The European Gambling Policy Conference 2011 will be on June 28, 2011 at the Sofitel Europe in Brussels, Belgium.

Against the backdrop of the recent publication of the much-anticipated Green Paper on Online Gambling, this one-day high-level conference will gather key policy makers, national regulators and stakeholders for a full and frank discussion on the best way forward to achieve a market for online gambling services that is appropriately regulated.

The conference will also explore the ever-topical challenges facing the online and offline gambling industries including fraud and criminal activity, issues surrounding integrity, consumer protection, and problems and solutions surrounding the positive and negative social impacts of gambling.

With this in mind, this event will include panel sessions focusing on the following issues:

  • The Green Paper on online gambling: Is Europe on the right track?
  • Gambling, Good Causes and Sports Integrity – Are the current rules appropriate for the 21st Century?
  • Has the right balance been reached between consumer choice and protection?
