The Indian Gaming Association and iGaming Business have teamed up to launch the DigitalPlay Summit, a new opportunity to connect the expertise of US tribal and commercial operators with stakeholders from the world of online sports betting and igaming sectors.

Taking place on 10-11 April at the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention in Anaheim, California, the summit will help shape the future of the North American gambling industry.

Brands including AGEM, Geocomply and Everi have already confirmed their presence in the DPS’ dedicated section on the show floor, with a host of other leading industry names set to follow. 

A main stage for conference sessions will also take its place within the exclusive event zone providing a platform for an array of educational sessions led by industry thought leaders and experts. 

The Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention is the premier event for the tribal gaming industry and the longest-running gaming expo in the US. It has always led the discussions on the future of gaming and innovations, which is why hosting the DigitalPlay Summit at the 2024 event presents the opportunity to build the foundation for this emerging, potential-rich market. 

The merger of the two shows allows for a broader range of topics and discussions and provides a more valuable experience for everyone involved. 

Key highlights for the DigitalPlay Summit are set to include: 

The entire igaming ecosystem: Connects the expertise of US tribal and commercial operators with insights from the established European online gaming market – the first event to do so in North America – for greater perspective and growth potential. 

Expert insights and knowledge exchange: Expert-led topics will cover the entire gaming ecosystem from slots to casinos, esports to sportsbooks, payments and more. Sports betting is currently legal in over 38 states, with more looking to legalise it in the coming years. As this market continues to grow, now is the time to start the conversations for the future.  

Networking opportunities: Leaders across multiple igaming sectors, including casino and games, esports, slots, payments, sports betting and more will have the opportunity to connect and forge new partnerships. 

The DigitalPlay Summit will also showcase the first Consumer Protection Zone (CPZ) – an interactive space showcasing the most effective tools and technologies for a more compliant and safe gambling operation. 

Ernie Stevens Jr, chairman of the Indian Gaming Association, said: “Everything we do is about advancing economic self-sufficiency through gaming and other forms of economic development for tribal communities and building a sustainable future. We’re doing that by moving this industry forward.

“By creating a dedicated section to focus on igaming and sports betting, we’re taking a proactive stance and inviting the world’s leading providers and operators to join us in an exciting evolution.”
