The International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR) have confirmed that their 2021 Conference will go ahead in person from September 12 to 17 2021 in Boston Massachusetts, USA.
In announcing the re-scheduled event IAGR President Mr Mabutho Zwane said: “As regulators, we recognise ongoing dialogue and collaboration across nations is vital to the continued success of our industry. This is particularly important at this time where the global pandemic has brought unprecedented change and challenges to each and every part of the globe.
The IAGR 2021 conference is focused on disruption and sparking regulatory innovation to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of gambling regulation globally. The event, originally postponed from 2020, will draw on both pre-pandemic and post-pandemic expertise and understanding to support the international gambling regulation sector aiming to extend its reach and impact, while provoking thinking and debate.
Mr Zwane noted, “While IAGR understands the challenges still facing so many of our members and their local communities, we as an organisation believe it is important we continue to drive the global gambling regulatory agenda, particularly as many within the gambling industry are facing change and disruption. Our implementation and management of IAGR 2021, through the organising committee, will focus on Covid Safe practices, following WHO Health Guidelines as well as providing opportunities for those individuals unable to travel due to the impacts of the pandemic with avenues for participation.
He added: “As leading voices within the global gaming industry IAGR looks forward to the opportunity to continues it long running history of hosting successful thought leadership events and bringing together the global gambling regulatory community and introducing new initiatives to be launched soon.”
