Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our contacts in government, and stakeholders more widely.
A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
Each publication includes:
- All speeches from the day, with accompanying slides and speaker biographies
(subject to approval by speaker);
- Transcripts of question and comment sessions;
- Supplementary articles from speakers and delegates; and
- Event information such as the delegate list and final agenda
The future of gambling - technology, international markets and regulation
PUBLISHED May 2011
This publication is CPD certified
This seminar looked at online gambling regulation, and how developments in Europe and the US might affect the prospects for the industry in the UK. The event considered the possible impact of US moves to overturn online gambling prohibition, and the European Commission's efforts to liberalise the market, on the UK's touted position as the world leader in online gambling. Sessions looked at whether regulation is effectively keeping pace with the market, the commercial opportunities offered by emerging platforms such as mobile and connected television as well as the wider social implications continued growth may bring.
