Preliminary Agenda

 regulatory briefings for operators and software providers

Focus on Slovakia

The panel will focus on the latest developments and insights of the Slovakian gambling market where experts will share their ideas and information about licensing and potentials of the market.

Focus on Czech Republic

Given the fact that the Czech Republic is a newly regulated market, the government are not rushing into making decisions that will affect the taxation and the competitiveness of the country. Currently, the regulators know that they don’t have a perfect solution for the industry, but are waiting to adjust this accordingly. The panel is very important for the Czech industry and all international operators as the latest amendments will be explained.

Focus on Poland

In 2017, the new amendments in the Polish gambling law have entered into force. Operators have found themselves either blacklisted or dealing with heavy paperwork and more announced amendments. The panel will shed light on the state of the Polish gambling market and will also explain what are the key aspects that you need to consider when entering the market.

 hot topics and workshops

Innovation Talks

The Innovation Talks series will continue in Prague as well and we are looking forward to giving our delegates the most recent information about technology that is being adopted in the industry to increase revenues and attract new clients.

From Conversion to Retention – how do you make a successful gaming operation profit

As the main sporting event is coming up in 2018, most of the operators receive a lot of new depositors and based on the feedback we have, usually they can’t convert them to actual players afterwards. The panel style workshop will focus on key strategies you can implement in your business in order to retain your new customers.

Recent updates about Responsible Gambling programs

More and more countries are looking towards tightening the rules and implementing harsher Responsible Gambling programs in the industry that affect operators, software providers and affiliates. Many have stated that the year 2017 and 2018 are the years in which the Next Phase in Responsible Gambling is going to be implemented.

Round table discussions with the Czech regulators (limited to 30 delegates)

The 2017 meeting with the regulators was the top rated session of the inaugural event, thus we are honored to once again invite you to a formal discussion session with the local regulators in order to discuss the most important questions you may have that are in the field of the regulator.

Here's what they said about the 2017 event

Michele Spiteri, Business Manager, All-in TranslationsMichele Spiteri, Business Manager, All-in TranslationsAll-in Translations

“The Prague Gaming Summit was a refreshing change to the usual gaming conferences. The first day of talks included a great line up of industry professionals covering both the Czech market and wider European regulation. The second day provided a relaxed networking session and a lovely tour of Prague! Thank you to Zoltan and all at EEG for organising such a fab event.”

“Prague Gaming Summit was a focused and well-organized event, that shed light to the local market specifics, bringing together all the main stakeholders. We look forward to the next edition, as well as the other upcoming events, for more market insights and networking opportunities.”

“I found the panel discussion about regulatory issues facing affiliates to be very pertinent given the central role affiliates play these days in the overall business model of many operators. We touched upon a number of state regulations, such as the one in Romania, where affiliates have to pay a yearly license. We also discussed law of the land, which often are quite clear, as well as laws of the likes of Google, social media giants like Facebook and others. The latter laws are at times more ambiguous, making it harder for the affiliate to adopt best affiliate practices.

Love these more intimate conferences because they allow delegates to nurture a working relationship. Love the guys behind this event! I’ll be back next year.”

Thomas Willomitzer, CEO SnapscreenThomas Willomitzer, CEO SnapscreenSnapscren

“Snapscreen joining the Prague Gaming Summit 2017 was a huge success for us. The organizers were extremely helpful in connecting us to the right people and also provided Snapscreen and the other participants with a very professional platform to engage in meaningful and fruitful conversation. A special thanks for giving Snapscreen the occasion to present its solutions in front of the all the participants – including a live demo that was well received.”
