Live gaming conferences are starting to make a return, marking a step forward in the COVID-19 battle
There are several massive live gaming events scheduled for later this year that are still waiting for the development of the situation around the coronavirus pandemic to decide whether to cancel or to move forward with the plans. For the gambling industry, the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit announced that it would run online due to the pandemic, but this week has made an announcement confirming a separate live edition that will take place in August. Restrictions in Estonia, where the event is to be held, were lifted; therefore, people from many countries can enter the country without the need to follow quarantine requirements for 14 days.
As announced by the event organizers, the Gaming Summit will take place on August 6 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn. According to official sources, Estonia will start allowing people from the EU and EEA countries to enter as of June 1; this means that all attendees will be able to visit Tallinn and take part in the conference since the virus spreading has slowed down.
The country will continue updating other countries that are not required to follow a self-isolation period of 14 days. For instance, individuals from Austria, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy and the Netherlands are allowed to attend the conference. Zoltán Tűndik, co-founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency, said that MARE BALTICUM can be attended by anyone interested in safe networking and learning possibilities. Both the Estonia Health Ministry as well as the Radisson Blu team confirmed that everyone is safe to attend the conference.
As of July 1, the region will start allowing indoor events of up to 500 people in facilities where 50% or less of its capacity is used. Delegates will be limited to only 80 so there is always a comfortable environment.
