iGaming Idol launnches iGaming NEXT

14 March 2019

For iGaming Idol, 2018 was a year of positive change. The third edition culminated in a sold-out gala night on 26 September at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre in St Julian’s, with €20,000 raised for the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation during the same evening. But now, iGaming Idol organisers have launched two new projects; iGaming NEXT and iGaming Invitational, signalling an eventful and busy year ahead for iGaming Idol.

iGaming NEXT is an exclusive concept where the ideas, products and technologies for the future will be revealed. Happening on 10 September 2019, at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre, iGaming NEXT is a one day, one venue event for the industry’s decision makers. Bringing together some 700 delegates, iGaming NEXT will present six tier-1 igaming suppliers, who will take to the stage in 20-minute slots. We are excited to have already confirmed NetEnt, Quickspin and Evolution Gaming as partners who will be presenting. Google has also been confirmed as a partner and keynote at the event, as well as iGaming Business and Calvin Ayre as media partners.

Michael Pedersen, CEO of iGaming Idol comments: "One of the key benefits of iGaming NEXT is that it's a one-stop-shop for igaming suppliers, operators and media and will be a tremendous time saver for everyone, as everything is packed into one solid day. Imagine Apple's yearly reveal event, combined with the presentation quality and attention of a TED conference.” 

Pedersen continues: “We have also confirmed Google as partner and keynote speaker, so delegates will be inspired on what the future of technology holds as well as seeing concrete product and technology roadmaps for 2020 from the top suppliers of the industry”.

Happening on 8 May 2019 at the Royal Malta Golf Course, iGaming Invitational is a golf event for the industry’s C-level and senior managers to meet and compete with their peers. The event will offer a networking opportunity as well as some competitive fun and socialising. This event is strictly invite-only.

iGaming Idol 2019 will once again be held at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre on 11 September 2019, the day after iGaming NEXT. This year’s edition promises not only the entertainment as well as the glitz and glamour, which the organisers feel have become synonymous with iGaming Idol, but also plenty of surprises.
