MBGS arrives next week, a postpandemic first live show
Mare Balticum Gaming Summit will take place next August 6 in Estonia and will mark the return of live shows in the industry.
Estonia.- It’s that special time of the year again when MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit brings together industry shareholders and government officials from the Baltic and Scandinavian region. This year, the summit is taking place in Tallinn, Estonia on August 6, 2020.
Attendees can look forward to active discussions wrapped around topics such as classic sports betting, cross promotions, the Scandinavian gaming industry as a whole, and more. In 2020, the aim of the summit is to bring start-up operators to the stage and also continue the panel discussion style with at least one panelist being an operator from the market vs. gambling authority and controlling authority discussing issues and changes in the market.
At the discussion panel, there will be a gathering of notable experts from the industry, including Jan Urbanec, CEO of Endorphina, and Jakub Kolomicenko, Head of Legal also at Endorphina, amongst many others. During the discussion, Jan will be participating in the discussion about Cross Promotions, Betting, Game Variety and More, while Jakub will present his perspective and moderate the panel on the topic of the Scandinavian gambling industry and updates from Germany.
The Swedish gambling market has been messy for some time. Sweden used to have a monopoly gambling market, where there was only state-owned companies or state-controlled companies who were allowed to provide gambling for money. With the digitalisation, the monopoly has been put out of system and Swedish customers are able to gamble via operators who are based outside of Sweden. A new legislation was required to make sure that those who have applied for a license and comply with Swedish regulations will be able to be presented at the Swedish market.
Head of Legal of Endorphina Jakub Kolomicenko shares: “After a long break, I cannot wait to be back in the conference circle. The recent development has been hectic and in the name of COVID-19, the industry has adopted quite a few regulations to protect players. One of the most controversial regulations is in Sweden. And this is exactly what we will be focusing on with my panelist of well-recognised experts.”
The unfortunate cancelation of most sports events had an obvious effect on betting operators, although, the companies that diversified with their product offerings did manage to mitigate losses. It will be interesting to hear different perspectives on this issue and how other operators have been managing this situation.
CEO Endorphina Jan Urbanec shares: “It feels great that we are getting back on the road!
“Thanks to Mare Balticum’s event, we can strengthen our current business connections and make news ones. My participation in the panel focuses on the cross promotions of casino games, alongside a team of long-term industry professionals. This will be something that I will definitely deeply enjoy. Looking forward to sharing some inside industry knowledge and absorb some as well.”
As usual, the MARE BALTICUM 2020 summit will provide its attendees with the perfect networking opportunity for everyone in the gambling industry. Sales manager of Endorphina Valeriya Nasypova, who is responsible for the Scandinavian and Baltic markets will also be presented at the Summit.
