Italian eGaming Market 2011
The eGaming Italian Market Conference will take place on June 16, 2011 at the National Museum of the 21st Century Arts in Rome. The conference focuses on the growth of cash Poker and Casino Games in Italy. With € 61 billion received in 2010 (+12% compared to 2009), the gambling industry in Italy has registered an impressive growth, which will be even bigger in 2011, when analysts foresee a revenue of 80 billion euro.
Here are some of the confirmed speakers for the event:
Marco Brambill from PokerStrategy.com
Umberto Corridori from PayPal
Guido Berardis from the European Commission
Gionata La Torre from Evolution Gaming Italy
Barbara Beltrami from Pokerstars.it
Pontus Lindwall from Betsson
They will be discussing the legislative framework of the European online gaming market and new challenges for 2011, the “consistent and centralized” gaming platform to support legal cash games in Italy, the right strategies for a “gaming network” that can guarantee interesting market shares….for everybody, and much more.
It’s been three years since the Italian government adopted a more realistic and pragmatic approach to online gambling, introducing a strictly regulated domestic industry that has since burgeoned into one of the most lucrative and successful in Europe under the regulatory authority of the AAMS.
After some delays caused by litigation now settled, AAMS last month published the legal decree making the latest changes, which permit online poker satellites and tournaments with buy-ins maxed at 250 Euros. At least 90% of prize pools must be returned to winning players.
This conference aims to discuss the future of gambling in the Italian market now that it is doubling in size.
