2nd Annual European Gambling Briefing
par Verbiest Thibault
Following the great success of the first European Gambling Briefing last year, which saw 160 attend the two packed days of debate and networking, Clarion ATE once again brings you EGB on the 31st May & 1st June in Brussels.
Developed in response to the critical regulatory, legal and business changes and challenges shaping the European industry right now (both at a national and EU level), this conference offers the opportunity to become fully informed about this sector – perfect if you are a lawyer advising international clients, a regulator assessing options for change or an operator looking for new pan-Euro opportunities.
Thibault Verbiest : Competition law –the next major battleground for private operator challenges?
Remote gambling operators may not have thought much about competition law up to now, but are we about to see an increase in the numbers of gaming-industry cases focusing on competition law, as applied under Article 81 of the EC Treaty? We examine the competition law issues that might apply to the gaming sector.
In addition, we look at what will happen when monopoly licenses expire around Europe: What will be the options for private operators? Both operators and lawyers need to take note.
