March 12 date:
The boutique gaming event organizer used an official Monday press release to detail that its Prague Gaming Summit 2019 is set to take place from the Vienna House Andel’s Prague near the center of the Czech capital on March 12 and will see over 125 delegates gather in order to take part in a plethora of iGaming learning and networking opportunities.
European Gaming stated that the upcoming discussion on Germany, Switzerland and Austria will build on the success of a similar event it held during October’s one-day European Gaming Congress and is due to be moderated by Simon Planzer from Swiss legal firm, Planzer Law. The firm explained that attendees will moreover be able to hear from a panel of ‘leading experts’ that is set to include the Secretary General for the Austrian Betting and Gambling Association, Raffaela Zillner, as well as legal experts Alexandra Korner, Christian Rapani and Matthias Spitz.
The organizer declared that the necessity to hold such a seminar as part of its Czech event became obvious following the ongoing success of firms such as Gauselmann Group and Novomatic AG. It also proclaimed that many industry experts have recently predicted that the United Kingdom’s upcoming split from the European Union may have significantly increased the likelihood that Germany will soon ‘advance further to set up a licensing system.’
In a statement from European Gaming Media and Events…
“We are taking into consideration the fact that by 2020 the German, Austrian and Swiss gambling industries will cause lots of steer in the European gambling sector with regulations that will make history. Last year was a wake-up call for the region and it seems that some legislators and regulators are starting to understand why it’s important to have clear regulations and stop banning an industry that is currently grey or black.”
