Moscow Will Host The First Betting Trends Forum In MarchPublished January 31, 2016 by Vlad G
Participants will get the chance to talk about the most important segments in online gambling in Russia.
The growing sports betting industry and the changing legislative landscape in Russia can create new opportunities for operators and companies. With this in mind, the first ever Betting Trends Forum will take place on March 17, in Moscow. The event is organized by Smile-Expo and aims to become an essential part of the online betting industry in Russia.
Covering Online Bets and Key Topics
The subject of online bets will be at the core of the forum but will also make room for other important topics which have to be covered. One of the most important ones is the change in legislative regulation regarding betting in the country, which was initiated some time ago and is yet to be completed. For now, the segment has weak regulations despite the new federal law that was passed in the summer of 2015.
The conference will try to shed some light on this subject and better define the services allowed under the new laws while answering important questions. This new bill also covers the increase in advertising options for operators offering sports betting on the internet.
According to the Ministry of Sports in the Russian Federation, the new initiative will combine online sports bets with the rights to broadcast football games on TV.
An Event Not to Miss
Businessmen, operators and authorities are invited to attend the Betting Trends Forum this March. Some of the other topics which have been featured in advance include the current state of the sports betting market and its future possibilities, marketing tools needed to attract new players and fantasy sports. The last mentioned one is expected to get a lot of attention since it is a new segment with a lot of potential.
Participants at the forum will include operators from Russia and from other countries, service providers, Russian authorities, marketing agencies, legal companies and sports media representatives.
The event will present ways for those attending to get the latest information and news regarding the sports betting segment in Russia. While it is the first edition of the forum, being organized by Smile-Expo certainly gives it a lot of credibility and it should be a great success.
