PAY 360 CONFERENCE 25TH NOVEMBER – ETC. VENUES LONDON

Pay360-Gambling-Compliance-150x150

Gx has teamed up with regulatory experts Gambling Compliance to bring you an event that’s unmissable, whether you’re a gambling operator, or if you provide services to the gambling industry in any way. And it’s not just Compliance people that should attend: some of the legislation is so fundamental to profitability and corporate risk that you will probably need to bring your CEO!

On the day we’ll hear from industry experts including Philippe Vlaemminck, head of ALTIUS EU Regulatory and Trade Practice and External Legal Advisor to The EU Lotteries, who will put the new UK Gambling Act in perspective, and discuss the wider and longer term implications of this new legislation. Jon Matonis, Executive Director, Bitcoin Foundation will lead the debate into whether virtual currencies will destabilise the gambling industry or present an opportunity, and we’ll hear keynote addresses from senior policy-makers from the European Commission, the UK Gambling Commission, and the European Banking Authority on 4 key new regulatory themes:

  • The 4th EU AML Directive
  • The 3rd EU E-money Directive
  • The proposed EU Virtual Currency regulation
  • The new UK Gambling (Licensing & Advertising) Act and Point of Consumption Tax

If you’re in or associated with the gambling industry, this is one event you literally can’t afford to miss.

AIME will be speaking on the panel at this event in the afternoon.
