Billions for These Thoughts: 52 Gaming Leaders Scheduled to Speak at GiGSE 2017

The specialisation of insight at this megaconference is so overwhelming it had to be divided into two streams.

Some major iGaming action will be making a rare appearance on the West Coast of the US later in the month.

Dual Streams

At the San Diego Marriot Marquis Marina, 26th - 28th April, the Global Interactive Gaming Summit and Expo GiGSE will feature 52 industry “thought leaders” delivering 40 hours of insight over the two streams Activate 2017 and Activate 2027.

Some Intriguing Speakers

Confirmed speakers to this point include Penchanga Resort and Casino Vice President and Chief Information Officer John Kenefick and Foxwood Director of Online Gambling Seth Young, who are set to leading a discussion entitled “Nurturing our Technology in Indian Country.”

Meanwhile, Fifth Street Gaming CEO Seth Schorr will participate in a panel exploring the current state of gaming's relationship with eSports.

Keynote Thought Leader

The keynote presentation will be delivered by Foxwood Resort Casino President and CEO Felix Rappaport, in a discussion entitled Keeping Your Foothold in the Future Entertainment Sector.

C-level Speaker List

Agenda curator Sadie Walters of Clarion GiGSE has compiled the roster of C-level speakers to meet the demands and harness the opportunities for operators of North American facing gaming brands.

Quality Guarantee

Of the GiGSE affair, Walters assured delegates of “expert analysis on casino based eSports offerings” to illustrate “how the gaming sector can gain market share of the $900 million eSports economy.”

The Activate 2017 Track

As for the two tracks, the Activate 2017 track offers insight on how relevant topics such as how to monetize digital features; effectively profile and target the current consumer base; retain and acquire more land-based consumers; and implement a successful social casino strategy.

The Activate 2027 Track

Meanwhile, Activate 2027 provides strategic guidance on navigating the next decade of gaming in the USA by introducing evolutionary gaming concepts, outside industry input and regulatory debates at the highest level.


This looks to be one of iGaming’s most powerful and potentially productive conferences, with networking opportunities that stretch to the farthest frontiers of iGaming and beyond.
