The Brazilian Gaming Congress outlines the focus of this year’s event with in depth sessions covering the commercial opportunities in the region.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he focus of the forthcoming Brazilian Gaming Congress (BgC) is to discuss the Brazilian market from the perspective of gaming regulation. Discussions will address the positive impact that the definition of a legal framework will provide, such as attracting investment to all regions, generating revenue through taxes and increased employment opportunities in Brazil.
According to Sergio Jardim, CEO of Clarion Events Brazil, business prospects in this sector are very high. “There is prejudice and negative stereotype raised when gaming is discussed,” argued Jardim. “But we must remember that when legalized, the gaming industry represents a source of revenue both for the private sector and the government. Moreover, this industry invests heavily in monitoring technologies to prevent money laundering and other illegal activities associated with various gaming segments.”
The opening of the third edition of the Brazilian Gaming Congress (BgC) will take place on the night of November 20, with a cocktail reception. November 21 and 22 are the main conference days, when the discussions will deal with topics such as “legislation and regulation”, “business opportunities”, “case studies” and ” impacts of the regulation of gaming in Brazil.”
