The sixth annual Casino Esport Conference is set for the 23rd and the 24th of March in Las Vegas, USA, and prominent speakers are lined up for the event as wagering on esports has picked up during the pandemic.
Among the speakers is Tyler Bushnell, CEO and co-founder of Polycade, a modern arcade platform for in-person social gaming. Other speakers include Robert Heller, CEO of Spectrum Gaming Capital; Dr. Laila Mintas, former CEO of PlayUp Inc; Giovanna Fessenden, an intellectual-property attorney and esports legal expert; Larry Jaeger, CEO of Sponsors Burst Esports and founder of 24-Z Esports Consulting; and Tael Tamar, co-CEO of SolidBlock.
The conference agenda will cover the current state of esports in casinos, colleges, and finance and delve into what’s happening globally. There’s even discussion on the potential for the use of cryptocurrency in esports wagering and what can be done to take advantage of betting on college esports teams just like in college football and basketball.
This year’s event will involve NFTs and how to attract younger audiences and cryptocurrency and the landscape of the video-game industry that’s changing so rapidly. Casinos will get updated on what has moved the entire community to another plateau that they may not even be aware of.
There’s an expansion of the video-gaming industry that goes beyond video gaming. It now goes into the concepts of the metaverse (the digital universe) and how you create an experience. How the metaverse and its uses are good for the casino industry for continuing to connect with its future audience on a 24/7 basis, will be discussed.
