Brazil Gaming Congress 2017 is back, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

BgC 2017 returns as operators prepare for to enter Brazilian marketLatin America is a very competitive market in gambling, with Brazil holding the biggest potential. And there has never been a greater need for information on the political and legislative process or best practices for regulation, taxation and control.

Promoted by Clarion Gaming, BgC 2017 will provide operators with knowledge and opportunity to meet the right people, and help executives make the right decisions for their businesses and prosper in the growing Latin American gaming market.

Ewa Bakun, head of content for Clarion Gaming, said the Brazil-dedicated event will also tackle the best practices that can be applied to the Latin American country, the routes to market and the timelines for investment.

“Certainly, the diversity and calibre of speakers drawn from both the regulatory and commercial spheres will prove invaluable as the industry gets to grips with the dynamics of a market which has the fifth biggest population in the world,” Bakun said.

The event’s long list of scheduled speakers include local expert Airton Hose Dias Coradassi Filho, Associate Attorney-at-Law at Wambier, Yamasaki, Bevervanco, Lima and Lobo Advogados, where he has been responsible for coordinating large legal teams for civil and corporate actions in Brazil specializing in special banking, consumer and environmental law. Also speaking at the event is Alberto Jose Angrisano Costa, CEO of Eurorio Hotel and Casino, a multinational whose local holding includes Eurobuilding Hotel and Suites Casino in Brazil.

BgC 2017 has committed itself to a “sharp political focus” at this year’s edition at Tivoli Mofarrejin São Paulo, with five Federal Deputies set to speak on the legislation progress, including Augusto Coutinho, Elmar Nascimento, Herculano Passos, Roberto de Lucena and Magda Mofatto.

“The key take-out delegates can look forward to is clarity on the revised regulatory timetable following the country’s recent political turmoil, in particular when it comes to the ministerial bills on sports betting (from the Ministry of Finance) and on casinos (from the Ministry of Tourism),” Bakun said. “There has never been a greater need for information on the political and legislative process or best practices for regulation, taxation and control.”
