Since 2006, sports fantasy has grown to become a multi-billion dollar industry. To date, fantasy football is the dominant game of choice among consumers, whereas fantasy basketball occupies the second position. The emergence of fantasy NFL, ESPN and CBS SportLines has caused the interest in sports fantasy to increase dramatically. Forbes is reporting that the average player spends a whopping $475 yearly on their league, as well as additional fees on player and team information. Organized by Ticonderoga Ventures, Inc., Fantasy Sports Expo is the business Exposition & Trade Conference for the executives in the fantasy sports industry. The conference took place in Miami Beach on August 6-7, 2015, and featured reputable speakers such as Ifrah to discuss various facets of the industry, including business operations, new technology, software, marketing, management, and statistics.
Attorney Jeff Ifrah has made himself stand out as a leader in gaming law well beyond his hometown of Washington, DC and is frequently invited as keynote speaker at conferences across the country. At this year’s DFS Expo, Ifrah focused on the timely question of whether regulation is needed for the burgeoning fantasy sports industry. In addition, the expert debated whether consumer protection measures should be improved as the industry grows, as well as why and how the industry should rely on self-regulation. “I am excited to be participating in this year’s Daily Fantasy Sports Expo,” says Ifrah. “I will be speaking about the efforts to both recognize and in some cases regulate fantasy sports. I believe that the best way is to self-regulate and to allow the industry to grow without the heavy burden of complying to state regulations.” Ifrah was a part of the “Legislation” panel which took place on the first day of the Daily Fantasy Sports Expo.
