One for the techies….

The importance of technology in the online gambling industry is obvious, making this an important event and one that will be bringing together operators, developers, providers and company chiefs seeking knowledge and interaction with their counterparts in other companies and sectors of the business.
 
Among the subjects to be addressed by an impressive range of speakers are:
 
* What are the steps involved in adopting a regulatory framework which is technology neutral, together with a security framework tailored on the remote gambling industry?
 
* What new products are on the market, and what is the latest trends for 2011 and beyond?
 
* To what extent should we steer clear of adding a fake social layer to an existing website, and should gambling become part of the social trend?
 
• Will tablet devices disrupt PC sales and how will they impact online gambling?
 
• How do we establish tools and processes that track data movement and records where it is stored, how it is accessed, and who is using it? The cloud concept, for example.
 
• What are the new and emerging payment methods and how can they be used to tap into new markets?
