The coronavirus pandemic is forcing changes everywhere, but online alternatives are gaining traction

The MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit spent months preparing for a new edition that was supposed to take place in May until COVID-19 became a global pandemic and most in-person gatherings were canceled. The organization has decided to continue its mission to bring together gaming industry shareholders and government officials from the Baltic and Scandinavian region for the third time, but this time the event will be virtual. The live event in Tallinn, Estonia has been postponed until August, but, in the meantime, a virtual edition has just been announced. The date hasn’t changed – May 7 will bring together over 300 professionals in the gambling industry to the virtual platform from an Internet browser.

Trying to replicate what goes on in the live conferences, this platform will allow attendants to network while sitting at virtual tables. For this purpose, there will be an online deal room, but individuals will also have the chance to engage in one on one meetings with either clients, partners and/or prospects. To attend this conference taking place in May, interested groups or individuals will be required to register to save a seat. The advantage is that it can be joined from any place in the world, without needing to travel.

Head of Business at European Gaming Media and Events, Zoltán Tűndik, commented on the change by stating, “We are adapting to current times and catering for the quality learning and networking needs of the industry. We are lucky to have connections such as Erdal Kilinc (CEO and Co-Founder at Deal Room Events), who is helping us with this transition and teaching us the way virtual conferences work. We invite all interested companies to register and attend the first virtual conference in the gambling industry.”
