Due to COVID-19 restrictions we have moved our flagship conference back to run in September 2021

Now in its fourth year, day one of this conference is designed to help gambling operators effectively manage issues around problem gambling and player protection, avoid regulatory action, understand what to do when mistakes happen, improve public opinion and increase customer loyalty. 

Day two focuses on managing compliance issues and ensuring that they are not subject to criminal activity through effective fraud prevention and anti-money-laundering strategies. 

This year we aim to run the event at the London venue. We will be following up to date COVID safety advice.

However, the Gambling Commission’s annual gambling behaviours study reported a drop in problem gambling rates from 0.6% in 2019 to 0.3% in 2020. Why do we think this was? And what should our takeaways be to keep those stats going in the right direction?
