As far as the pricing yes – the whole summit is expensive I agree but they are tried and true and the largest North American gathering of the online gaming market.
The affiliate event which is like a pre-summit event is only one day.
I plan to go to the exhibits area and not the actual seminars. I find the exhibits is great for networking and as I attend many conferences, the information presented in the seminars, although always good, is not a must for me.
Don’t pay to get in. CasinoCoins and Richwebmaster are both located in the Toronto area. Let either one know you will be in town and you are attending as their “guest”. If you have good stats don’t take no for an answer.
