Show cements its status as the unmissable mid-year European-based event for the global igaming community.

iGB L!VE, which takes place across 11-14 July at the RAI Amsterdam, will this year comprise a gross 14,805sqm dedicated to product, learning and networking. The net figure, which reflects the space occupied by exhibitors, stands at 5,870sqm. This makes it 30% bigger than the previous high of 4,513sqm recorded last year.

Confirming the double-digit growth, Naomi Barton, Clarion Gaming’s portfolio director responsible for the iGB L!VE brand, said: “This is outstanding news for industry professionals planning their visit to Amsterdam in July. A 30% year-on-year increase from what was already a strong base is a landmark achievement and underlines the huge faith that the industry has in the iGB L!VE brand. 

“The increase in floor space is reflected in the number of exhibitors who will have a presence in Amsterdam: that figure stands at 207 compared with the previous high of 173 – an increase of 20%. The fact that 2023 will be the biggest iGB L!VE by such a long way reflects its growing reputation for being a strategically pivotal, not-to-be-missed mid-year event in the igaming industry calendar.” 

The exhibitor lineup reads like a who’s who of the industry with leading affiliate brands including Bet365, 888, Betsson Group Affiliates, VBet, Mate Affiliates, N1 Partners, LeoVegas Affiliates and Betwinner featured alongside high-profile B2B names such as BetConstruct, Greentube, Amusnet Interactive, Pragmatic Play, Delasport, Softgamings, Paysafe and Jeton Bank.

In addition to iGB L!VE’s lineup of world-class exhibitors, delegates will also have access to a powerful learning programme. It will be delivered from the new iGB PULSE content theatre, workshop and networking space, which will also serve as a hub for industry media.  

iGB L!VE will feature two content-rich days with streams delivered by teams of expert speakers. 

Wednesday 12 July is dedicated to new markets. The business-centric topics will include a review of the global igaming map, an assessment of new frontiers within Europe, game content for new markets, localising brands for Latin America and a session examining the off-shore licence. 

The following day the focus switches to content specifically curated for the igaming affiliate sector. Key topics comprise an analysis of the winners and losers in the AI wars, the impact of Google updates and what they mean to affiliates, mastering influencer marketing, an SEO update including what to expect in Q3 and Q4 of 2023 and an assessment of the most promising geolocations.

The trio comprises Eric Sjöden, presidency’s advisor European and international affairs at French regulator ANJ, Geraldine Huijssoon, head of analysis and research at Kansspelautoriteit in the Netherlands and Dr Martina Cilia, senior legal counsel for the Malta Gaming Authority.

Additional show features include iGB L!VE’s first Consumer Protection Zone (CPZ) which will host a collective of organisations comprising technology providers and not-for-profit organisations.
