Shifting International Regulatory Scene Focus of Fourth Annual Symposium on Internet Gambling Law & Management

31 July 2000

LARCHMONT, New York--(Press Release)--July 28, 2000--The rapidly evolving regulatory and legislative landscape of online gaming internationally will be highlighted at the Fourth Annual International Symposium on Internet Gambling Law and Management, to be held Nov. 26-28 at the Royal Antiguan Beach & Tennis Resort in Antigua.

With prohibitive legislation continuing to threaten in the U.S., increasing uncertainty in Australia, and new jurisdictions--oftentimes offering more welcoming environments for online gaming firms--continuing to enter the picture, the global picture for interactive gaming companies is becoming more and more complex.

Offshore vs. Onshore Gaming: The Battle Heats Up, organized by BioConferences International, Inc. in conjunction with Gaming Law Review, Internet Gaming International, and the International Internet Gaming Association, will explore how intensifying competition in venues around the globe is posing new challenges for casino managers and operators, e-commerce promoters and entrepreneurs, software and website developers, consultants, attorneys and regulators in the fast-moving world of online gaming.

The conference is again expected to draw more than 500 leaders from more than 35 countries around the world.

The conference will be chaired by Joseph M. Kelly, Professor of Business Law, SUNY College at Buffalo and Anthony R. Coles, of the London law firm, Jeffrey Green Russell.

The program will present pragmatic information on Internet casinos, sportsbooks, lotteries, parimutuel wagering, International legal and regulatory frameworks, and financial and marketing issues.

The meeting will include an expanded exhibit area highlighting leaders of the industry showcasing their products and services, as well as a special luncheon on November 27th featuring the presentation of the Third Annual Internet Gaming International Innovator Awards, given each year to those organizations who have done the most to expand the boundaries, and enhance the credibility, of the online gaming industry.
