Joe Ewens (GamblingCompliance) to moderate the Balkan Gaming Industry Briefing at CEEGC 2019 Budapest

2019-07-08
The Balkan Gaming Industry Briefing returns to Budapest.

 

There are quite a few changes in the Balkans when it comes to the gaming industry and one of the greatest opportunities which can be materialized by the regulated jurisdictions is the closing of the Albanian market.

It happened a couple of months ago when the Albanian authorities in Tirana banned all gambling activities except the ones in five-star hotels outside urban areas. This leads to some major relocations to Montenegro and Serbia by large gaming operators that have been active in the jurisdiction.

Albania is not the only country in the Western Balkans to take a stand against gambling. In neighboring Kosovo, the parliament also approved draft legislation introducing a complete ban on gambling for the next ten years.

While these tensions are not benefiting the industry in Albania, if we have a look at the other jurisdictions such as Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia, we will be surprised to see that there is yearly growth.

At the 4th edition of the yearly Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference which will take place on the 24th of September at the Ritz-Carlton Budapest, the organizers (European Gaming Media and Events) are bringing back a compliance-related panel discussion which focuses exclusively on the Balkans.

Such a complex panel discussion deserves professional industry insights when it comes to moderating and who would be better to take on this role than Joe Ewens, Managing Editor at GamblingCompliance.
