Together, we’re stronger. While that’s a message that, in another context, didn’t go down well with voters in the UK recently, it was definitely the mood of the moment among attendees at the KPMG eGaming Summit held in Gibraltar earlier this year as they reflected on developments in the eGaming industry.
The event, which took place at the Sunborn Hotel on 21st April, brought together some 30 keynote speakers and 250 delegates, and is highlighted in a 52-page report just released by KPMG. The report covers in detail the various presentations and panel discussions held at the eSummit as well as the results of interactive polls taken during the day.
With topics as diverse as alternative payments, crowdfunding, VAT, the potential impacts of Brexit and gambler wellbeing, the report is a wealth of information and thought-provoking opinion that will be essential reading for anyone who was unable to go to the eSummit in person, as well as those are interested in reflecting further on key issues for those in the eGaming space.
The report is sponsored by Continent 8 Technologies and is available to download here. Richard Ebbutt, Head of Marketing at Continent 8, commented: “Many interesting topics came up during this year’s eSummit but one resounding cry was for industry collaboration. Whether you are a small operator, facing a hit by regulatory changes, or an industry giant concerned about the ever-changing political and economic environment, it’s clear we can all embrace the challenges and achieve more by working together as one cohesive sector.”
Those working in the eGaming industry have a further opportunity to discuss ongoing issues and future direction with the announcement by KPMG of the next Isle of Man eGaming Summit on 8th September.
Director of KPMG Isle of Man and Gibraltar Micky Swindale, who has been instrumental in developing the eGaming Summit format, said: “The timing of our next eGaming Summit is ideal for the industry to come together to discuss the opportunities, risks and next moves available to the eGaming industry and its service providers in a post-Brexit world. It will form part of a wider eSummit event, with ‘KPMG Disrupt’ and ‘KPMG Enterprise’ operating on-site, so there will a variety of technology and growth focused presentations and workshops on offer to ensure attendees make good use of their time.”
eGaming sessions and masterclasses will cover key sector risks, M&A commentary and predictions, s, and regulatory challenges and opportunities, with the wider programme taking in Fintech, Data, cyber security and the blockchain.
