Media platform stays ahead of the curve as numerous events are postponed

European Gaming, Central Europe’s leading betting and gaming media platform, has unveiled plans to host the industry’s first virtual conference after announcing its MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit and BGS Awards are to be postponed.

Set to take place on the 7th May, the date of the original event, the industry’s first virtual conference will include panel discussions and presentations via live stream, along with the opportunity for registered delegates to network via online meetings.

Each of the event’s registered delegates and speakers will be assigned an online profile upon registering, with each available to contact (and be contacted) in advance of the event. Arranged meetings can take place either via voice or video call through the event’s platform during the conference day.

European Gaming’s innovative solution comes amidst ongoing uncertainty about the impact of the COVID-19 virus on the gambling industry, and what precautionary measures should be taken in relation to upcoming events.

Zoltan Tuendik, Founder and Head of Business and Events at European Gaming said: “The spread of the COVID-19 virus is yet to be fully realised and we as an industry are already feeling the economic impact.

“The best approach we can take at this time is to embrace and innovate. The virtual space is an area our team already has experience in, and with learning and networking essential during this challenging period, we saw this as the natural solution. 

“In the upcoming weeks we will also launch several other tools to help like-minded industry peers stay ahead of the curve and create more leads, so be sure to stay tuned.”

The virtual conference will take place online and those interested can register via the following link: https://hipther.agency/product/delegate-pass-mare-balticum-gaming-summit-2020-virtual-edition/

Lithuania Mulls Cracking Down on Gambling Ads

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Lithuanian MPs have registered amendments to the Gambling Law proposing to further tighten gambling advertising in the country as of 2025.

Around 50 MPs, mostly from the ruling majority, have signed the amendments proposing to prohibit the dissemination of information of the gambling companies sponsoring any public events, activities, natural or legal persons.

If adopted, the amendments would eliminate the advertising of betting, wagers, and casinos on television, in newspapers, magazines, or news websites and on street billboards. Neither the names nor the logos of gambling operators could appear on the jerseys of athletes and in arenas during the sporting events.

Companies would only be able to publish information on the types of gambling at the gambling venue or on the company’s website, the address of which is specified in the Gambling Regulation.

It is proposed to allow gambling companies to publish information on gambling only in publications aimed at professionals in the business. They could advertise their name and brand on their head office building or gambling venue.

Lithuanian MPs have started considering tightening the requirements for gambling advertising amid allegations that Šarūnas Stepukonis, a former BaltCap Infrastructure Fund partner, has embezzled and gambled away millions of euros of the fund’s money.

The initiator of the amendments, Mindaugas Lingė of the ruling conservative Homeland Union, has previously said that last year the total revenue of gambling operators amounted to 222 million euros, up from 103 million euros in 2020.

The amount spent on advertising in the gambling business doubled from 6.36 million euros in 2020 to 12.73 million euros in 2023. Gambling operators’ profits increased from 20 million euros in 2020 to more than 53 million euros in 2022.
