February's Sports Betting & Gaming India to Discuss National LegalisationPublished August 26, 2017 by Mike P
The Sports Betting & Gaming India conference will discuss the prospect of national legalisation over two days from 27-28 February 2018.
Details have just emerged ahead of the upcoming Event (SBGI) conference, which has been scheduled for 27-28 February 2018 in Goa. Various prospective attendees are likely to have been monitoring the potential for an online gambling industry to rise up in the restricted marketplace that is India, and this conference will aim to explore the challenges.
The fundamental aim of SBGI 2018 will be to evaluate the possibility of India taking steps to legalise gambling in the country. And the conference organiser, Eventus International, has been inspired to discuss the topic at this level, having encountered a willingness from the Indian government to discuss the potential ramifications of legal gambling markets.
Tim Shepard of gaming group Silver Heritage will lead the first day of discussions in an attempt to shed light on how companies and governments can capitalise on the widespread liberalisation of the global gambling industry. Meanwhile, the first day will also deal with the forthcoming goods and services tax (GST) that will be implemented as a standardised system all over India.
On day two, Christina Thakor of gaming consultancy firm 1710 Gaming will then lead the discussion. This time, Christina will explore the potential Indian growth opportunities for the fundamental gambling markets of online gambling, sports betting, land-based casinos, and lotteries. Christina will be supported by further analysis from Roland Landers of the All India Gaming Federation.
The conference will also touch upon a wide array of critical gambling topics throughout the two-day duration. These shall include industry taxation, data protection, security, payment transfers, player retention, and the prevention of match fixing.
SBGI 2018 has already attracted a talented pool of experts who intend to share their insights at the conference. They come from majorly experienced organisations such as William Hill, Française des Jeux, Alderney eGambling, Bluesea Gaming, and Nishith Desai Associates.
