Organisers Swan Events have announced the launch of a ‘first-of-a-kind’ event, focused on policy development for both land-based gaming and amusements.
The European Gaming & Amusement Summit 2020 (EGAS) is scheduled for May 12 to 14 at the Dublin InterContinental.
The event has attracted the full support of EUROMAT and organisers have been delighted with the level of interest from operators of all forms of land-based gaming and amusements, along with responsible gambling practitioners and European regulators.
Organiser Karen Cooke explains: “The land-based gaming and amusements sectors face many common challenges and EGAS presents a ground-breaking opportunity for them to work together to shape policy and achieve positive outcomes for players, for regulators and for operators.
“The agenda is wide-reaching, with contributors representing every facet of amusements and gaming, including those developing the cutting-edge technologies now being adopted. There will also be a unique opportunity to learn about corporate social responsibility from professionals in the alcoholic beverages industry and the advertising world. This will be a business-defining event,” confirms Karen.
The Summit will open with a keynote address by Mr Thomas Graf, CEO of Greentube Group, Novomatic Interactive, during which he is expected to share a personal perspective on the future of amusements and gaming within Europe.
A packed two-day agenda will focus on highly topical issues, including contributions on Social Responsibility and Problem Gambling, the threats to Redemption within parts of Europe, and the rise of cashless payments and other technologies, including ID verification, biometrics and facial recognition.
Regulators from around Europe will attend to provide updates on their markets, and the Gambling Regulators European Forum will also outline its priorities.
EGAS promises an inclusive style, affording delegates many opportunities to question and exchange views during panel sessions and at relaxed networking events, including a Dinner kindly hosted by the Irish Amusement Trade Association
