International Gaming Conference to meet in Ireland, May 6-8

by Lou on March 13, 2007

The International Gaming Conference & Expo (IGCE) scheduled its first 2007 gathering May 6-8, at The Burlington Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. The chosen venue destination is a four-star property with proximity to the city, airport, shopping, and tourist attractions.

IGCE’s press release press release stated that the original location was to have been Cancun, Mexico, but the high degree of difficulty in traveling there from Europe offset the ambience.

I’m taking this to mean that a lot of potential attendees don’t want to chance setting foot in the United States when they change planes. Given the current political climate, Costa Rica, which looked like a natural alternative to Cancun, was scratched too because many attendees would have to travel through the United States to get there.

Dublin is accessible for all of Europe and Asia and provides all the amenities required for a conference except for a white sandy beach and warm water for attendees to dip their toes in.

The focus of the conference in Dublin is billed as “What’s Next?” as attendees attempt to determine the direction of the gaming and gambling the U.S. and off-shore.

Additional information on the conference is available by emailing info@igconference.com, or by calling 1.215.441.5887.

IGCE has tentatively scheduled its Fall (September) conference for Bangkok its September conference.
