"There have been many dramatic developments in terrestrial gaming, lotteries, and in iGaming over the past year, and it is extremely important for regulators to be continually educated on developments that may affect their jurisdictions," said GLI Europe’s Managing Director Martin Britton.

"That is the whole purpose behind our Roundtable series – to bring regulators together to listen, learn and share common experiences for the good of the entire industry," he added.

Last year's European Roundtable drew more than 40 regulators from 21 countries. Many jurisdictions attended the Roundtable for the first time in its seven-year history, including Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Montenegro, Poland and Romania.

"We strongly recommend that finance ministers, CIOs, CTOs, iGaming regulators, lottery regulators, gambling commissions and gaming committees security directors and slot operations directors attend the Roundtable. We are bringing in leading experts to discuss today’s most relevant topics, and we are confident these will be two days extremely well spent by all attendees," Britton said.
