Brazil’s Delays Being Met with Equal Commitment to Success at BgC 2018

BgC 2018 brings senior level decision-makers to high level sponsors to optimize Brazilian regulation proposals.

Brazilian Gaming Congress BgC is strengthening roots with the 2018 edition.

Coming Back Strong

Returning to the Sao Paulo’s Tivoli Mofarrej April 22-24m BgC is building on its traditional role of bringing together the most prominent operators, investors and legislators exploring and developing a regulation model that best harnesses the potential of the Brazilian gaming market. 

Strengthening Roots

The task of making Brazilian legislators believe in gaming is the central focus of the 2018 theme Strengthening Roots. The event brings key stakeholders together to foster relationships necessary to build an optimized regulation model truly harnessing the benefits of the Brazilian market.

Prominent Industry Players

Over 400 industry players are already confirmed to be on hand, and preparing to identify and adapt to the changes that 2018 has brought to the gaming landscape in the Brazilian region.

Summary of Year’s Developments   

On display will be a vital summary outlining key developments in regards to legalization of gambling in Brazil since BgC 2017, and what should b expected for 2018. 

Key Questions Answered

Topical questions to be discussed at the event include what has changed in lottery, sports betting, land-based casino and legislation, which 2 bills are believed most likely to pass, when a vote can realistically be expected on a gambling bill in Brazil, and the expected timeline for legalisation and implementation of gambling in Brazil as well. 

Regional Luminaries Speaking

Speakers confirmed for BgC 2018 include eBrainz CEO Beto Vides, Sortis and Golden Lion Casino COO Francisco Javier Vidal Caamano; Secretary for Economic Monitoring (SEAE) at the Brazil Ministry of Finance Mansueto Facundo Almeida Junior, EMBRATUR President Vinicius Lummertz, and Belgian Gaming Commission Director Peter Naessens.

Senior Level Involvement

A significant contingent of senior-level decision makers will join sponsors and exhibitors include BetRadar, JCM Global, and Microgaming to name a few. 


With legislative delays still dominating the Brazilian landscape, a commitment to increased dedication by key stakeholders in the region is required. By refocusing on its roots in 2018, BgC is reaffirming that commitment.

Ideal Outcome

Hopefully, an effective regulation model that makes legislators see the light of social benefit from gaming regulation can comes out of BgC 2018, with all attendees having the opportunity to contribute to that cause.
