Brazil – Federal Deputies to deliver clarity at BgCBy Phil - 22 June 2017
The forthcoming Brazil Gaming Congress (June 26 to 27, Tivoli Mofarrej, São Paulo, Brazil) will have a sharp political focus with no fewer than five Federal Deputies providing their insight on the progress of one of the gaming industry’s most eagerly awaited programmes of deregulation.
The quintet of Federal Deputies, comprising Augusto Coutinho, Elmar Nascimento, Herculano Passos, Roberto de Lucena and Magda Mofatto, are amongst a total of 50 thought leaders who will be speaking at
Ewa Bakun, Clarion Gaming’s Head of Content, said: “BgC is a specialist Brazil dedicated event at which we will learn not just about the latest political and regulatory information, but also on what best practice can be applied to Brazil, 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. 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). There has never been a greater need for information on the political and legislative process or best practices for regulation, taxation and control. BgC 2017 will provide stakeholders with the necessary insight and opportunity to meet the right people and maximise the commercial opportunity in a market with a population of 211 million.”
