Monday 12 September 2011 – Optimal Payments Plc (LSE: OPAY), a leading online payments provider, will be sponsoring and speaking at the eGaming Review Power Summit USA on 12 to 13 September, to be held at the Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain, Scottsdale, Arizona. Joel Leonoff, President & CEO of Optimal Payments, is scheduled to speak on the Payments, Fraud and Social Responsibility panel on Tuesday September 13, at 10.45 a.m.
The chief executives, presidents and COOs of some of North America’s largest land-based casinos, tribes, lotteries and race wagering businesses will gather at the Sanctuary Resort for this exclusive, invite-only, online gambling event organised by eGaming Review in partnership with Macquarie Capital. Around 50 senior executives from some of the most powerful US gaming companies, with a combined EBITDA in excess of US$5bn, will meet with their European counterparts to discuss how they can work in partnership as the US looks to regulate online gambling in the coming years.
The specially designed content across two days will educate US operators on key operational considerations in running an online gaming business, and provide them with key data and insight into understanding and benchmarking the offering and performance of potential partners. An important element of the event is high level networking where delegates will be able to interact and seek out potential partners during a number of specially designed events including golf and a poker tournament.
