The Vienna International Gaming Expo returns in 2018, with the second installment of one of the fastest growing Central Europe conference offerings. This year, the VIGE will take place in boutique style guided by the motto ‘Do it for your karma’. May 30th will kick off pre-registration with a Welcome Drinks and Networking event provided. From May 31st through June 1st, the exhibition section will be open to highlight the newest companies and feature established providers already operating within the online gambling industry.
This year, the VIGE will be in a new location, the Danube City Tower. As the tallest skyscraper in all of Austria, the Vienna location meets the needs of delegates that took part in the first event, who provided feedback regarding the location of the venue. Attending delegates will be able to enjoy amazing views of the city while networking at the conference and staying at the Meliá Vienna Hotel if they so choose for comfort and ease of access to the event. The hotel offers guest accommodations inside the Danube City Tower.
The focus of this year’s event is to bring software providers and service providers in the gaming industry together. The goal is to encourage collaborations between those involved in casino, sports betting, eSports, virtual reality gaming and daily fantasy sports. The floor plan for the VIGE will have limited space, providing room for only 38 exhibitors. Early booking is encouraged as these spots will fill up quickly.
At the same time as the exhibition, the VIGE will also provide the new iGaming Knowledge Seminar series and offer Innovation Talks. These panels will provide attendees with additional information within the industry. The iGaming Knowledge Seminar is focused on key techniques and services that can be used by operators within the gambling industry to lower fraud, increase revenue and learn more about updates to regulatory environments in the trending markets.
With Innovation Talks, the latest technology in the gambling industry will be highlighted, including information on new product launches from top companies in the industry. Innovation Talks took place in 2017 during VIGE and was well-received by attendees. Seminars will focus on several topics including:
- Germany Market Update
