EiG to hold delegate rates firm

25 September 2013

LONDON -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Clarion Events, organizers of the forthcoming EiG (Oct. 8-10 in Barcelona) have confirmed that delegate rates are being held at the standard price of €1,799 up until Friday, Oct. 4.

"We have had a fantastic response from the iGaming community to this year's event which will have a record number of delegates," said EiG portfolio director Kate Chambers. "When there is sustained demand for a product, business sense would normally dictate an end to any discounting, however we have decided to tear up the rule book in the interests of bringing as many thought leaders and influencers to Barcelona as possible for what is the definitive business event for the European iGaming community. EiG is a brand with huge integrity and I would much rather invest in the reputation it enjoys as the place where iGaming leaders come together rather than just add to the bottom line."

The announcement follows news that Chairman Isadore Hall of the Californian State Assembly has agreed to provide a keynote on the legislative process in California. Hall, who will share his insight as an Assembly Member on the state of play in what is widely predicted to be the most profitable online poker market in the United States, became the 130th leading speaker to confirm his attendance in Barcelona.

The Keynote will be followed by an informal discussion and debate involving key U.S. stakeholders, including Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association; Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president, communications and government relations, Caesars Entertainment; Victor Rocha, owner and editor, Pechanga.net; Honorable Jon C Porter, CEO, Porter Gordon Silver; and Mickey Charles, CEO, The Sports Network.

The Breakfast session is being moderated by the highly respected Gene Johnson, senior vice president for market research and online studies at Spectrum Gaming Group.
