"This is a very nice initiative to create and develop such kind of event in the Baltic countries.  By working together and establishing a strong base no matter is it compliance or marketing, we build the right environment for the future development of the business and society.
Baltics are small but at the same time are very different in many aspects. It's becoming challenging to replicate the previous experience in the new markets and such events are here to help us. Organizational wise - on a very high level. It's hard to say where did we benefit more - from the main event of from the networking parts."

Sara Urbanovicova (Chief Commercial Officer at Tom Horn Gaming)Sara Urbanovicova (Chief Commercial Officer at Tom Horn Gaming)https://www.tomhorngaming.com/

"This is a fantastic event and it is sure to establish itself as a must-attend conference in the diary for the online gaming community. Its Baltic and Scandinavian focus, with a careful selection of high-quality speakers on the panels, an amazing location, organizers’ dedication to creating a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, make it a one-of-a-kind event that proved to be really productive for us. We’re sure to return next year!"
