Gaming industry and policy domain in European workshop
Starting today, September 16th, the Gaming Standards Association that sets the standards for all European related gaming events will host a two day workshop in the hopes of bringing together the policy domain and gaming industry leaders.
Building Bridges, as the project is titled, will take place in London at the Hilton Paddington Hotel. Some of the subjects up for discussion will relate to the role of the GSA in the online gaming industry as well as the standards put up by its Online Gaming Committee. Gaming regulators will also partake in the debates.
President of the GSA, Peter DeRaedt, stated that “This workshop is a critically important event as we discuss and debate the current situation and the future of iGaming in Europe from a technical standards perspective. The European market is considered the largest market for iGaming worldwide. Even discounting the effect of the gradual market opening in the US, Europe’s leadership remains uncertain due to the national segmentation of the EU market and multi-layer compliance burdens this brings on the gaming industry. GSA is in a unique position to create and stage events such as this, and we invite stakeholders in the industry to attend and participate in the debate that will shape the new online gaming standards.”
GSA members as well as non-members from Europe and the worldwide community are also invited to participate. The first day of the workshop will be more of a collection of opinions and data event with the following day reserved for a GSA presentation of how they undertake the task of developing new online gaming standards.
