iGaming France and IGB Affiliate partner to launch iGaming France Conference 2011

1 October 2010 (London, UK, Paris , France) – iGaming France, the leading B2B news and content provider to the French online gaming community, and IGB Affiliate, (organiser of the leading affiliate events in Budapest, London, Stockholm and Prague) have entered into partnership to launch the first ever iGaming France Conference 2011.

This first-of-its-kind event will take place over two days in Paris in March 2011 (exact dates TBC) and will sign off with the first ever iGaming France Industry Awards that will celebrate the best of France’s online gaming sector.

Alex Pratt, head of events at IGB Affiliate, commented: “With the French igamingmarket rapidly growing this event will provide a much-needed resource for affiliates, vendors and operators not only from an educational standpoint, but also to help bring this market together for the first time since regulation. This is an event that operators and affiliates have asked us to organise for a number of years and I am really pleased that we are going to deliver this with iGaming France as it means the event will be a huge success, with every player that is serious about targeting France in attendance.”

With all online gaming eyes on France at the moment, the iGaming France Conference is the ideal opportunity for all industry players – affiliates, operators, software firms, legal experts and other service suppliers, to meet up, network and take stock of a market undergoing major changes.

The event will feature major panels with a heavy slant towards the affiliate sector as well as top level discussions with regulators and operators featuring strategies, practical advice, market analysis and legal and regulatory updates.

The majority of the talks will be held in French with live English translation for many of them and will provide key insights to those involved in the market, while also offering international affiliates and stakeholders targeting France invaluable information on this major European market.

Jake Pollard, head of publishing at iGaming France, added: “We’re delighted to partner with the leading affiliate event organiser IGB Affiliate to offer a comprehensive conference that will provide all those present with invaluable insights into all aspects of the French online gaming sector. Early feedback from our contacts has been very encouraging. This major event will be one not to miss and will conclude with the showcase iGaming France Industry Awards to celebrate the best of French online gaming.”
