The initial Casino eSports Conference, to be held at the Westgate Las Vegas, is scheduled for Sept. 7th and 8th. It will also segue into Gameacon, a video gaming convention on Sept. 9th and 10th, also hosted by the Westgate.
The producers of the Casino eSports Conference say their goal is to link eSports hardware suppliers, eSports teams, tournament organizers, streaming companies, publishers, marketers, lawyers, educators and game makers to the casino industry.
The bi-annual Game Arts Conference, also known as Gameacon, unites gaming fans and game developers, in an effort to display new ideas in the gaming realm.
The casino industry, in an effort to attract younger players to casino floors nationwide, is currently embracing eSports as it explores ways of joining together gambling and gaming to generate added revenue.
