The show takes place July 11-14 at the RAI Amsterdam and will occupy 160,000 square feet dedicated to products, learning, and networking. The 63,000 square feet occupied by exhibitors are 30% more than the previous high of 47,000 square feet recorded last year.

Confirming the double-digit growth, Naomi Barton, Clarion Gaming’s Portfolio Director responsible for the iGB L!VE brand, said, “This is outstanding news for industry professionals planning their visit to Amsterdam in July. A 30% year-on-year increase from what was already a strong base is a landmark achievement and underlines the huge faith that the industry has in the iGB L!VE brand.

“The increase in floor space is reflected in the number of exhibitors with a presence in Amsterdam. That figure stands at 207 compared with the previous high of 173, an increase of 20%. The fact that 2023 will be the biggest iGB L!VE by such a long way reflects its growing reputation for being a strategically pivotal not-to-be missed mid-year event in the igaming industry calendar.”

The exhibitor line-up reads like a Who’s Who of the industry, with leading affiliate brands including Bet365, 888, Betsson Group Affiliates, VBet, Mate Affiliates, N1 Partners, LeoVegas Affiliates, and Betwinner featured, alongside high-profile b2b names such as BetConstruct, Greentube, Amusnet Interactive, Pragmatic Play, Delasport, Softgamings, Paysafe and Jeton Bank.

In addition to iGB L!VE’S line-up of exhibitors, delegates will also have access to a learning program. It will be delivered from the new iGB PULSE content theater, workshop, and networking space, which will also serve as a hub for industry media.

iGB L!VE will feature two content-rich days with streams delivered by teams of expert speakers.

Wednesday July 12 is dedicated to new markets. The business-centric topics will include a review of the global igaming map, an assessment of new frontiers within Europe, game content for new markets, localizing brands for Latin America, and a session examining the offshore license.

On Thursday July 13, the focus switches to content specifically curated for the igaming-affiliate sector. Key topics comprise an analysis of the winners and losers in the AI wars, the impact of Google updates and what they mean to affiliates, mastering influencer marketing, an SEO update including what to expect in Q3 and Q4 of 2023, and an assessment of the most promising geolocations.

The Opening Panel at iGB L!VE features senior policy makers and advisors representing France, The Netherlands, and Malta. The trio consists of Eric Sjöden, Presidency’s Advisor, European and International Affairs at French Regulator ANJ; Geraldine Huijssoon, Head of Analysis and Research, Kansspelautoriteit, The Netherlands; and Dr. Martina Cilia, Senior Legal Counsel, Malta Gaming Authority.

Additional features of the show include iGB L!VE’S first Consumer Protection Zone (CPZ), which will host a collective of technology providers and not-for-profit organizations. Visitors attending the CPZ will have access to the tools to ensure they are compliant in relation to issues such as affordability requirements, stake limits, and restrictions placed on marketing and advertising.
