The stand-out conference sessions from iGSS 2017

The content on show at this year's event was particularly high so picking stand-out sessions has been incredibly difficult.

Do you agree with our top three conferences sessions?

3. The industry landscape: Affiliates in igaming with Jake Pollard, Head of Content at iGaming Business

This was a session that we are immensely proud of. "The industry landscape: Affiliates in igaming" session took key insights from our recent report of the same title. Despite being the first session to take place on day two of the iGaming Super Show, the room was almost at capacity with plenty of delegates forced to stand.

Jake Pollard ran through some of the more interesting points from the full report and gave delegates an interesting analysis of what the data means and where it could take the sector. The audience fought off the early morning tiredness and got fully involved with a long Q&A session that forced Jake's talk to run over time.

One thing is for sure, once the second edition is released in 2018, we are going to see some fascinating year on year comparisons.

Watch this space. 


2. Bitcoin’s Smart Future:  Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Bots & How The Bitcoin Network Will Change the World with Dr. Craig Wright Chief Scientist, nChain

This one was always going to be controversial, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are a huge topic within the industry right now and who better to speak about it than the unconfirmed rumoured creator of Bitcoin (we are being diplomatic and leaving that one there).

Wright's theories and beliefs seem to be as much social and cultural as they are technological. The bitcoin-backed society he describes and envisages is a new paradigm enabled by the cryptocurrency, which would go far beyond being just a payment mechanism and would effectively be the technological architecture of this brave new world.

This session was part of the exclusive iGaming Executive Conference so only a select few managed to see it live. If you would like to catch up and watch this session back, you can do so by taking out a free trial of iGaming Business here -


1. Growth Marketing Power Session with David Arnoux, Co-Founder & Head of Growth at Growth Tribe

Every now and then we have a session at our shows that really surprises us. This year's surprise was David Arnoux's "Growth Marketing Power Session". David spoke with such clarity, his ideas were clear and concise - he had a full house of delegates hanging off his every word. 

David gave delegates a crash course in growth marketing and provided some great case studies of where and how it has worked and how it can transform a marketing team. His session was action packed with more tips, tricks and tools than you could get down on paper. The audience clearly couldn't get enough of David following the session and formed an orderly queue to grab a few snippets of wisdom.

One thing is for sure, we will certainly be trying to get David back to speak in the future. Keep your eyes peeled for David at one of our future conferences and make sure to check out the audio of his session once it is live on the iGB Affiliate website.
