Regulators from some of Europe’s biggest markets will take centre stage at this year’s EUROMAT Gaming Summit which will take place at the Majestic Hotel in the heart of Barcelona. The latest programme for the Summit shows that Marta Espasa, the Director General for Gaming in Catalonia will open the programme along with the European Commission’s top official Harrie Temmink. Mr. Temmink will then join several other European regulators for a panel discussion including:
· Peter Naessens from the Belgian Gaming Commission
· Elisabetta Poso from the Administration of State Monopolies, Italy
· Carlos Hernández Rivera, Director General of Gaming, Spain
· Fernando Prats, Madrid Regional Government, Spain
Eduardo Antoja, President of EUROMAT and Chairman of the panel discussion with regulators said: “Regulation makes or breaks our industry so having so many top gaming officials from European markets together for one session is a real added value of this year’s summit. Operators and manufacturers from across the industry should be there if they want to get a valuable insight into the thinking of the people making decisions that have a direct impact on the industry”.
Other panel sessions at this year’s summit include:
· What does convergence mean for the land-based gaming industry in Europe?
· Player tracking: Does it help to improve responsibility?
· Are manufacturers or operators driving the gaming machine market in Europe?
Delegate numbers are set to soar with industry leaders and regulators sharing their thinking on how the European market is evolving.
