GIGSE '08 Dates and Venue Announced

    ST. CHARLES, Mo., Oct. 18 /CNW/ -- The 10th Annual Global I-Gaming Summit
and Expo (GIGSE) will be held June 3-5, 2008 at the Palais de Congres in
Montreal.  The theme for 2008 will be "Position Yourself".  Sue Schneider of
Clarion Gaming (formerly River City Group) explained, "The regulatory
environment around the world is becoming clearer every day.  We're finding so
many new companies and governments around the world that realize this industry
is here to stay and are beginning to explore how they will integrate
interactive gaming products into their offerings."
    While, historically, the industry has been dealt its share of success and
setback, there's little argument that it's here to stay, and its future is
bright.  "People know the rules and are finding creative and lucrative ways to
work within them," Schneider added.
    The industry's most established international event continues to draw
attendees from over 45 countries, attracting both online and terrestrial
gaming companies from casino, sports betting, racing and lottery operations on
a number of continents who are exploring their options.
    The sharp line formerly dividing the terrestrial and internet sectors
continues to soften, which the programming being planned for this year's event
    The 2008 conference will place emphasis on cultivating cross-sector
solutions as well as partnership development, investment opportunities and
technology-related challenges. With particular emphasis on legalized gambling,
the program will also examine forward-looking opportunities in jurisdictions
like the United States and South Africa, where regulatory efforts are
currently underway. Finally, there will be continued attention toward advanced
topics and issues that are pertinent to i-gaming veterans.
    With the industry changing so dramatically in the past year, GIGSE is
retooling like the many companies around the world that it serves. The plans
for 2008 include an increased emphasis on the conference component and a
new-look expo hall designed to enhance networking opportunities.  The
presentation stage in the exhibition will offer continuous programming,
including short solution spotlights, two-minute deal-making presentations and
a variety of other dynamic programming additions.
