Trending Toward a Rational Policy on Internet Gambling

The inaugural Digital Gaming and Lottery Policy Summit will take place Dec. 5-6, 2011 at the Washington, DC Hilton Alexandria Mark Center.

Organized by a team with 12 years of experience as a cohesive unit planning gambling conferences, the DGLP Summit is designed to bring regulators, policymakers, gambling operators, lotteries and technology providers under one roof to address policy changes in the United States that could result in the regulation of new forms of electronic, interactive gambling. 

The collaborative, inclusive event will provide a unique forum through which attendees will achieve critical strategic and educational goals, through a set of objectives that includes: 

  • Build bridges between regulators, policy makers and industry leaders.
  • Provide exposure to regulatory roadmaps created in Europe, Australia and beyond.
  • Enable informed decisions through a clear understanding of key issues such as taxation, responsible gambling, technology innovations, enforcement and more.
  • Provide an understanding of--and realistic expectations for--regulatory safeguards for Internet gambling.
  • Provide a historical perspective and continuation of a longstanding debate over this fascinating intersection of technology and policy. 

An Expansive, Two-Day Program

The DGLP Summit will include two full days of informative, concise seminars designed to crystallize the issues and challenges surrounding the US struggle to address the global and domestic proliferation of new forms of gambling across digital media.
