European Gaming Congress in Ljubljana, 16 October 2018

European Gaming Media and Events, a leading media and boutique event organizer company in the European Union is organising the inaugural edition of European Gaming Congress which will be held on October 16 at the Grand Union Hotel in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The event is expected to bring together industry experts from all over Europe and create a platform which will enable both networking and learning at the highest quality due to inside information from the top gaming experts in the bloc and beyond.

The congress will focus on online gambling and gaming and Montenegro’s casino market. Tatjana Scepanovic, Secretary General of Montenegro Bet since 2012, will share her insights and give her expert opinion about the gambling industry in Montenegro and its potential investment opportunities.

The field is an emerging market and a good source of ‘income’ for the small Adriatic nation which has made things easy for those who want to invest in this particular industry.

According to the event’s press release, “Online gaming has been legal in Montenegro since October, 2011, and the Games of Chance Administration, the main gaming authority, started issuing online gaming licences in January, 2012.

To attract more investors, the Government of Montenegro made the procedure simple with minimum capital requirements imposed. Operators who get an online gaming licence in Montenegro can offer all forms of entertainment including slots, sports betting, Poker and other card games, live casino as well as other web-based games of chance. The only form of entertainment that is excluded is lottery.”

The event organiser, Zoltán Tűndik, Founder, Co-Owner and Head of Business at European Gaming media and Events explains that “European Gaming Congress is specially designed to bring together industry experts, regulators, operator and service providers in order to discuss burning issues some of the markets are facing when working with compliance updates and licensing. The event also offers networking sessions which will help attending delegates to meet and greet some of well known faces of the gambling industry in Europe. The agenda will give the opportunity for attending delegates to dive into regulatory updates from Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Spain, France, Greece and many more jurisdictions. We look forward to seeing you in Ljubljana with a full day of quality content and networking.”

The specialised congress will refer both to the advantages of getting an online gaming licence in Montenegro (operators are allowed to cater to the international market) as well as to players’ interests. That is because some of these advantages can be perceived as disadvantages when it comes to players.

Until now, the speakers who will participate in the “Highlighting the Balkans and Southeast Europe” panel discussion are Tatjana Scepanovic and Zoran Puhač (European Organization for Gaming Law -EOGL), Chris Elliott, and many more…. / IBNA
