Getting up to speed on the German situation
 
Online gambling industry execs will be diarising 12 April this year, when an opportunity to get up to speed on German developments will be afforded by the World Regulatory Briefing at the Frankfurt Airport Sheraton Hotel – a convenient venue for high flying operators and regulators.
 
Organisers Clarion Events claim that WrB has already attracted significant interest from both high-level speakers in the field and commercial sponsors. Testing agency GLI has agreed to sponsor the entire WrB series with Dictao and TÜV IT GmbH the panel sponsors.
 
"Thought leaders including Martin Stadelmaier (Secretary of State, Rhineland-Palatinate), Guido Schlütz (Senior Government Official, Ministry of Interior Schleswig-Holstein), Erwin Horak (Head of the German Lotto & Toto Block), Martin Reeckmann (Chairman of BupriS) and Dirk Quermann (CEO of Merkur Interactive GmbH) are amongst the distinguished panel of experts who will be providing insight into the dynamics of the German iGaming market," a Clarion spokesman said this week.
 
WrB Germany will deal with a range of issues including: an in-depth look at the German gaming industry perspectives, how to position commercial strategies within the German regulatory context, how to harness the commercial opportunities of the market, finishing with sessions on product compliance and customer protection. WrB Germany will give both global brands and regional organisations first-mover advantage in terms of exploiting business opportunities, establishing partnerships and meeting with regulators in order to understand fully the legal environment and its requirements.
