On Feb. 25, 2016, representatives from the gaming industry and the national government will gather at the Radisson Blu Iberia Hotel to meet with investors and gaming experts for the second Georgia Gaming Congress.
The event, which is organized by Russian-based Smile-Expo, aims to bring together all the key people in the industry and plan new initiatives for the development of gambling in the region.
"Georgia Gaming Congress has managed to establish itself as the biggest event for the representatives of the gambling industry in Georgia," a representative of Smile-Expo told PokerNews. "We have taken the best from the Gaming Congress 2015 and invited even more speakers, government officials and foreign guests. We have much to discuss, because 2015 is memorable due to a number of large transactions, and the next year promises to be no less interesting."
Through the Gaming Congress, the organizers hope to create a platform to further develop a market that seems to be one of the most vibrant in Europe, as the success of events like the World Poker Tour (WPT) organized by Europe-Bet.com, and the MPN Poker Tour Tbilisi by Adjarabet and the Microgaming Poker Network have shown in 2015.
"Georgia is known for its experience of reforms and liberalization of business, and it is one of the world leaders in the development of the gaming sector," the representative continued. "Offline and online gambling in the country quickly takes up and develops the latest trends: from operation with Bitcoin to fantasy sports."
During the one-day event, the participants will have the opportunity to join several conferences touching diverse topics with sessions dedicated to the analysis of Georgia's legislative framework as well as broader topics like the strategies to attract new players and the comparative analysis of the European and American gambling markets.
"The search for new strategies, understanding the needs of new audiences, development of software and specific legislation regulating new areas of gaming - all these issues require clarification and discussion. To do this, the industry professionals will meet together at Georgia Gaming Congress," the representative concluded.
