest in this $100 Billion dollar industry Orlando in November is their destination.

· Updates on governmental regulations from around the world

· Protecting yourself and your company from litigation: a no-holds-barred interactive panel with global legal experts

· Save yourself from repeating the mistakes of others. Learn the “tricks of the trade” from some of the industry’s biggest success stories

This event is being anticipated industry-wide. “Gaming and entertainment are businesses whose rise on the Internet and via modern day technology have expanded world-wide well beyond the most optimistic projections,” said Christopher Dauer, Senior Vice President of Strategic Research Institute. “There is a thirst for knowledge, for details that cover every facet of these industries, marketing to affiliate programming, legalities to technology, budget and projections to acceptable venues, innovation to reasons for failures. It is also an unabashed reality that too many conferences, seminars and expositions are self-serving with a notable absence of candid and forthright contributory speakers coupled with unnecessary and less than constructive repetitions from prior gatherings. It was time,” he concluded, “to fill the void. This is what we intend to do in Orlando in November.”

As an added bonus, a special awards luncheon ceremony will be held on November 3rd featuring the Gambling Online Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards, the most prestigious awards in interactive gaming.

Online sportsbooks, casinos, land based organizations and other gaming and entertainment related entities attending the conference will hear about the current state of the market including the development of emerging technologies and e-cash solutions. Also, discussions in the various sessions will cover emerging, untapped areas of opportunity and growth, updated legal and regulatory issues, and focus on the rapidly emerging areas of horseracing, online lotteries, and more.
