Hipther is set to return for its sixth year with the ever-successful MARE BALTICUM Gaming and TECH Summit following a sell-out 2022 event.

Hipther’s two-day Baltic and Nordic-focused summit returns on 16th May, 2023, in Riga, Latvia, at the Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga, with more than 45 industry-leading speakers from across the gaming and tech industries.

MARE BALTICUM Gaming and TECH Summit has seen growing demand as it prepares to welcome more creative thinkers and innovators from across the Baltic and Nordic region’s iGaming, eSports, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Fintech, VR and FashionTech sectors to share their unique insights.

Along with main stage sponsors Tom Horn and silver sponsor Evoplay, the event will also welcome backers Nordic Gambling, nanocosmos, Oddin, Black Cat Card, Rite NRG and 7777 Gaming.

The boutique event’s extensive schedule of expert speakers will include Andrius Gabnys (Gabnys.Gabniene), Kaido Ulejev (Betsson Group), Anne Veerpalu, PhD (TECH x LEGAL) and Saulius Racevicius (Fintech Hub LT), with its wide roster of presenters discussing topics such as key market updates, innovation vs regulation and the role of AI and Fintech.

The summit will also see the return of the prestigious Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards) and BTECH Awards 2023 which will be hosted at the Grand Hotel Kempinski’s Grand Ballroom, with industry leaders such as Playson, Sportradar, Yggdrasil and Entain shortlisted.

Totalling 36 nomination categories, the awards event recognises significant achievements across the Baltic and Scandinavian gaming industries.

To continue its commitment to awards transparency, the final winners of each shortlist category will be decided by a special voting session held over the day of the conference.

Commenting on the return of the MARE BALTICUM Gaming and TECH Summit, Zoltan Tuendik, Co-founder and Head of Business and Events at Hipther said:  “Returning with the sixth edition of the MARE BALTICUM Gaming and TECH Summit is a huge pleasure for us and we are set for a sell-out event yet again.
