With AI, blockchain, robotics, and big data driving the digital age into the future, delegates tuning in for AIBC Americas will gain access to a plethora of fresh content focussing on emerging tech. AIBC Americas enjoys premium content and a networking platform that provides an opportunity to learn from some of the brightest minds of the industry, strike deals with the biggest brands, and engage leading suppliers. Delegates can expect a prominent lineup of over a 100 speakers, including Peter McCormack, David Orban, Marcelo Garcia, and Gavin Brown.
Headline topics and panels include in depth regional focus points, with topics such as Focus Brazil: Could gambling legalisation save Brazil from its financial crisis? looking at Brazil’s economy within the gambling ecosystem. Panels will also examine the investment potential in the Americas, as well the obstacles the sector still faces, with topics such as The Payment Sector: Addressing a primary challenge in LatAm providing plenty of scope for debate.
The summit will also look at the rise of smart cities, with guest speakers chiming in from a plethora of organisations, including the United Nations.
