Rich pickings from top suppliers at EiG 2004

Over 300 i-gaming professionals will convene at the Hotel Melia Sitges, Barcelona, Spain between 8-10 November for the European i-Gaming Congress & Expo (EiG).

Now in its third year, EiG has gone from strength to strength as more industry players recognise the importance of participating at Europe’s largest and most comprehensive i-gaming event, not only for the in-depth conference programme covering the latest hot topics but also for the chance to see the latest developments and applications being demonstrated by leading suppliers.

More than 15 blue chip names from seven countries have been secured for the ‘Expo’ component of the annual event staged by co-organisers ATE Conferences and River City Group. Among them will be at least seven companies specialising in the development of games for internet, mobile, iTV and terminal platforms, including Boss Media, Chartwell Technology, European Game & Entertainment Technology (EGET), Net Entertainment, Orbis, Poker Network/Ongame and vsGaming. Visiting operators will be able to select from at least four e-commerce suppliers offering a range of financial software packages and online payment processing systems. The EiG quartet comprises Accurate Software, ECS World, TrustMarque International and Wire Card. Bell Med (licensing, hosting and back office services) will be joined on the show floor by a number of other specialist consultancies offering legal, marketing and financial advice specific to the i-gaming sector.

More strong backing for EiG is evident in the high profile names backing this year’s event with eight sponsors comprising Deloitte, EGET, Jeffrey Green Russell, Mohawk Internet Technologies, Open Bet, Playtech, SafeCharge and Wire Card.

ATE’s Ian Adams, responsible for show floor sales, commented: “These suppliers are involved in projects operating in every legal jurisdiction across the world and as such bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to EiG. As such operators attending the conference will benefit enormously from their presence and have the opportunity to see not only what’s currently on offer but also get a taste of what’s round the corner – all in one neatly packaged trip.”
