The Strategic Platform for iGaming Conference and Exhibition (SPiCE) is set to take place at the Goa Marriott Resort and Spa from February 25 – 27, 2019. This conference is going to be very important for India’s gaming industry as top stakeholders will share their views and opinions on the future of India’s gambling market.
Originally, the conference was considered as Sports Betting and Gaming India Summit (SGBI) where participants and organizers discussed the adverse and beneficial effects of gambling. Since both delegates and organizers have seen the overwhelming response that they decided to place a sequel to SBGI 2018.
What to Expect
The conference will result in the discussion of a variety of topics concerning gamers, sports betting and the overall gambling industry. The 2018 edition featured similar topics but also dealt with the political scenario and the future of legalized gambling in industry. It is safe to say that similar topics will also take center stage this years as India’s gambling market continues to grow and campaigners push for the legalization of sports betting and online gambling.
Organized by Eventus International, the three-day conference will be filled with healthy discussions and activities concerning the gaming industry.
Foreign Players and Technology
The conference is also expected to discuss the impact of foreign operators on the domestic market, mobile gambling, daily fantasy sports and the growth of poker in India. There will also be key presentations on the growing concern about official and unofficial sport data, as well as the different taxes, both direct and indirect that operators and bettors have to pay in India.
With the 2019 national elections fast approaching, SPiCE presentations will provide an interesting analysis as what could happen to India’s gambling industry based on the results of the forthcoming elections. The industry will receive a much needed boost if a political party that is pro-gambling gets elected for the next term.
Organizers have invited different speakers to discuss various topics such as responsible gaming in India, online fantasy gaming, sports betting, eSports, opportunities, challenges and problems in the Indian gaming industry and many more. SPiCE presentations will also discuss how cryptocurrency would play a part in regulating the sports betting industry. This conference would also feature a poker tournament for gaming enthusiasts.
SPiCE is expecting a lot of people to attend as this is one of the biggest conferences which seek to address the gaming industry in India.
