We had 435 attendees and 45% of them came from some 25 countries around the world so it was truly global in scope. A number of key topics were discussed including the Increasing Cost of Doing Business which is crippling the bottom line of a number of companies. Delegates were exposed to information on new licensing regimes in Europe as well as new products such as eSports and Daily Fantasy Sports. One of the highlights was a Century of iGaming panel which included industry veterans: Calvin Ayre, founder of Bodog; Pontus Lindwall, founder of NetEnt and Bettson; Franz Wohlfahrt of Novomatic; Mark Blandford, founder of SportingBet and Paris Smith, CEO of Pinnacle Sports.”
