The capital city of Spain, Madrid, will be the setting for the 2009 Gaming Executive Summit Europe between July 7 – 9 this year, held in the comfortable and convivial surroundings of the Eurostars Madrid Tower.
 
Now in its third year, this high level conference is regarded by many executives as the industry’s defining management event. The 2009 agenda agenda will be taking a close look at the relationships between virtual and real world gambling and appropriate strategies to get the best out of both.  Delegates will be given an analytical perspective on diverse strategies, backed by case history studies on convergance across a national, regional and pan-European landscape.
 
Latin America and its potential and challenges will also be addressed, and the future of the industry in general will be debated in open and frank discussions.
 
The final day of the conference has been given over to workshops examining emerging markets, starting with a critical assessment of Russia’s move to shut down all casinos and slot machine parlours outside of four remote gaming zones from July 2009. Eastern Europe’s emergence as a major area of interest for gaming operators will be sure to attract attention, as will the latest legislative views and news from EU experts in Brussels.
