"Where the Canadian Gaming Industry Meets"

About

2022 Summit Theme: Canada –
A World of New Opportunities
 

The 2022 Canadian Gaming Summit will occur from June 7– 9 in Toronto, Canada’s largest and most vibrant city. We are excited to be back in our normal face-to-face format for 2022 and look forward to welcoming you to the only conference and trade show in Canada serving the entire Canadian gaming industry. This annual event is built on its extensive educational program developed by educational program committees and the gaming industry at large. The Summit also provides delegates with several peer-to peer networking opportunities and meals and access to a trade show floor that features many recognizable firms offering a wide array of gaming industry products and services.

While COVID-19 resulted in the unprecedented closure of gaming facilities across Canada, the latter half of 2021 saw a considerable and impressive rebound as casinos reopened nationwide and many operators pivoted increasingly towards a new world of casino operations and digital gaming. Those pivots have led to new innovative technologies, shifted physical spacing and security demands on the gaming floor, the proliferation of cashless operations, and so much more. There are also significant developments to discuss outside of land-based gaming. The enacting of legalized single-event sports betting promises a world of huge opportunity as provinces, led by Ontario, will open up their markets to private operators from inside and outside Canada in 2022. In addition, Ontario also looks set to lead the way by getting its new iGaming market off the ground, and operators and suppliers alike continue to innovate with impressive results. This all points to increased and sustained demand for new and innovative products and the long-term resurgence of investment in gaming in Canada. Heading into 2022, Canada’s gaming industry is a source of much attention and admiration around the world. There is so much for us all to demonstrate, to discuss, to learn. It’s truly an exciting time to be part of this great industry.

The Canadian Gaming Summit is proudly produced by the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) and MediaEdge Communications. The Summit delivers face-to-face interaction with senior-level decision makers from across Canada and beyond. Our attending delegates represent all gaming sectors and disciplines including: Provincial Lottery and Gaming Corporations, Private Operators, Casinos, Racetracks/racinos, Community Gaming/Bingo, First Nations, Gaming Regulatory Agencies, Legal, Finance, Procurement, Security & Surveillance, HR, Responsible Gaming, IT, Marketing, and much more.
