Event Organizer:International Association of Gaming Regulators

The International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR) consists of representatives from gaming regulatory organizations throughout the world. The mission of IAGR is to advance the effectiveness and efficiency of gaming regulation by providing:

  • a forum in which gaming regulators from around the world can meet, exchange views and information, and discuss policy issues among themselves and with representatives of the international gaming industry;
  • a means of fostering cooperation between gaming regulators in the performance of their official duties; and
  • a central point of contact for inquiries from governments, gaming regulatory agencies and personnel, and representatives of the international gaming industry.

IAGR began informally in the 1980's as an adjunct to the annual meeting of the International Association of Gaming Attorneys (IAGA). For a number of years, regulators attended the IAGA annual conference and convened for luncheon discussions on topics of significance to them. Starting in 1993, IAGR became more formalized and commenced its own annual conference in conjunction with the annual conference of IAGA. The IAGR conference has grown from one-half day to its present format of one and one-half days.

IAGR holds its annual conference every autumn in conjunction with IAGA. In October 2000, the organization adopted for the first time written Rules of Procedures to govern its expanding and diverse membership.
