Internet Gambling Conference in Paris?Published October 2, 2005 by OCR Editor
Later this month people from all corners of the online gaming industry will gather in Paris for a one day conference on the legal issues surrounding the business.
Recent pro gambling lobbies in Europe, with a specific drive in the UK, have started to work at changing the laws in Europe in regards to online gambling. Reforms were passed in the UK recently and there have been several attempts to push through updated legislation that would effectively allow closely monitored online casinos to operate within the UK. Although no such laws have been formally adopted as of yet, the push for change is seen as encouraging.
Experts in the field of gambling laws and operators alike will gather at this upcoming gambling conference to discuss international gaming laws as well as recent legislation in Europe. Representatives from the European Union, South Africa and the United States will all come out in order to learn more about economic growth within the industry and changing governmental and public attitudes towards the online gambling industry as a whole. The event takes place at Le Meridien Etoile Paris, France on October 20, 2005.
