Top Conferences Not to be Missed in 2020

London town is no stranger to land-based or online gambling. This is not surprising when you consider it’s the capital of England (and the United Kingdom), a nation that boasts one of the most liberalised and regulated gambling industries on the planet.

For this reason alone you’ll always find many high profile land and online gambling-related events scheduled in London each year that attract many exhibitors, attendees, affiliates, delegates and sponsors from all over the world, and 2020 will be no different.

Below you’ll find a list of the key i.e. most important and relevant London-based land and online gambling events scheduled for 2020, along with their dates, venues, ticket prices and what you and ultimately your business can expect to get out of them.

The aim of this conference is to provide gambling operators with the necessary tools and knowledge to understand and successfully navigate the ever-changing regulatory landscape in order to attract new players and retain existing ones in a responsible and sustainable way.

In his opening remarks at last year’s conference, Gambling Commission Programme Director for Consumer Protection and Empowerment Ian Angus issued a warning to gambling operators that a storm was brewing. In this year’s instalment it should be interesting to discover if he was right.

This conference is aimed at compliance and player protection professionals, in-house lawyers, marketing professionals, consultants, senior management, PR specialists, and regulators that work within or alongside the most recognisable gambling operators.
