THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This conference will examine the future of UK gambling at a pivotal time for the industry - focusing on market dynamics, innovation and latest thinking on responsibility in the sector.
With the Government recently announcing increased measures to protect consumers following a public consultation - including reducing maximum stakes on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) and an increase in Remote Gaming Duty rate - delegates will assess the potential commercial impact, and consider what further action might be needed to support sector growth and promote a socially responsible industry.
In light of the recent US Supreme Court Ruling on sports betting which opens the way for its legalisation across states in America, and amid heightened merger and acquisition activity, delegates will also discuss new market opportunities and the way ahead for the competitive landscape, as it adapts to regulatory developments in both the UK and US, and seeks to drive down costs.
Further sessions will bring out latest thinking on innovation and modernisation as the UK sector seeks to retain and exploit its leading international position in both technology and regulation - including personalised product development, the use of analytics and a focus on online platforms - as well as consider how the sector might better co-ordinate in its engagement with policymakers and more widely.
