Good to be back … The 4th Annual KnowNow Conference.
We’re counting down the days until our 4th Annual Conference at KnowNow HQ. So time to hand over to our MD Paula Murphy…
Here in the UK at least, we are fortunate that our world is cautiously opening up and getting back to business. I loved seeing LinkedIn posts from our land based colleagues as venues are opening their doors once again.
At KnowNow we’re prepared and good to go with an agenda I’ve been toiling away on for our fourth annual conference. This will now take place at Etc venues Chancery Lane on the 7th and 8th September. It will be our first opportunity to bring the compliance and player protection community back together in a real world environment since we ran our last conference way back in January 2020.
Over the period of lockdowns I was really touched by the messages I received in support of our events and the crucial content we provide. KnowNow is a small business. It’s literally just Matt and I but we do this because we care and we have seen how we can actually make a positive impact. Great, practical content always has been and always will be at the heart of what we do.
So what of compliance and player protection in our industry?
Well the last 15 months have been as busy as ever. This is never an area where things stand still, no matter what is happening in the world around us. There is much to discuss from the Gambling Act Review to affordability, regulatory changes across multiple jurisdictions, to new innovations in player protection, FATF recommendations on taking a Risk based approach, the threat of pushing players to a black market, impacts of problem gambling on affected others and how the criminals have adapted to exploit our businesses.
Star studded line up at our 4th Annual Conference.
We have an absolutely star studded line up of experts who will be discussing all of these issues and much more over the two days of the event. We are looking to drive the conversations forward and provide real world takeaways that will help you navigate the ever changing landscape.
Bringing stakeholders from all sides of the equation together in an environment where real, intelligent, honest conversations can take place is what we do well. It has never been more important to join that conversation and take part in discussions that will help shape the safer gambling agenda. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the programme yet, please do so now. I’m sure that you will be as excited about the two days as Matt and I are.
Safety at the venue is a paramount concern and we are working very closely with the team at Etc Venues to make sure we are following best practice. This does however mean that space will be limited for this one. We hope to welcome as many familiar and new faces as possible on the day. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you there.
