Real life impact of marketing practices
The real life impact of marketing practices will be explored at our Responsible Marketing for Gambling Operators conference in November. Our packed agenda will feature some exclusive feedback from focus groups being held by the Gordon Moody Association.
The focus groups, being held in October, will look at the real life impact of gambling marketing and promotions across a range of potential audiences.
Rob will also be joined by Tony Parente who recently appeared on the BBC Panorama documentary, ‘Addicted to gambling’.
The Focus Groups – Real life impact of marketing practices.
Rob Mabbett, Gordon Moody Association will be presenting for the first time the feedback from the focus groups. These groups will include young people, gamblers, gamblers in treatment and gamblers in recovery. The groups are being held to look at reactions to gambling advertising and promotions.
Participants will be asked what marketing they saw and how it affected them. They’ll be asked how it made them feel and what, if anything, needs to change. Furthermore they’ll be asked about whether they noticed the responsible gambling message.
This promises to be a fascinating presentation and it will be interesting to see if reactions vary across the different groups. This session alone should provide you with essential takeaways to aid your ongoing responsible marketing strategy.

Introducing Tony Parente.
Tony Parente is someone with 20 years lived experience through his journey with a gambling addiction. He found recovery in September 2017 after facing the reality that his addiction was taking him to a place of self destruction. He found support and rehabilitation which gave him the tools on his road to recovery to stay abstinent. Through volunteering and sharing his story through ‘Addicted to gambling’ on BBC Panorama, he has found that helping others by using his own experience with gambling to be extremely rewarding. That work has also helped him join the Peer Aid Service team with Betknowmore & Gamcare that is due to launch in early 2020.
