Don’t miss the inaugural Responsibility in Gaming Conference, October 23 – 24, 2019, Brussels

Responsible gaming and gambling done right?

Why attend the RiG Conference?

There are many conferences where scholars and other experts share the latest insights on problem gambling, its prevalence, and the neurological effects seen in the brains of people with a gambling disorder.

But how do we translate these insights into concrete and specific measures for operators to implement in their day-to-day operations? And what should regulators know and do about it? 

While understanding the deeper causes of problem gambling is certainly important, the Responsibility in Gaming Conference will focus on what stakeholders can and should do to create an effective and workable responsible gaming policy.
