Attorney Jeff Ifrah to speak at the Daily Fantasy Sports Expo in Miami Beach on August 6-7
New York, NY--Ticonderoga Ventures, Inc. announces that attorney Jeff Ifrah will speak at the Daily Fantasy Sports Expo ( www.fantasysportsexpo.com ) on August 6-7, 2015 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Jeff Ifrah, founder of Ifrah Law, has made a name for himself as one of the country’s most noted experts on gaming law, with over fifteen years of experience in the iGaming sphere, most notably as a leader in the efforts to create successful legislation for online gaming while representing the largest players in the space. At this year’s DFS Expo, he will focus on the timely question of whether regulation is necessary for the burgeoning fantasy sports industry.
As fantasy sports revenues increase, legislators are taking notice of the opportunity to regulate. The motivations for regulation vary. For instance, some policy makers want to create a special gaming tax that would apply specifically to fantasy wagering, while others believe that as the industry grows so will the need for consumer protection measures. Regulation is often considered beneficial to industry with the safeguards it provides. Jeff will discuss these and other motivations behind the calls for regulation and argue that to the contrary, such regulation will ultimately hurt the fantasy sports industry by shutting out new businesses and competitive startups looking to join the market. He will also discuss why and how the industry should continue to rely on self-regulation, instead of allowing lawmakers to step in with harmful legislation.
The fantasy sports industry has grown from an estimated USD $1.6 Billion in 2006 to USD $15 Billion in 2014. Experts consider this the tip of the iceberg with the advent of daily fantasy sports (known as “DFS”). With new players attracted to the market over the last 2 years, some fantasy sports leagues are experiencing double digit growth monthly.
The conference is for CEOs and Fantasy Sports operators and discuss the business of DFS.
