Key industry figures will explain how sometimes compliance can halt innovation during the 4th edition of the CEE Gaming Conference.


Often, innovation is delayed or halted by compliance, and clearly, there have been many signals that certain regulations have been created to benefit the political climate by the legislators or by lack of information.

The situation targets both operators and software providers, or in some cases even advertising companies.

During the 4th edition of CEEGC Budapest, we are putting together a must-attend panel which will feature some of the leading individuals of the moment, who will discuss how they’ve overcome the barriers when dealing with compliance issues and also draw the ideal climate for operating in the gambling industry.

The panel discussion is strategically tilted as “Compliance versus Innovation” and will be moderated by Jaka Repanšek (Media and Gaming Expert) and will be joined by Andrei Andronic (Legal and Compliance Specialist at Playson), Domenico Mazzola (Commercial Director at Altenar), Pieter Paepe (Partner at Astrea Belgium), Dr. Alan Littler (Gaming Lawyer at Kalff Katz & Franssen), and last but not least, Robert Dowling (Chief Commercial Officer at Singular).

The 4th edition of the yearly Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference will take place on the 24th of September at the Ritz-Carlton Budapest, and provides a unique opportunity of learning and networking with the gambling industry in the CEE and Balkans region via the CEEGC platform which is committed to bringing together industry shareholders and government officials from the region on a yearly base.
