The Global Poker Index (GPI) will be hosting the European Poker Conference on March 25th2014 at The Portomaso Marina Hilton Hotel, St. Julian’s, Malta.
The goal of the diverse conference is to give poker world representatives more easily discuss and address trending industry topics, offer them a place to network and become more tightly inter-connected, and discover the Global Poker Index’s many new and existing initiatives.
Participants will have a chance to meet players and tournament organizers, to networking with new prospective projects and partnerships between poker rooms, tournament tour/ event managers, and industry stakeholders, to gain knowledge on new technologies to better equip professional cash games and live tournaments to operate more effectively and more seamlessly and to hear more of GPI’s latest updates and many new industry initiatives.
The conference will be held at the same time as the European Poker Awards— an event celebrating the achievements of players, industry operators, and personalities within the thriving European poker scene for over 13 years.
After a triumphant debut with the inaugural American Poker Awards in February, GPI and its leader, Alexandre Dreyfus announced the nominees for nine categories and the winners of some pre-determined awards using the GPI rankings system.
“The event will have a similar setup to the American Poker Awards,” Dreyfus stated during the announcement of the nominees. “However, this will be the first time the European Poker Awards will be held outside of France…we always had success at the EPT Deauville (the location of previous EPA awards ceremonies) and hopefully going to Malta during its inaugural European Poker Tour event will make it easier for the players to attend.”
Ole Schemion will pick up the European Player of the Year award, duplicating his effort from 2013. On the ladies side, Liv Boeree will be the recipient of the Female Player of the Year.
