EGBA deepens spotlight on European safer gambling

Safer gambling in Europe will take center stage at the next annual European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) meeting.

The conference, scheduled for 18-24 November, aims to nurture an environment for important discussions between shareholders about European player protection.

This year marks the fourth time operators, regulators, support organizations, and industry experts will gather to discuss safer gambling awareness strategies.

Stakeholders will also use the EBGA meeting to share best practices and tips, signpost key services, and present the latest developments in the field.

Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA, said: “We’re excited to announce the dates for this year’s European Safer Gambling Week and look forward to another impactful edition. This initiative is a crucial part of EGBA’s commitment to raising awareness about safer gambling and fostering a strong culture of player protection in Europe.

“This year, we aim to reach even more Europeans with safer gambling tips and messages, bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders for a week full of meaningful discussions about the future of player protection.

“Safer gambling is a shared responsibility, and we encourage operators and other stakeholders to join us in supporting this important initiative. Together, we can raise the bar.”

A recent proprietary study by EGBA shows that the online gambling market in Europe can continue to head towards a sustainable future if member states maintain a multi-licensing model.
