Brazilian Gaming Congress tipped to be a success

Brazilian Gaming Congress to attract high-profile speakers.

The 2018 edition of the Brazilian Gaming Congress (BgC) is scheduled to take place from April 22-24 at the Tivoli Mofarrej hotel in Sao Paulo.

According to available information, the event will focus on strengthening its roots this year, which means we’ll see Brazil’s most prominent operators, investors, and legislators in one place, discussing a regulation model that could make the most out of the current gaming market in South America’s largest country.

Focusing On The Brazilian Market

“Strengthening Roots” is this year’s theme, appropriately chosen since the main goal will be to persuade Brazilian legislators that gaming has a lot of potential and that it can be a significant economic factor.

Key stakeholders will need to put their differences aside in order to try to create an optimized regulation model fit for the local market.

More than 400 important industry names have confirmed their presence at BgC, where they’ll have the chance to discuss the changes that this year has brought to the Brazilian market. The participant will summarize all that has happened since the last year’s event and give their assessment on what the future holds for the country’s gambling industry.

Important Names Will Be Present

Topics will include lottery, sports betting, land-based casino and legislation. The participants will be able to debate over the future of the gambling bill n Brazil, and further, analyze the expected timeline for gambling legalization.

The list of speakers for this year’s BgC include: eBrainz Chief Executive Officer Beto Vides, Sortis and Golden Lion Casino Chief Operating Officer Francisco Javier Vidal Caamano, Secretary for Economic Monitoring (SEAE) at the Brazil Ministry of Finance Mansueto Facundo Almeida Junior, EMBRATUR (the Brazilian Tourist Board) President Vinicius Lummertz, and Belgian Gaming Commission Director Peter Naessens.

Among the wide array of sponsor and exhibitors, you’ll find such names as BetRadar, JCM Global, and Microgaming, while many others will also be there.

BgC aims to reaffirm the commitment of key stakeholders to the long-awaited gambling legislation.

Many hope this year’s event will result in an effective regulation model, especially since all those who take part in BgC will have the chance of contributing to that cause.
