Attendees will also speculate on the implications for land-based casinos, sporting competitions, and the future technology demands.
Leading the South Africa discussion will be Eventus international project director Yudi Soetjiptadi, who will dissect the action plan as he guides attendees through the various ramifications. Other prominent figures delivering keynote presentations will include these respected individuals: Hon. Geordin Hill-Lewis, shadow minister of DTI, MacDonald Netshitenzhe, a director with DTI, Professor Linda de Vries from the National Gambling Board, and Professor Brian Kantor from Investec Wealth and Investment.
