Many C-Suite and other executives are familiar with the Big Four accounting firms. Some have seen PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) release reports over the years in the gambling sector. KPMG is one of the four largest professional services networks in the world with over $26 billion in annual revenues. The Netherlands-based company is perhaps the most involved in the global gaming business among the leaders. Some of their more publicly visible activities include gaming eSummits in the important hubs of Gibraltar and Malta.
On Monday we’ll offer a more in-depth preview of what participants can look forward to when they attend the 8th KPMG eSummit in Gibraltar on 26 April 2018 at the Sunborn.
Important regional and global issues will be covered in detail including legal and regulatory changes, the growing compliance issues that come with more mature jurisdictions and more robust frameworks. The impact of mergers, acquisitions and other corporate transactions occurring more frequently in the iGaming marketplace, as well Gibraltar-specific issues such as the Territory’s position and plans in regard to Brexit and much more.
Part of the program will focus on a discussion of which continental areas are in contention to offer the most promising future for gaming with enlightening revelations about the state of the industry and potentials for Africa, Asia, Europe & the Americas.
Another highlight of the all-day program will be a talk with Phill Brear, former Director of Operations with the British Gambling Commission prior to his 2011 appointment as Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. Brear handed the reigns over to Gibraltar’s new Head of Gambling Division, Andrew Lyman several months ago and will speak on his legacy and the challenges the regulatory body has faced over the last decade.
Two IMGL Masterclasses will be held this year by the International Masters of Gaming Law with an eye toward the American sports betting market and another on Brexit.
