KPMG Gibraltar hosted an e-Gaming Summit at the Leisure Business Centre in Ocean Village at the end of March. The summit brought together the sector’s major players and service providers both locally and from overseas to discuss Gibraltar’s potential in the global marketplace.
The main aims of the summit, a first for Gibraltar, were to consider and debate how Gibraltar can continue to be at the forefront of developments in the online gaming industry worldwide.
The Chief Minister, Peter Caruana, opened the one day summit which was attended by more than 150 key decision-makers from the industry and included presentations by the regulator, industry practitioners, service providers and advisers.
Mike Harvey, Director for KPMG Gibraltar, told B2B at the start of the summit “that the e-Gaming sector is expanding globally and is already a major contributor to our local economy. It is crucially important that Gibraltar continues to make itself an attractive jurisdiction for the licensing and operation of online gaming companies. This involves input from the government, key industry players and service providers in finance, IT and a variety of other key sectors. This summit will bring those key players together to discuss the needs of the industry as it grows and develops.”
