John An­drews, Con­sult­ing Edi­tor of Econ­o­mist is this year’s Key­note Speaker

MIGS16, the top iGam­ing con­fer­ence in Malta for C-Level man­age­ment is once again at­tract­ing the best crop in the uni­ver­sal igam­ing in­dus­try. To date some of the world’s top man­age­ment op­er­a­tors, ser­vice providers, reg­u­la­tory bod­ies and le­gal firms have con­firmed their par­tic­i­pa­tion in this three-day con­fer­ence, which will be tak­ing place be­tween the 7th and 9th Novem­ber 2016 at the Grand Masters Suite, Hil­ton Malta.

To­gether with top notch par­tic­i­pants, the or­gan­is­ers have re­cently con­firmed John An­drews, con­sult­ing edi­tor of the Econ­o­mist and author of the best­seller, “The World in Con­flict ” as the key­note speaker for this year’s event. After the US pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, the vet­eran po­lit­i­cal jour­nal­ist will be ex­am­in­ing the chal­lenges that await the new leader of the world’s su­per­power and the po­lit­i­cal, so­cial and eco­nomic pres­sures that will test gov­ern­ments from post-Brexit Europe to a China-dom­i­nated Asia.

Mark Bland­ford, Founder of Sport­ing­bet plc and speaker on the panel “Cen­tury of Gam­ing” at MIGS last year said “I’m look­ing for­ward to this year’s MiGs. I at­tended this sem­i­nar for the first time in 2015 and found it re­ally use­ful both for net­work­ing with Malta based sup­pli­ers and also from other sup­pli­ers world­wide.”

This year’s agenda has been com­pressed into two full days, to­gether with a wel­come re­cep­tion dur­ing the Bat­tle of Malta Poker tour­na­ment on the eve, sev­eral other net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in­clud­ing the first ever iGam­ing Awards for em­ploy­ees en­ti­tled iGam­ing idol and the pop­u­lar clos­ing party on the fi­nal night.

The Malta Gam­ing Author­ity and Malta Tourism Author­ity have also con­firmed their sup­port to­wards this pre­mium event. Mr Joseph Cuschieri, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of the MGA re­cently en­dorsed MIGS as one of the top events he has at­tended in Europe in terms of quality speak­ers, con­tent as well as par­tic­i­pants. He said that “MIGS has been in­stru­men­tal in plac­ing Malta on the map as a des­ti­na­tion for a quality iGam­ing con­fer­ence. Their con­sis­tent con­tri­bu­tion to the in­dus­try in de­liv­er­ing valu­able con­tent, net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties through their high cal­iber speak­ers and at­ten­dees is one of the best plat­forms for in­ter­na­tional ex­ec­u­tives to net­work, learn and share rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion and knowl­edge.”

Chris Car­dona, Min­is­ter for the Econ­omy, In­vest­ment and Small Busi­ness, Ana­toliy Knyazev, Founder of Bit­Coin, Joseph Cuschieri, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of MGA, Martin Drey­mann, Co­Founder of Ebet­tle, Mark Bland­ford, Founder of Sport­ing­bet, Martha Sabol, Co-Chair Gam­ing Prac­tice and Tim Re­hder, CEO of Cu­bits, amongst oth­ers, will pro­vide their in­sights into this year’s theme en­ti­tled “Nav­i­gat­ing Un­char­tered Wa­ters”.

The top­ics be­ing de­bated are grow­ing costs from reg­u­la­tors, tax­a­tion, vir­tual cur­ren­cies, player re­ac­ti­va­tion, eS­ports, Brexit and an IMGL Mas­ter Class that will cover new and chang­ing markets amongst oth­ers.

Day 1 will be chaired by world iGam­ing ex­pert Michael Caselli, while Day 2 will be chaired by iGam­ing Vet­eran AJ Thompson.

Sue Sch­nei­der, con­fer­ence chair and iGam­ing vet­eran said that “MIGS16 was de­vel­oped by pro­fes­sion­als for pro­fes­sion­als, it stands alone in terms of quality of con­tent, speak­ers and net­work­ing. Any­one se­ri­ous about mov­ing the in­dus­try or their oper­a­tion for­ward will ma­te­ri­ally ben­e­fit from at­tend­ing”.

The MIGS16 con­fer­ence agenda evolves and im­proves ev­ery year uti­liz­ing in­put from trusted authorities, feed­back from past at­ten­dees and the global in­dus­try at large. One of the ma­jor ele­ments that at­tract del­e­gates to MIGS is the abil­ity of the or­gan­is­ers to be in­no­va­tive with their con­tent de­liv­ery and net­work­ing, whilst the event an­nu­ally re­tains the same high cal­i­bre of ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence.
