iGaming Super Show adds Black Friday sessions
The online poker legal action in the U.S. has been the center of attention in the online gaming world for the past few weeks.
And iGaming Business, the masterminds behind the gaming affiliate world’s most popular conferences, is offering affiliates and operators a chance to regroup and discuss these events: The upcoming iGaming Super Show, kicking off in three weeks in Dublin, has added special sessions dealing with U.S. legal issues and where the industry can go from here.
In addition to a newly announced session at the iGaming Super Show that will directly address the legal implications of the shutdown, organizers also held a pre-show webinar discussing the U.S. situation.
That webinar featured the expertise of industry leaders like iGaming Business editor-in-chief Michael Caselli, Ongame managing director Peter Bertilsson, GamblingCompliance editor Chris Krafcik, and iMEGA chairman Joe Brennan, providing info that will be central to the many discussions at the iGaming Super Show.
Most relevant to the current U.S. situation, the iGaming Super Show’s keynote address is by American Gaming Association (AGA) President and CEO Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., who’ll be speaking on the topic of “Legalization of US Internet Gambling: Where Do We Go From Here?”
“Fahrenkopf will discuss the various stakeholders involved in the potential legalization of online gambling in the U.S., the politics involved and his outlook on what the future holds,” organizers state.
