hy attend the RiG Conference?

Don’t miss the inaugural Responsibility in Gaming Conference, October 23 – 24, 2019, Brussels. There are many conferences where scholars and other experts share the latest insights on problem gambling, its prevalence, and the neurological effects seen in the brains of people with a gambling disorder.

But how do we translate these insights into concrete and specific measures for operators to implement in their day-to-day operations? And what should regulators know and do about it?

While understanding the deeper causes of problem gambling is certainly important, the Responsibility in Gaming Conference will focus on what stakeholders can and should do to create an effective and workable responsible gaming policy.

Responsible gambling expert and conference organizer Pieter Remmers: “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. Top executives and top researchers in the area of responsible gambling will share their views on how to translate evidence-based research into best practices.”
