The International Association of Gaming Regulators announced a call for speakers to the organization’s annual conference, schedule for October 17-20 in Melbourne, Australia and title “A Kickstart for Collaboration.”
Held in conjunction with host partners the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation, the IAGR 2022 conference is focused on continuing the theme of disruption and sparking regulatory innovation to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of gambling regulation globally. The event will draw from all areas in the gaming sector, including updates on international gaming, distributed gaming, iGaming/iLottery, esports, and more.
“IAGR and the Board of Trustees are excited to be able to bring members together once again,” IAGR President Dr. Jason Lane said.
“As we are all living through the greatest disruptive event of our generation, the IAGR 2022 conference will look at the lessons learned through this time of disruption and the lens of innovation to see how members can help us point to a more front-foot regulatory future.”
Acting CEO of the Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC) Scott May said, “We’re honored IAGR has chosen Melbourne to host this year’s conference. The conference is a great opportunity to share our experiences and learn from our respective responses to the various regulatory challenges we each faced, and continue to face, during the global pandemic.
“The past two years have been an unprecedented time for gambling regulators from all jurisdictions. We’ve had to think on our feet and amend the way we work, often at very short notice, in a period of great change.
“The conference is also an excellent forum to share regulatory best practices, identify the challenges of the future, discuss the latest research and industry trends and build on our combined efforts to ensure the effective and efficient regulation of gambling around the world. My VGCCC colleagues and I are looking forward to welcoming our international regulatory colleagues and government officials to our great city in October 2022.”
With the call for speakers closing on March 6, speakers are being asked to consider a series of questions, including: How have the last two years changed your way of thinking? Where has it strengthened your resolve on what we knew before? How has it encouraged us to throw off old thinking, processes or policies and to best reflect the cultural, technological and consumer change we have witnessed?
