History of the CEC

The CEC was started 7 years ago by the Fox brothers Ari and Ben Fox to teach and integrate the gambling and esports industries to pave the future for the brick-and-mortar and online casino market. Today the CEC has expanded its education conferences to include Web 3, NFTs, the Metaverse, Immersive experiences, and VR.AR and MR among other topics. These subjects are presented by people within these fields to the casino industry to educate and share ideas with those outside the casino industry. This helps enlighten the gambling industry about the possibilities of what the CEC calls Techtainment. These expansive discussions are taught at the annual Las Vegas CEC which will be held from February 27 to March 1, 2023, at Alexis Park in Las Vegas. The CEC/EIC is a newer summit that will mainly focus on esports.

Dates and more:

The Fox Brothers are also the founders of Gameacon, a consumer-focused convention that started in Atlantic City back in 2015. The Fox brothers are returning with Gameacon this year at the Showboat Hotel.
