IGE set to bring industry together with policymakers 

Ahead of its inaugural edition, the Italian Gaming Expo (IGE) is already seeing an influx of interested parties looking to participate in the conference, some of which consist of Italian regulator Agenzia Dogane e Monopoli (ADM), together with representatives from government and industry shareholders. 

With over 35 panels scheduled for the event taking place in Rome on 18 and 19 April, guests can now expect to hear from high-level Italian institutions like Coni, Agcom, the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Forests, State Police, and the Italian Finance Police

Complementing the attendance of domestic authorities, present at IGE will also be Europol, Interpol, as well as foreign regulators like the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).

IGE will be the first B2B event of its kind in Italy where government officials share the same stage with private companies from the sector to discuss common goals and strategies moving forward – a significant step for the development of the Italian gambling market. 

Perhaps foreshadowing the event, in January the Italian government approved the long-awaited Reorganisation Decree, which from 2024 onwards aims to address and fix the biggest challenges that the industry in Italy has faced thus far, such as player protection and illegal gambling. 

Simona Clarizio, IGE’s event manager, said: “This is why IGE talks about a sustainable future: because at the heart of every development there is consumer protection and the role that technology is able to play in this sense today. All topics widely addressed in these two days.”

IGE guests will also be able to attend the subsequent gaming awards ceremony, which will pick the best-performing companies in the Italian market out of 86 applications across 20 categories. 

More information can be found on the event’s website here.
