Brazilian Gaming Congress started its third edition

The congress will reunite the industry in a three-day event hosted in Sao Paulo.

Brazil.- The Brazilian Gaming Congress (BgC) started yesterday at the Tivoli Mofarrej in Sao Paulo, Brazil with leading experts and major players in the gaming segment who gathered to discuss key issues for the sector.

The congress organised by Clarion Events will take place until November 22, and will provide participants with critical information about the commercial characteristics of each gaming segment, such as bingo, casino, online gaming and lotteries, and product specifications for the industry, in order to help industry players to prepare for a future regulated market.

Sergio Jardim, CEO of Clarion Events Brazil, said: “The focus of BgC is to describe and discuss the Brazilian market from the perspective of the regulation of the gaming industry. Discussions will address the positive impact that the definition of a legal framework will provide, such as attracting investment to all regions, generating revenue through taxes and increased employment opportunities in Brazil. Business prospects in this sector are very high.”

The CEO believes that there is a negative stereotype when it comes to the discussion of gaming, but they shall remember that once it gets legalised, it will represent an important source of revenue both for the government and the private sector. On today’s agenda the congress will address the topics Law and Regulation – An Update”, “The Economic Outlook for Brazil – why the country needs investment; The Pros and Cons of Investing in the Brazilian Gaming Market”, “Creating a Regulatory Agency – International Experiences” and “Regulation, Licensing and Taxes – Strategies for entering new markets based on licensing options.”

On November 22, BgC will feature discussions that will touch the legalisation and regulation of sports betting in the country, the operation of Bingo, and the introduction of slot machines and other forms of gambling in Brazil, among other topics.
