Gaming in Germany Conference postponed until fall 2020

Due to concerns over the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, the Gaming in Germany Conference, originally scheduled for March 24-25, has been 
postponed until fall 2020.

While now is not the best time for traveling and public gatherings, German online gambling reform continues to move ahead. On March 12, the prime ministers of the sixteen federal German states are expected to sign the new State Gambling Treaty, creating a fully regulated online gambling market from July 1, 2021.

As the topic of German gambling reform remains of major importance to the remote gaming industry, we will organize at least one 
webinar before the rescheduled Gaming in Germany Conference takes place on May 28.

The first webinar, with input from Dr Jörg Hoffman of Melchers Law and VIXIO GamblingCompliance, has already been scheduled for 
March 25 at 15:00 CET. Save the date!

In addition, we aim to publish a 
hardcopy country report containing an overview of the new regulations, as well as stakeholder reactions.

In short, we remain committed to keeping you informed of the latest events as they develop.

All conference tickets will be transferred to the new date automatically. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to 
contact us
