Boutique gaming event organizer European Gaming Media and Events has hailed the ‘huge success’ of the inaugural edition of its European Gaming Congress (EGC) before detailing that the extravaganza’s 2019 edition is to take place in the Italian city of Milan.

Pan-European presence:

The show organizer used an official Monday press release (pdf) to reveal that introductory EGC was held at the Grand Union Hotel in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana on October 16 and ‘recorded a significant success’ as operators, regulators, experts and service providers from across Europe gathered together to discuss some of the most key licensing and compliance issues facing the industry.

Insights and networking:

European Gaming Media and Events stated that those who had attended its first EGC were moreover able to get the latest sector insights from jurisdictions including Malta, Slovenia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, France and Greece while taking advantage of a plethora of networking opportunities to meet some of the European gambling industry’s most influential figures.

Complimentary event:

Zoltan Tundik, Head of Business for European Gaming Media and Events, declared that he was ‘really happy with the turnout and the feedback’ received from EGC attendees and feels that the event will now ‘complement’ his firm’s already well-established offerings that include the Prague Gaming Summit, Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference and Mare Balticum Gaming Summit.

Online casino games developer Tom Horn Gaming was just one of the many firms that attended last month’s EGC with the Maltese firm’s Compliance Manager, Lucia Chmelova, describing the event as ‘another successful occasion organized by Zoltan and his colleagues’.
