Monday, 12 September 2016

The 13th annual Isle of Man E-Gaming Summit (8 September) has been hailed a great success by those in attendance with a record number of international delegates and companies represented at the event.

Laurence Skelly, Minister for the Department of Economic Development commented:

‘The  success of this summit underpins the achievements of the E-Gaming sector on the Isle of Man. E-Gaming and E-Business now equate to 25% of the Island’s GDP and events such as this help drive that performance. The Department strongly encourages and supports businesses across all sectors to run industry events on Island and we are delighted to once again support the Summit.

‘Well-run events give investors and developers vital information, networking opportunities and, ultimately, the confidence to invest in the Island. I would like to congratulate KPMG for running such a dynamic and forward thinking event for industry this year.’

Mark Robson, Head of E-Gaming for the Isle of Man Government commented:

‘E-Gaming and E-Business continue to provide a fantastic source of growth for the Island’s economy. I was delighted to speak alongside other industry experts and thought leaders from a wide variety of businesses at the E-Gaming summit and it was a pleasure to reconnect with those esteemed colleagues within the informal setting of the eClub event at the Palace Casino.’

The one-day e-Gaming Summit included sessions and master classes that covered key sector commentary and regulatory challenges and opportunities. The wider programme encompassed emerging trends and risks in Fintech, Data, cyber security and blockchain technology.
