The International Association of Gaming Advisors (IAGA) announced today that it has opened registration for its 2022 International Gaming Summit to be held June 27 – 29 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, Massachusetts.
As a premier event that brings together leaders from all global gaming sectors, the Summit will provide operators, suppliers, attorneys, investors, bankers, regulators and other advisor delegates with an unparalleled opportunity to meet and discuss the most important issues facing gaming.
Addressing topics ranging from the ongoing North American expansion of sports betting and online gaming, the growing impact data privacy and cybersecurity have on regulated gaming and the industry’s expanding ESG efforts and accountability, each Summit session will provide valuable insight into critical issues facing global gaming.
IAGA is working closely with Fairmont and evening event teams to ensure that the Summit will incorporate appropriate COVID safety protocols while still providing the exceptional education and networking opportunities for which the Summit is well known.
“We are looking forward to holding IAGA’s 39th Annual International Gaming Summit in Boston this June,” commented Luke Orchard, IAGA President and Senior Vice President, Chief Compliance and Risk Management Officer for IGT. “As in prior years, our compelling Summit program will focus on gaming issues of international relevance and provide our delegates an opportunity to discuss the issues with their global colleagues in a collaborative, thought-provoking setting.”
“I am also pleased to announce that during our Boston Summit, we will hold our first annual Regulator Workshop, a series of closed-door meetings where regulators will receive in-depth education on critical issues and be able to collaboratively discuss solutions and best practices with their colleagues,” continued Mr. Orchard.
“We are currently working with top regulators in North America to determine the agenda and timing for these sessions and will provide more details when we announce our full Summit agenda next month. I look forward to welcoming our delegates to Boston and participating with them in lively discussions about the critical issues and opportunities facing global gaming for which IAGA’s annual Summit is so well-known.”
Summit Evening Events Announced
IAGA also announced the Summit’s evening social events:
• Welcome to Boston Opening Reception: Sunday, June 26 from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
We’ll open our 2022 Summit with a welcome reception in the Fairmont Copley Plaza’s iconic Oval Room that features Louis XIV décor, a cloud and sky mural on the ceiling, and faithfully restored relief work. During the 1930s, the Oval Room was “the” place to be for special events and was frequented by artist John Singer Sargent and patron Isabella Stewart Gardner.
• President’s Reception and Dinner: Monday, June 27 from 7 – 10 p.m.
A visit to Boston wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Fenway Park. In 2022, we’ll celebrate our President’s Dinner with a baseball-focused evening at Fenway complete with private tours, great food and plenty of opportunities to watch the Sox play in Toronto.
• Closing Reception: Wednesday, June 29 from 6 – 8 p.m.
We’ll close our 2022 Summit with an evening at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. The site of the world’s largest art heist to date, our evening will include tours of the galleries where the empty frames still hang and cocktails around the courtyard.
