The Internet Gaming industry has shown explosive growth from a mere handful of operators to over 300 today, and is projected to reach $10 billion in the new millenium, up from $600 million today. Once dismissed by the traditional gaming industry, Internet Gaming has become a serious competitor for gamblers' dollars, and some traditional gaming companies are now getting into the Internet gaming market.
The meeting's focus is on the relationship between Internet Gaming vs. Traditional Gaming: Adversaries or Allies? Internet Gaming leaders from more than 28 countries are expected to attend the conference. The complete program can be viewed at www.bioconferences.com.
