The WGB will be taking place in the Hilton Malta, a beautiful 5 star hotel in the St Julians area. Starting off the conference a briefing called, "In Search of Political Will: What Prospects for a Pan-European Policy in Light of Increased Legal and Technological Advances? This segment most importantly addresses challenges posed by divergent approaches of member states with possible solutions. Should governments do more to harmonise Internal Markets for gambling services is another problem discussed. On the panel for this brief are Hans-Jörn Arp, Member of Parliament for the Christian Democratic Party (CDU), German State of Schleswig-Holstein, Juan Carlos Alfonso Rubio, Coordination Director, Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, Spain, and Prof. Dr. Kurt Schelter, Minister Emeritus and Attorney at Law Rolf Francis Sims, Legal Adviser, Ministry of Culture, Norway.

Along with many very important topics on the two day agenda is a subject that has everyone in the industry thinking about. Called the New Changing Regulatory Landscape: Examining Legislative and Regulatory Movements in the EU and Member States the panel of experts will take their positions on whether for example operators can expect the stance of the European Commission, Parliament and Council to change with a new Presidency and Head of Internal Market and Services department and how the operator will be affected by the UK government’s change of heart on the subject of mutual recognition of licences. Day two is scheduled to get into the international beat with a round table discussion featuring many of Europe's top online gambling executives, moving to the Latin American sessions which is poised to become the world’s third-largest gaming market. New laws coming in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina affecting gambling in those great markets will be brought to the table for discussion and insight.
