Day 3 – Regulation Is Back in Focus

Back on Day 3, guests will have an opportunity to hear from executives from various regulatory bodies around the world, discussing diverse trends insofar as regulating the industry is concerned.

Illinois Gaming Control Board former administrator Mark Ostrowski will be attending alongside his colleague from Nevada Gaming Control Board Enforcement Chief Karl Bennison and Alderny Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) Jorn Starck.

Day 3 will also focus on discussing how to better ensure responsible gambling practices on the casino level.


Each day of the event will come along with an opportunity to meet and talk to people which is the very essence of G2E. The Asia editions focuses on the region and gravitates closer to important hubs in Asia. However, the G2E expos have a clearly international footprint, allowing businesses from both hemispheres to continue exchanging and sharing know-how.
