‘Game On’ to review bringing gambling back to Ukraine14 August 2015;  Kyiv, Ukraine.  The two-day ‘Game On’ Conference, which will take place in Kyiv on 13-14 of October, will bring together leading international experts, captains of the industry, and top decision-makers from the Ukrainian government to look at international best practices as a way forward to bring gambling back to Ukraine. The Conference, designed to break the five-year hiatus in the industry, aims to develop a roadmap for its comeback in an open and transparent way.

A complete overhaul of the gaming industry in Ukraine will involve the development of the new robust and comprehensive legislation regulating not just casino operation, but lottery activities, sports betting, and online gambling. Such all-encompassing approach will put interests of the nation at the forefront, and will include relevant checks and balances to ensure that international standards are established and maintained. This legislative initiative will also aim to provide an impetus for the development of related industries, particularly encouraging international tourism in Ukraine, and a whole range of other support businesses.

A reformatted, international-standard gaming industry has the potential of creating 300,000 new jobs over the next five years and generating an additional UAH 2.3 billion in tax revenue annually that can be spent on essential social services, the potential which is recognised and welcomed by the government.

The Conference will be the first in the series of events, leading up to the development of the new world-class legislation benefitting consumers, operators and the government, followed by its subsequent submission to the Ukrainian Parliament, and an official re-launch of the gaming industry.

The Conference speaker and attendee list includes the veritable Who’s Who of the Ukrainian political elite, and the international gaming industry represented by multi-billion dollar companies. The two-day event will provide a unique networking platform for casino operators, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, and legislators, who will explore and debate the future of gaming in Ukraine.

The Conference is organised by ACE Publishing Ltd., who have taken on the role of spearheading the comeback of the gaming industry in Ukraine. Pre-registration of delegates is currently open on the official web site of the Conference click here.
