The Canadian Gaming Summit

The Canadian Gaming Summit covers all sectors of the gaming industry in Canada. Professionals from a large number of companies will get the chance to interact and make new connections. There is also the chance for companies to showcase their products and any services they offer.

It I expected that there will be at least 1,500 attendees at the event. The 2014 summit was very successful, and 95% of those that had attended in 2014 have said that they will be back in 2015. There are a number of sessions that will be held in order to discuss and debate important gambling-related matters. Included in these sessions are discussions regarding mobile and online gaming, charitable gambling, human resources, legal issues connected with gambling, as well as how to promote responsible gambling. There will also be sessions devoted to strategies that help companies to increase their customer base.
