4 September 2019

Amazon Game Tech's Head of Business Development Griff Parry has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for the first ever iGaming NEXT event.

Happening on the 10th of September 2019, at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre, iGaming NEXT will bring together some 700 delegates. iGaming NEXT will present  product and technology roadmaps for 2020 and beyond from suppliers of the industry plus confirmed keynote speakers including the head of business development for Amazon Game Tech in EMEA, Griff Parry, who will take to the stage on the day in a speech titled, ‘How Gaming can learn from Games’.

Pierre Lindh, founder of iGaming Idol commented, "We are working incredibly hard to put iGaming NEXT on the map as the new and forward-thinking conference within the iGaming Industry. And our philosophy is that not only do we want to host industry veterans, but also to invite inspirational industry leaders from tech giants outside of the igaming industry who have dealt with the same challenges the igaming industry is currently facing, but on a much larger scale. That is why we are extremely excited to have a heavy weight like Griff Parry of Amazon with us during iGaming NEXT!"

Originally the co-founder and CEO of GameSparks, a backend service for implementing features to improve player loyalty and retention, which Amazon bought in 2017, Griff Parry is now the head of business development for Amazon Game Tech in EMEA, working with Amazon customers across games and gaming, while also responsible for Amazon’s go-to-market strategy for gaming in Europe. Prior to this, he specialised in blue-chip corporates in the media sector which focused on digital strategies and transformations and he spent most of his career launching products for BSkyB such as Sky Go, the over-the-top video platform.
