The Prague Gaming Summit 2018 will take place on March 29 at the Vienna House Andel’s Prague and show organizer European Gaming Media and Events has announced that the boutique-style event is to feature a panel discussion focusing on the future of the gaming market in the Czech Republic.

Via a press release (pdf), European Gaming Media and Events stated that this special one-hour examination, which is to kick off from 10:30am and is being limited to 125 seats, will offer insights from a range of gaming experts including Tal Zamstein from central European betting operator Fortuna Entertainment Group as well as Jakub Kolomicenko of local online casino games developer Endorphina Incorporated.

European Gaming Media and Events described Zamstein as ‘an extraordinary manager with excellent leading skills’ that is widely regarded ‘for his innovative work within the gaming industry’.

“Tal believes and drives his team to better achievements,” read a statement from European Gaming Media and Events. “He encourages his team by supporting them in all their endeavors.”

Regarding Kolomicenko, European Gaming Media and Events declared that the former corporate lawyer now specializes in intellectual property matters along with ‘all aspects of gaming law’ including regulation, compliance and licensing.

In advance of revealing that additional speakers are to be announced ‘soon’, the organizer declared that it has recorded a ‘significant’ rise in registrations for its Prague Gaming Summit 2018 in the wake of statements from Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis that his nation may need to spend up to $1.45 million in order to help combat problem gambling addictions. The former businessman assumed the country’s highest office in December and has since reportedly tasked Labour and Social Affairs Minister Jaroslava Nemcova to discover whether some of this sum could be drawn from unused cash bequeathed by the European Union.

“These statements leave the gambling industry-related debate open in terms of profitability and a clear vision to [establishing] an optimal market for operators and players,” read the statement from European Gaming Media and Events.
