Was it really only January that we first held Keeping Crime out of Gambling and Social Responsibility for Gambling Operators? These events were so successful that we had to run them again. Although we have a completely revised agenda it is great to announce that we’ll be welcoming back some speakers. So first up and moderating our morning panel discussion; AML update incorporating the 5th Directive will be David Clifton. He’ll be joined by Isabella Chase from ComplyAdvantage, Jon Duffy from Genting UK and Tim Tyler from the ICA.
