Press Release - The Evolution of Prague Gaming & TECH Summit

by Dave Sawyer

In the rapidly evolving worlds of igaming and technology, few events have managed to encapsulate the spirit of innovation and forward-thinking dialogue quite like the Prague Gaming & TECH Summit. 

Since its inception, this summit has been a beacon for industry leaders, a platform where the future of igaming and technology merge in a symphony of ideas, trends, and collaborations. Let’s take a moment to explore the journey of this illustrious event, from its early days to its current standing as a cornerstone of the tech and gaming industries.

The Early Years: Laying the Foundation

Launched in 2017, the Prague Gaming Summit was created to complement the Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference (CEEGC) in Budapest. Its mission was clear: to gather industry leaders and create a vibrant forum for the discussion of innovations and forward-thinking subjects in the igaming industry. 

What set the Prague Gaming Summit apart was its unwavering commitment to fostering dialogue on the future directions of the gaming sector. This dedication quickly cemented the event’s reputation, making it a favorite among many.

Expanding Horizons: The Introduction of TECH Conference Europe

Recognizing the interconnectedness of the gaming industry with other technological spheres, HIPTHER, the organizer behind the summit, launched a series of conferences in 2019 targeting participants from outside the igaming world. 

This series, titled TECH Conference Europe, focused on emerging fields such as blockchain, fintech, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and cybersecurity, among others. Hosted in Prague, this conference aimed to bridge the gap between igaming and the broader tech industry, sparking conversations and collaborations that extended well beyond traditional gaming boundaries.

A Milestone Merge: The Birth of Prague Gaming & TECH Summit

In 2023, a significant evolution took place—the TECH Conference Europe merged with the Prague Gaming Summit to form the Prague Gaming & TECH Summit. This fusion brought together participants from multiple industries, resulting in another sold-out conference and a doubling of attendee numbers. 

The merge was a strategic move that reflected the blurring lines between gaming, technology, and other related sectors, offering a more comprehensive and holistic platform for discussion and networking.

Looking to the Future: The Consolidated Prague Gaming & TECH Summit

Moving forward into 2024, the decision to consolidate the individual Central and Eastern Europe events into a single, unified Prague Gaming & TECH Summit marks a new chapter in the event’s history. 

This consolidation is expected to attract even more delegates and industry professionals, providing them with an unparalleled opportunity to exchange knowledge, network, and forge new business relationships within the thriving tech and gambling ecosystems.

The 2024 edition of the summit boasts an impressive lineup: over 85 speakers, 30 sessions, more than 250 participants from multiple industries and jurisdictions, three network parties, an awards ceremony, a boutique exhibition space, and countless opportunities for learning and networking.
