2020 – what a crazy year it has been so far! Back in December we left the old decade and welcomed the new full of excitement for what the next few months might hold. I posted pictures of my family, all smiling, squished around my brothers dining table for breakfast on New Year’s Day accompanied by #newdecade and #movingforward. I didn’t see my brother, sister in law and my four gorgeous nieces again until three weeks ago.
As the twenty-tens became the twenties we all became aware that there was a virus in China that sounded pretty horrific. However none of us expected it to impact our lives the way it has.

Clear your diaries for October 2020 as it’s the 3rd Annual KnowNow Responsible Marketing conference for Gambling Operators. This will be our first ever digital event. Considering recent government announcements we feel this is the best way to continue to deliver our content to you.
This conference has been very successful for the past 2 years and we’ve had excellent feedback from delegates. We’ve got a packed agenda on both days so here’s a look at some of our speakers.
With lockdown restrictions easing we hand over to KnowNow MD Paula to look at the Gambling Commission guidelines introduced throughout and our Compliance and Player Protection training to help navigate your business through them.
Here we are coming into the summer months and slowly starting to emerge from lockdown. Bookies in England are opening their doors, casinos and bingo halls are preparing to do the same. What an absolute rollercoaster ride the last few months have been on so many levels.
Online Gambling – Is it on the increase? We were warned that it would early in this current global crisis. So let’s hand over to our MD, Paula, to look at the statistics, discuss new industry regulations and introduce brand new Online Training from KnowNow.
I hope everyone is surviving quarantine as best they can. I for one have very much been feeling the impact of the ups and downs of the coronacoaster but we are all in the same boat. I keep reminding myself that there are so many that are so much worse off than I am. As a single Mum, I miss my friends and wider family and am tasked with juggling homeschooling with running virtual KnowNow and getting some amazing events produced for when we come through this, which I firmly believe we will.
How can your business best navigate out of this current lockdown? On Sunday 10th May the government is likely to be making a statement on plans to start to ease lockdown.
