6th Annual US Online Gaming Forum Starts TodayPublished May 13, 2015 by Arthur M
The Forum on US Online Gaming has now begun in New York City, at an exciting time for the industry in several states.
The Annual Forum on US Online Gaming has just started at the Hilton Doubletree in New York City. This is the 6th year of the forum, and comes at a time of great change in the marketplace. With a number of states having legalised online gambling in the last year or so, and others potentially following, the US could soon have a multi-billion Dollar igaming industry that few in the business can ignore.
About the Forum
Hosted by C5 and the American Conference Institute, the Forum on US Online Gaming runs from 13th - 14th May and will be attended by experts on legislation, game developers, licensing authorities, online and land-based casino operators. Attendees will be able to learn from the experience and advice given out at the Forum, and find out what the current leaders in the market have learned so far in states like Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware.
Other topics up for discussion will include a detailed insight into the direction of future legislation across the USA, how land-based casinos can move into the online gaming markets and how operators should partner with game developers for success. There are many compliance issues for local igaming companies to overcome and the experts will be on hand to guide delegates through them.
The Future For US iGaming
It has been estimated that by 2020, overall revenues from online gambling in the USA could exceed $5.2 billion, with some 20 states having legalised it to various extents. New York, California, Pennsylvania and Illinois are all looking at raising revenue from it, but many challenges remain.
The Forum on US Online Gaming should go some way towards bringing operators, suppliers, legal entities and other experts together to get through the issues and make igaming a successful industry across the United States. Conveniently held in the centre of NYC, the 6th Forum should be the biggest and best yet.
