Innovation and the Canadian Gaming Association
By Paul Burns, President and CEO, Canadian Gaming Association
The Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) recently attended the ICE Totally Gaming conference in London as an opportunity to put the spotlight on innovation in the Canadian gaming industry.
The CGA created CGA@ICE – Telling Canada’s Innovation Story, a two-hour program featuring Canadian gaming entrepreneurs, experts, and pioneers who discussed Canada’s contributions to the global gaming industry and explained the benefits of developing technology and building businesses in a country that has many great resources to share.
The originality, strength, and impact of the Canadian gaming industry on the global scene are already well known but I was curious to see what the reaction would be to a focus on Canadian innovation at a global conference.
The feedback I received was enthusiastic and supportive, and there could be room for us to do more at ICE in the future. Canada’s role in gaming is significant and there is a lot to talk about when it comes to technology, and new Canadian products and services. Canadians have been leaders and innovators on the global scene in areas such as gaming technology, gaming operations and responsible gaming, and the CGA looks forward to sharing this story and showcasing our industry’s achievements.
