Canadian Gaming Summit

Due to take place in several weeks, the Canadian Gaming Summit will focus on a multi-faced approach to the local gambling industry. The gathering will pay particular attention to industry areas such as affiliate marketing, with a now freshly announced focus on marketing success.

Thanks to the Affiliate & Advertising conference track, the event can become a platform for marketing panjandrums who can help broach the often difficult topics of maximizing loyalty and CRM technologies, as well as building operator-affiliate partnerships that are increasingly challenging for the sector in the face of stiff competition and ratcheting demand for innovation.

The conference track will take place on Thursday, June 20, on Day 2 of the core event, and it will focus on innovative fan engagement strategies and who the next generation of players are. This event will see a number of well-known industry insiders take the stage as part of a number of panels. Here are several of the panels and their speakers to look forward to.
