International Legislators’ Agenda Brasilia April 26th 2018

The potential in the Latin American gambling market is enormous by any standard. The time has come for legislators and those who decide the fate of legal gambling in the many jurisdictions represented by the Latin American to come to grips with the fact that betting can be profitable for some struggling economies.

Coming April 26th 2018 the International Legislators’ Agenda will take place in Brazil’s capital Brasilia in the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies following the Brazilian Gaming Congress in Sao Paolo on April 22 through 24th. The event is sponsored by the Association of Gaming Machine Manufacturers and is presented in partnership with the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) and the Brazilian Parliament Front in Defence of Tourism of the National Congress.

The International Legislators’ Agenda is a dedicated educational and networking initiative first organised along with the ICE London event in 2017. The aim is to provide an invite-only platform for policy-makers, legislators, elected officials and government organizations in order to share best practices for the legislation and regulation of the wagering industry.

The Chamber of Deputies in Brazil is at the centre of current legislative debate and study and with international experts being made available by International Legislators’ Agenda there will be answers to the many questions.

The invited speakers include Senator William P. Coley, II, State of Ohio Senate, Becky Harris, Chairwoman, Nevada Gaming Control Board and former NV Senator, Paulo Duarte Lopes, Director of Gaming Activity Planning and Control Director from the Ministry of Tourism of Portugal, Michael Pollock, Executive Director of NCLGS the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States and Carlos Carrion, Chairman Mexico Committee, AGEM.

Incoming NCLGS President, Senator William Coley, commented, ‘NCLGS was created more than two decades ago for the sole purpose of promoting best practices among US lawmakers. Working with Clarion at ICE and in Brasilia, that core goal is now global. The leadership of NCLGS is committed to fostering an international dialogue, and to sharing our experience and ideas.’
