A representative of leading Italian gambling operator, SKS365’s Senior Strategic Advisor, Maurizio Bernardo, to speaker European Gaming Congress Milan 2019!

The Italian gambling industry has been on the agenda of many conferences and academic sessions in the past year and the team at European Gaming Media and Events, has decided to once again do their best by bringing together both sides of the industry for discussions in Italy’s most business-focused city.

When it comes to debating whenever the B2B sector is booming in the regulated Italian market, you can see that many of the large brands have already set foot in the jurisdiction and competing for their share of local and international partnerships.

If we take a close look on the operations side, we see that Italian gambling operators are constantly improving their offerings by partnering with premium providers while also keeping a close eye on being compliant with the rules set by the Italian gambling authority, Agenzia delle dogane e dei monopoli (ADM). Additionally, operators are also stressing on being in line with the directives set by the Autorità per le Garanzie nelle Comunicazioni (AGCOM), the advertising and communications regulator of Italy.

As you may know, the gambling advertising ban which is fully in force applies to gambling products and services advertised on the internet, radio, and television. It stops clubs from obtaining gambling sponsors. The only operator exempt from the ban is the national lottery.

During the second edition of European Gaming Congress (EGC), which will take place in Milan (Italy) on the 8th of November at Radisson Blu Hotel Milan, SKS365’s Senior Strategic Advisor, Maurizio Bernardo will share the share expert information about being compliant in the Italian market as an operator in a panel discussion which will focus on Italy and Malta.
