Eventus International’s event SPiCE (Strategic Platform for iGaming Conference & Exhibition) India has been confirmed for March 1-3, at the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa, marking its 4th edition. Preparations are “well underway” for the event, which is expected to bring together gaming industry stakeholders from the Indian subcontinent and beyond.
The upcoming edition of SPiCE India 2023 will feature a pre and post-event party and a specially curated poker tournament for the attendees. The event will focus on key areas that are major talking points in the Gaming industry in the region, including the current stance of the Indian government with regard to regulation.
As of late, the All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) has approached the Madras High Court challenging the constitutional validity of the 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 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, according to organizers. “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,” officials noted.
