The EGC Event

The event is set for the 16th of October at Ljubljana’s Grand Union Hotel will bring together industry experts for a platform optimising networking and learning opportunities for all. 

Timing Licensure

The incoming event is European Gaming Congress EGC. In anticipation, Serbia is reaching out to all gambling establishments to apply for licenses at the Ministry of Finance.

In return, the government jurisdiction has established its own version of favourable conditions for running gambling activities, supporting effective operation of established ranging from land-based casinos to slot machine halls to betting shops as well as online gambling sites. 

A key advantage Serbia is offering is a modest gambling tax of only 5%.

The Serbian focus at the inaugural edition of European Gaming Congress is a key topic that will indicate how smaller countries in Europe can participate in the greater cross border economy. Gaming stands as one of those key gateways.

Expert Speaker

To this end, Serbia gaming expert Zoran Puhač is set to share his latest insights on the market and his own personal experiences working with Serbian regulation.

Zoran currently serves as Secretary–General of European Organization for Gaming Law (EOGL). He has previously served as Mozzartbet director of Corporate Affairs as well as Association of Gaming Providers coordinator, after graduating Air Force Academy and undergoing post graduate studies at Faculty of political sciences with specialization in crisis communications.

Diverse Representation

Other speakers set to be on hand at EGC include officials and operators representatives across France, Spain, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Netherlands and Belgium.


The interweaving of large European economies with emerging nations operating on smaller scales is a key dynamic that will enable innovative small countries to get a strong foothold in the EU economy, and the EGC represents a great investment opportunity for attendees to discern which of these emerging economies look most strong for the near and mid-term.
