Regarding the participation of prominent panelists, Renzo Escalante, CEO of Play Advisors, one of the highlighted panelists at the event, shared his insightful observations: “Conferences IGaming is an excellent space to learn more about the industry and understand many processes that we often don’t know why they occur. Today, it is crucial to delve into certain topics to comprehend the industry’s movements. The era of empty strategies where players were few and easily recognizable is over; now, the universe is more extensive, and we are finally competing with the entire adult entertainment sector”.

That’s why we designed the virtual conferences to continue educating ourselves and exchanging ideas from anywhere in the world about the iGaming market and the best in the industry. We already appreciate everyone’s attendance; it will be a day full of knowledge”.
