The live event had to be postponed due to the coronavirus
The 14th edition of the World Gaming Executive Summit (WGES) will have a live event this year; however, it was announced that it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and will now take place this upcoming December. For years, this gambling conference has delivered world-class knowledge and networking opportunities with a focus on senior gaming specialists. As a result, this has been one of the must-attend events for members of the gambling industry – online, land-based, lottery, regulation – and even for blockchain and sports gaming communities. This year’s event will take place from December 7-9, in Barcelona, Spain.
This year’s summit will have a special focus on emerging technologies that are coming to the gambling market at a rapid pace; even WGES is working on a brand-new startup hub for this year.
This event will showcase the boldest ideas from companies regarding technical innovations and entrepreneurship. WGES 2020 will bring a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs and established gaming companies, operators, lotteries, regulators, investors and media to participate in the networking sessions and take advantage of the opportunity to build new and fruitful business relationships.
In addition to that, this year’s conference will also pay attention to the current status of the industry that has been affected the most by the coronavirus pandemic. The speakers confirmed for the event will focus on these sudden shifts the industry has experienced, as well as with new trends to help operators come up with great new ideas. Other sections of the three-day event will be focused on land-based casinos, sports betting, new emerging markets, eSports and regulations, among others.
