Prague – 11 February 2019 –
It has been reported by many industry outlets, that the German market might advance further to set up a licensing system which can get EU approval, however, this has not been the case in the past year. Nevertheless, this/next year the chances of this actually occurring are significantly higher and most of the expert predict that the BREXIT will influence this in a positive way.
We also need to take into consideration that Germany and Austria are currently one of the most profitable markets in Europe, though large companies such as Novomatic and Gauselmann.
The organizers of Prague Gaming Summit are taking into consideration the facts that by 2020, the DACH gambling industry will cause lots of steer in the European gambling industry with regulations that will make history. 2018 has been a wake-up call for the region and it seems that some of the legislators and regulators are starting to understand why it’s important to have a clear regulation and stop banning an industry which is currently grey or black.
This is one of the reasons, the DACH regional compliance update panel discussion has been added to the agenda of the event.
The first panel discussion of a long series was initiated last year at European Gaming Congress and will continue through 2019.
During the 3rd edition of Prague Gaming Summit, delegates will get the chance to get the information about the DACH region from leading experts of the industry under the guidance and moderation of Dr. Simon Planzer (Partner at PLANZER LAW)
The confirmed speakers of the panel discussion Dr. Raffaela Zillner, LL.M (Secretary General, Austrian Association for Betting and Gambling), Dr. Alexandra Körner (Senior Legal Associate, MME Legal), Dr. Christian Rapani (Attorney at Law at Dr. Christian Rapani), and Dr. Matthias Spitz (Senior Partner, MELCHERS LAW)
