SPiCE India 2023 was a thrilling event that ended on a high note with an action-packed final day. After two busy days of absorbing knowledge and networking, attendees still had the energy to solidify new deals and ideas. This has been a special event that has left all attendees more informed and enthusiastic about the future of iGaming in India. The final day started with Christina Thakor-Rankin, Principal Consultant at 1710 Gaming, sharing some insights into the discussions ahead and the importance of collaboration in the rapidly growing Indian market.
Anish Lakhani, Owner of Casino Software India, then presented on the 28% tax on online casinos in India, followed by Srinivas Kotni, Founder & Managing Partner at Lexport, updating attendees on GST issues for the gaming industry. One important idea that emerged from these discussions is that tax can serve as an effective way to regulate the iGaming industry without the need for excessive government intervention, and the audience members found this an incredibly intriguing discussion.
The insights from the morning session carried over into discussions among attendees during the networking coffee break, where they also explored the exhibition floor for one last time. The bustling exhibition floor has been a platform for growth throughout the event, playing host to numerous deal signings and new partnerships. The success of the exhibition floor is a testament to the potential for iGaming growth in India.
The afternoon kicked off with a panel on the future of online gaming in Asia, moderated by Joe Pisano, CEO of Jade Entertainment & Gaming Technologies. The panellists Bhavesh Parthi, Managing Director, Oppa Asia Co., and Ashutosh Rawat, Game Marketing Consultant gave critical insights into the latest trends and opportunities in the industry.
The next panel focused on improving content and user experience, with moderator Harmen Brenninkmeijer, Managing Partner at NYCE International, leading a conversation between Joe Pisano and Rakesh Eligapalli, Co-Founder and CEO of Primecraft Games.
The third panel of the afternoon focused on opportunities for app and game developers in India, with Shweta Dubey, CEO, Digital Marketing and Chat Support Agency overseeing the discussion between experts Navneeth Srinivas, Founder, Metamine, and Abhishek Kumar, Vice President, Paytm First Games.
The final panel discussion examined the opportunities presented by India’s expected 100 million 5G users in 2023, moderated by Satya Mahapatra, iGaming Consultant at ROI Internet Marketing, with Sid Gupta, and Kumar Srijan. SPiCE India 2023 exceeded even the highest expectations, setting a new standard for iGaming events worldwide. The conference showcased unparalleled expertise, innovation, and excitement, leaving attendees informed and inspired about the future of iGaming in India. Delegates are now getting ready to celebrate the bright future of iGaming at the SPiCE India Eventus Awards and After Party, proudly sponsored by SA Gaming and SimplePlay.
