EGR Operator Awards
Those in the gaming industry refer to the EGR Operator Awards as the Oscars of the igaming industry, and not without good reason. The annual awards are attended by over 800 professionals from the industry. The Awards are for B2C professionals from the leading online gaming companies from all over the world. The E-Gaming Review magazine awards the winners of these Awards every year. The Digital Awards are in a variety of categories every year. These Awards recognize notable performances for regular activities. But they also highlight exciting innovations throughout the year. The previous Award categories and also this year’s categories are detailed in subsequent segments. But just as a curtain-raiser, some of the categories are social responsibility and customer service as well. This shows how wide the range of award-worthy activities covered by EGR Operator Awards.
Important details of EGR Operator Awards 2019
For those who attended EGR Operator Awards 2018, the good news is that the venue for 2019 is the same. Those who attended last year were all praise for the impressive venue, which is why the organizers have decided to continue this year as well. The EGR Operator Awards 2019 will be held on 24th October 2019. The venue for the program is the imposing Grosvenor House in London. It is a property of the J W Marriott Group of Hotels and is situated at 86-90 Park Lane, London, W1K 7TN, United Kingdom. The property began as a hotel as far back as 1929.

The Great Room has played host to a number of well-known awards like The Asian Awards and the Pride of Britain Awards.
The preferred dress code for the event is black tie. The fun begins at 6.30 pm with reception drinks, which continue till 8 pm. Dinner is served from 8 pm and continues till 9.30 pm.
