André Wilsenach (BMM Testlabs) is the guest of the Fireside Chat at EGC Milan 2019 moderated by Dr. Simon Planzer (PLANZER LAW)

Senior Vice-President and Government Relations Manager of BMM International will be the guest at EGC Milan 2019 Fireside Chat!

 

We are happy to announce that the final Fireside Chat of the year will have a special guest, which comes in the form of André Wilsenach, Senior Vice President and in charge of Government Relations at BMM Testlabs.

With this news, we are excited to announce that the series of fireside chats will also continue in 2020 as well at Prague, Tallinn, and Budapest.

In the early 1930s, Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced the world to the “fireside chat” when he directly addressed the nation via the radio 30 different times. To achieve his goal — assuaging the fears of the American people as they navigated the Great Depression and World War II — he invoked a casual tone.

Contrary to what their name suggests, these fireside chats did not feature Roosevelt warming his toes by a flickering fire as he spoke. Harry Butcher, a CBS reporter, coined this term because he believed “it perfectly evoked the comforting intent behind Roosevelt’s words.”

Today, fireside chats are used more and more often, from conferences and low-key meet-and-greets to television interviews.

They’re quite a bit different than they were over 80 years ago. Today, they’re conducted in-person (or via video) and typically include a moderator and at least one guest. But the intent is the same — to put everyone at ease and leave the audience with more information and knowledge than before.

The fireside chats were introduced to the European Gaming Media and Events series in 2018 and have continued to reach new heights and success among the delegates.

On the 8th of November at Radisson Blu Hotel Milan, delegates will have the opportunity to once again take part in a fireside chat during the second edition of European Gaming Congress (EGC).

You can register here or view the agenda here!

As mentioned above, the guest of the fireside chat in Milan is André Wilsenach, who holds the position of Senior Vice-President, Government Relations at BMM International, a private independent gaming testing laboratory.

He is a graduate of the University of Pretoria, South Africa and amongst others worked for the Africa Institute of South Africa, the Development Bank of Southern Africa, Ernst & Young as well as the South African Government prior to a longstanding career in gaming regulation.

André’s career in gaming goes back to 1995 when he was appointed to the South African Lotteries and Gambling Board which was set up to advise the South African government on the legalization of gambling in South Africa. Following the adoption of this report, he was appointed as Executive Officer of the Mpumalanga Gaming Board and a member of the National Gambling Board. In 2001 he was appointed as the first Executive Officer of Zonke Monitoring Systems, a private company established to render electronic monitoring services to the National Gambling Board of South Africa. In 2002 he was appointed Executive Director of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission which regulated online gambling. In 2016 he was appointed as Executive Director of the International Center for Gaming Regulation at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, a position he held until the end of 2018.

André is a former President of the International Association of Gaming Regulators and an active member of the International Masters of Gaming Law and the International Association of Gaming Advisors.

Make sure you take advantage of this unique opportunity of learning and networking with the gambling industry in Europe via the EGC platform every year.

Operators often find themselves burning money when it comes to running their marketing campaigns and when it comes to regulated markets, it is certainly a difficult task in creating the compliant advert.

Some of the operators have managed to perfect these techniques and among them is the international betting company Parimatch.

Parimatch will be represented by Ivan Liashenko, Chief Marketing Officer at Parimatch, in the “Marketing for Operators in Regulated Markets” panel discussion.

Responsible for marketing: marketing strategy, advertising, digital marketing, TV, OOH, new traffic sources, SEO, ASO, affiliate program, marketing analytics and tracking, market research, customer research, brand management, creative activations, sponsorship, and promotions.

Ivan started his career at Parimatch as an operator of the Payment Department and quickly became a supervisor, and then – the Deputy Head of the Payment Department. After 2 years in the Payment Department, Ivan shifted to the position of Product Manager in the Marketing Department. A year later, began to lead the development of client interfaces. It did not take long till he started to lead the product. Since August 2019, Ivan is the CMO at the Parimatch holding.

Under his guidance, the mobile applications of Parimatch were launched, the mobile website version was redone and a new desktop version for migration was developed. The share of new channels increased from 7% to 65%. A completely new responsive website was launched on the new platform. The Product Department was built from scratch and new approaches to product development were introduced. Regular customer research and usability testing were introduced.

Before Parimatch, Ivan worked in a bank and his area of expertise is focused on digital products and digital marketing.
