MONTREAL, Quebec -- Bodog.com is further establishing its leadership role in the booming I-gaming industry with its presence at the Global Internet Gaming Summit & Expo (GIGSE) 2006. The conference,
Calvin Ayer, CEO of Bodog.com to be attended by over 1,500 online gaming execs, takes place May 16-18 at the Palais Des Congres in Montreal.
"We are looking forward to GIGSE," says Calvin Ayre, Bodog.com Founder and CEO. "It's a great opportunity to network with our peers, and take the online gaming industry to a new level of quality and entertainment value for the players."
Bodog.com executives will host a media mixer and have a large booth presence in the exhibit hall.
Additionally, Ayre, the highest-profile CEO in the industry, will appear on the "The Impact of I-Gaming: What Have We Done?" panel on May 18 at 11:30 a.m.
With online gambling no longer a stranger to the world, the panel will discuss the success of the industry as well as its future. With the proliferation of poker on TV, cover stories in major magazines, unforgettable publicity stunts, multimillion-dollar sponsorships and appearances on the big and small screens, the phenomenon of online gambling has woven itself into the culture of every modern society in the world. It has created scores of new millionaires and even a few billionaires; it has led to new jobs and bolstered economies in small jurisdictions; it has been the source of heightened social concerns; it has challenged policy makers and led to both friction and synergy between competing governments; it has been a catalyst in the modernization of commerce; and it has exposed the truly global nature of the Internet, imposing a borderless medium on a world that in so many ways knows only how to carry on within fixed boundaries. Indeed, online gambling is a topic more than worthy of attention and who better to reflect upon the industry's impact than Ayre, the subject of the cover story for Forbes "Billionaires" issue in March?
The roundtable discussion at GIGSE is sure to capture the interest of insiders, outsiders, newcomers and veterans alike (the audience will be invited to join as well).
This summer, Bodog.com will bring industry leaders together again at the 2006 Bodog.com Marketing Conference. Scheduled for July 23-25 at the Wynn Las Vegas, the conference attracts the top names in online sports betting, racebook betting, poker and casino gambling, including the major online gambling operators, handicappers, affiliates, advertisers and suppliers.
The third annual Bodog.com Marketing Conference features the theme Seduce, Induce, Ignite. Seduce = Get new customers - always a goal of any successful business. Induce = keeping customers loyal. Ignite = how to grow a business venture to its fullest.
In addition to keynote speaker Magic Johnson, this year's Bodog.com Marketing Conference will include industry leaders from the worlds of online gaming, online marketing, public relations, technology and the mainstream corporate sector.
