Eventus International will kick start its 2023 event calendar with the 4th edition of SPiCE (Strategic Platform for iGaming Conference & Exhibition) India 2023 and preparations are well underway for what will be an exciting gathering that will once again bring together Gaming industry stakeholders from the Indian subcontinent and beyond. This renowned event will be held at the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa in India from 1 – 3 March 2023.

The event will focus on key areas that are major talking points in the Gaming industry in the region. This includes the current stance of the Indian government with regard to regulation. What could happen if and when the market is regulated? What is the expected time frame for legalisation? We look forward to sharing and discussing the lessons learnt from other countries as well as the challenges and opportunities in the industry.

A few of the listed talking points are already making headlines with the industry. For example, the All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) has approached the Madras High Court challenging the constitutional validity of Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Online Gambling and Regulation of Online Games Ordinance, 2022. They have asked the court to stay the operation of the ordinance until the disposal of their main case to declare it as unconstitutional.

As news regarding the industry in this region continues to develop, Eventus and speakers at this event are keeping up-to-date with it all and will deliver an event that touches on the latest and most important talking points affecting the gaming industry in this region and globally. This will provide individuals and companies the opportunity to network, learn and share valuable insider information to boost their own growth as well as that of the industry.

With a glamorous pre and post-event party and a specially curated poker tournament for the attendees, SPiCE India 2023 will be a fantastic event for participants and attendees.
