Slated to take place October 23 – 24 at the luxury hotel Steigenberger Wiltcher’s located on the exclusive shopping promenade Avenue Louise in the heart of Brussels, Belgium, the Responsibility in Gaming Conference (RiG) will focus on what can and should be done by stakeholders to create a responsible gaming policy that is both workable and effective.

The inaugural two-day event is customized to provide information that is specific and concrete to decision-makers in the lottery, online and land-based industry segments so that they may administer responsible gambling principles to their respective root business operations.

Pieter Remmers, conference organizer and responsible gambling expert, asks and explains…

…“Why attend? This conference not only aims to bring together the entire gaming and gambling industry – from lotteries to online casino operators – but is also designed to allow attendees of various backgrounds to exchange insights and learn from each other.
