iGaming France Two Weeks Away

Now just two weeks away, organizers for the iGaming France Conference 2011 are announcing more details on some of the more high-profile panels and sessions in “the first-ever B2B and affiliate event dedicated to the online gaming sector in France.”

The event kicks off on March 25, with an online gambling CEO Panel that includes bwin.party’s Norbert Teufelberger as well as Nicolas Béraud, president of BetClic (a company that’s recently aimed some pretty heavy criticsm at French online gambling regulators).

French online gambling affiliate marketing and strategic planning are the focus of the conference going into its second day. Panel discussions will have a heavy slant towards the affiliate sector, iGaming Business reps explain, with “discussions with regulators and operators who will be offering practical advice, market analysis, strategies and legal and regulatory updates” also on offer.

iGB Affiliate has also revealed that the majority of the sessions and speakers will be in French, but with live English translation readily available. “The conference will also offer international affiliates and stakeholders targeting France ‘invaluable information’ into this major European market,” reps continue.

“With the French iGaming market rapidly growing, this event will provide a much needed resource for affiliates, vendors and operators not only from an educational standpoint but also to help bring this market together for the first time since regulation,” said Alex Pratt from iGB Affiliate.

“This is an event that operators and affiliates have asked us to organise for a number of years and I am really pleased that we are going to deliver this with iGaming France as it means the event will be a huge success with every player that is serious about targeting France in attendance.”
