Cyprus Gaming Show thanks Eventus International for a successful show

After a successful first event last year, Eventus International has hosted the second installment of the Cyprus Gaming Show.

Features of the show included Table Talk Cyprus on ‘Responsible Gaming’ by guest speaker Isobel John, and a variety of interesting panels and presentations. Amongst the presentations were topics such as, ‘Using Machine Learning and AI for customer intelligence and real-time personalisation marketing’ by Andrew Pearson (Intelligencia) and ‘The Game changers: Talent Inclusiveness and Diversity in the Gaming Industry’ by Margaret A Pitiris from Human Capital Solutions.

The second day featured a variety of presentations as well as four panel discussions on GDPR, AMLD, future opportunities and the tax landscape in Cyprus.

“The show was an exciting place, where there was a wealth of interesting speakers and information about Cyprus gaming and its future. The game show is in its infancy and will continue to grow year by year.” said speaker Isobel John.

The event was initiated with opening remarks from the chairperson David and welcoming remarks from Ioanna Fiakkou, Chairwoman of the National Betting Authority, Cyprus and Michalis P. Michael from Invest Cyprus. This was then followed by presentations. The day also featured two panels with key discussions on the current market of gaming in Cyprus & its future and the ICR. The rest of the evening saw delegates enjoying a cocktail reception sponsored by the NBA.

Yudi Soetjiptadi remarked, “The Cyprus Gaming Show (CGS) concluded successfully on the 29-30 May 2018 at GrandResort Limassol, Cyprus with a tremendous support from the National Betting Authority of the Republic of Cyprus. We are thankful to all the sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and participants of CGS 2018. With the success of this year’s event, Eventus International is delighted to announce next year CGS will be on 20 & 21 May 2019 at Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, with the theme “Capitalising Gaming and Sports Betting Opportunities” with the Masterclass “Getting into the gaming industry – your career starts here.”

David Schollenberger, Partner and Head of the Gaming Team at Healys LLP solicitors in London and Chairman of this year’s Cyprus Gaming Show, commented: “This year’s Cyprus Gaming Show was bigger and better than ever. With the coming groundbreaking of the Cyprus Integrated Casino Resort and the planned opening of the temporary casino in June, there is definitely excitement in the air. The expansion of sports betting and the National Betting Association’s proposed amendment to the Betting Law 2012 also to expand the products available to sports betting licensees, the Republic will become an even more attractive place to hold a betting licence. The Conference provides a unique forum for the gambling industry and its consultants and suppliers to network and exchange views.”
