Tuesday June 28 , 2011 : Getting the skinny on matters legal in the land Downunder
 
The efforts of Australian politicians to impose tighter restrictions on land and internet gambling have been making the headlines recently, triggering a demand for more detailed information on what's happening and what is likely to develop in the future.
 
Conference organisers Beacon Events have come up with a program to address this requirement for more knowledge with its 2nd Annual Gaming, Racing and Wagering Australia, a gathering which is designed to provide a platform for discussing and previewing potentially explosive changes in gaming legalization.
 
Potentially huge changes with serious implications are underway and industry execs need to be fully aware of the opportunities, and risks, these pose for business, the organisers claim.
 
Beacon has put an impressive speaker list together for the conference, which will run from August 22 – 24 in Sydney. Among those who have agreed to share their knowledge are:
