(Brazil).- Clarion Gaming, organizers of the Brazilian Gaming Congress (BgC), published the agenda of topics for 2019, that will take place next June 23-25 at the Tivoli Mofarrej Hotel in São Paulo. With fixed-odds sports betting, integrated resort casinos and lottery privatisation all up for discussion in Brazil, 2019 marks a true turning point in this vibrant emerging market.

BgC 2019 announced its agenda of topics

The focus of the upcoming edition will be on key issues that today cross the local market such as the regulation of sports betting, the progress of the Congress for the return of the casinos and the legalization of the gaming and the concession of LOTEX.

Organizers said that BgC 2019 will bring unparalleled insights into the executive government’s progress since legalising fixed-odds sports betting in 2018, as well as discussions examining the Ministry of Tourism’s efforts to introduce Integrated Resort Casinos to the nation.

As the event gathers stakeholders from across the spectrum of Brazilian gaming, operators will have highly focused networking opportunities designed to help find the right partnerships to push business forward.

At this year’s content agenda, expert speakers will put the industry’s most pertinent questions under the microscope; such as opportunities for sports sponsorships by gaming operators, licensing conditions for online sports betting, operators’ taxation, comments on show to run a business in Brazil and potential opportunities for land-based casino operators.

BgC offers unparalleled access to the ministers, federal deputies, senators and local governors working to regulate this rapidly growing jurisdiction.
