The Eventus Media team (a division of Eventus International) announced the entire line up of speakers and topics that you will get to see at Stockholmsmässan, Stockholm, Sweden from 5-6 September 2018, for the Scandinavian Gaming Show.

This new format agenda ensures that there is an even mix of subject matter throughout the conference and gives the audience a natural flow of ideas from one topic to the next. It also makes it easier for delegates to plan meeting around their interests.

“After producing a number of events for Eventus International, I realized that every sector has four main subject areas that are interesting to A-level executives; regulation and legislation, innovation and technology, marketing and operations, and leadership and strategy. Gaining the most relevant and up-to-date information on these four topic areas is crucial to thriving and surviving in any market. Especially in soon-to-be newly regulated markets such as Sweden” – Jordan Crossley, Conference Producer, Eventus International

Eventus International is proud of the fantastic networking opportunities that attendees will get to experience at the summit. As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to meet and gain the perspectives of 25 of Scandinavia’s leading experts in gaming, law, marketing and technology.
