Clarion's gambling summit set to shape the future of Brazil's newest industry

9 May 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Clarion Events' second Brazilian Gaming Congress takes place next week from May 11 to 12, 2016, and promises to be at the center of the debate around the new gambling bill and its implications and opportunities for both economy and global industry alike.

On course to be a sell-out event, the speaker line-up includes Federal Deputy Elmar Nascimento (President of the Special Commission for the Regulation of Gaming in Brasil from the House of Representatives), alongside representatives of Ministry of Sports, Brazilian Texas Hold’em Confederation (CBTH), Caesars Entertainment Corporation, PMU, International Center for Gaming Regulation, Française des Jeux, COAF, Brazilian Game Institute and Caixa Economica Federal.

Members will also attend from the Chamber of Deputies, which is already preparing a gambling bill of its own having formed a special committee last year to way up potential regulatory models.

Brazilian Gaming Congress 2016 will build on the success of the inaugural event three years ago and Clarion’s continued relationship with Brazilian stakeholders, including CAIXA, SEAE and state lotteries.

The event comes at a key time for the sector in Brazil, for a long time seen as one of the global gambling industry’s “sleeping giants.”

Event director Rory Credland comments, “We’re very excited by the response attracted by BgC, which is very much mirroring the state of the market as it once again attracts the attention as a major opportunity for casino and online operators, as well as gambling suppliers.

“The conference comes at perfect time given how regulatory issues will remain high on the political agenda.”

Brazilian Gaming Congress is part of the Gaming Portfolio of Clarion Events, organizers of world-leading events including ICE, GiGse, EIG and WrB. The event runs from May 11-12, 2016, at the Windsor Palace Hotel, Brasilia. More information including the full agenda and speaker list is available at the Brazilian Gaming Congress website.
