GLI celebrates its 12th Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable in Costa Rica

(Lakewood).- Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) is celebrating its 12th Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable in San Jose Costa Rica, on November 4 to 6. GLI is honored to welcome regulators from around the region where The Junta de Protección Social, Costa Rica´s National Lottery is this year’s host regulator. The event is produced through GLI’s highly respected educational division, GLI University®.

The Roundtable is complimentary and offers attendees three exciting and informative days of learning, networking, and thought-provoking discussions with content curated exclusively for gaming and lottery regulators and government lotteries and the registration is limited to government representatives only.

 

This year’s Roundtable agenda addresses many mission-critical topics that will prepare government officials for the challenges and opportunities they will face in the years to come, including:

  • Legislative Updates
  • The ABCs of Technical Standards
  • Auditing and Technical Compliance
  • New Gaming and Lottery Trends
  • Online Gaming and Sports Betting
  • Cybersecurity
  • Combating Illegal Gaming
  • Keeping Crime Outside the Gaming Industry
  • Responsible Gambling and AML
  • And More

 

“At GLI, we are convinced that collaboration among regulators is the key to develop gaming and lottery policy and legislation that allows for the sustainable and regulated growth of the industry,” said Karen Sierra-Hughes, Director of Latin America and Caribbean Government Relations and Business Development. “This is why we continue to create forums that have provided the opportunity for government agencies to learn from other regulators and lotteries´ experience and replicate the best practices adopted by them.”

 

“The Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable reaffirms our strong and continuing commitment to our critical mission. We also believe that innovation is key for the success of the gaming and lottery industry. The roundtable also provides a global perspective of the new trends with a risk-based approach to guarantee the integrity and transparency of the industry. We look forward to another exciting conference in San Jose,” she added.

 

Last year’s Roundtable attracted more than 80 representatives from 33 government entities and 19 countries from Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain. Registration and information are available now at gaminglabs.com/GLICostaRica19.

 

The biannual CIBELAE (Association of Iberoamerican State Lotteries) conference is also taking place in Costa Rica immediately after the roundtable. Event and registration information is available at this link: https://cibelae.net/costaricapuravida.
