European Gaming to offer virtual conferences for 2020
18 March 2020
(PRESS RELEASE) -- European Gaming, Central Europe’s leading betting and gaming media platform, has unveiled plans to host the industry’s first virtual conference after announcing its MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit and BGS Awards are to be postponed.
Set to take place on the 7th May, the date of the original event, the industry’s first virtual conference will include panel discussions and presentations via live stream, along with the opportunity for registered delegates to network via online meetings.
Each of the event’s registered delegates and speakers will be assigned an online profile upon registering, with each available to contact (and be contacted) in advance of the event. Arranged meetings can take place either via voice or video call through the event’s platform during the conference day.
European Gaming’s innovative solution comes amidst ongoing uncertainty about the impact of the COVID-19 virus on the gambling industry, and what precautionary measures should be taken in relation to upcoming events.
Zoltan Tuendik, Founder and Head of Business and Events at European Gaming said: “The spread of the COVID-19 virus is yet to be fully realised and we as an industry are already feeling the economic impact.
“The best approach we can take at this time is to embrace and innovate. The virtual space is an area our team already has experience in, and with learning and networking essential during this challenging period, we saw this as the natural solution.
“In the upcoming weeks we will also launch several other tools to help like-minded industry peers stay ahead of the curve and create more leads, so be sure to stay tuned.”
