Key Speakers Confirmed for Sport & Gambling 2011

September 1, 2011

World Sports Law Report is proud to announce that Nick Tofiluk, Director of Regulation at the Gambling Commission; Andy Cunningham, Head of Integrity at Betfair, Simon Taylor, General Secretary of the Professional Players Federation (PPF) and Danny Townsend, President of EMEA & South Asia at Repucom, among others, will speak at Sport & Gambling 2011, which will take place on 29 September in Central London.

Recent betting and match-fixing scandals have lead to a re-evaluation of the commercial and financial links between sports and gambling, threatening the sustainability of this mutually beneficial relationship. While sports organisations need increasing amounts of revenue to tackle corruption and investment in grassroots sports, gambling operators see their own revenues eroding against a fast-evolving array of threats and restrictions.

Sporting organisations are eager to demand revenue from gambling operators to fund legitimate objectives, such as tackling corruption and investment in grassroots sport. Gambling operators, meanwhile, are being forced to defend their revenues and rights against a fast-evolving array of threats.

Sport & Gambling 2011 will provide both gambling operators and sports organisations with an in-depth and up-to-the-minute understanding of the fast-paced, complex legal and regulatory structure that underpins their relationship. 

Sports rights, betting rights, advertising and combating corruption are just some of the key issues that will be addressed by our team of expert speakers. 

This essential event will analyse new opportunities and challenges in an increasingly global and intricate legal landscape, and provide expert opinion and advice on the implications of recent developments, allowing you and your organisation to comply and excel in today’s fast-paced environment. 

We will bring together leading sports betting experts, market analysts and pioneers in betting integrity, making Sport & Gambling 2011 the must-attend event of the year. 

This is an essential event for all:

  • Betting Operators
  • National Governing Bodies
  • International Federations
  • Government Officials
  • Agents
  • Gambling Authorities
  • Sports Clubs
  • Disciplinary & Governance Professionals
  • Legal & Business Advisors
  • Market Analysts

This essential fixture in the conference calendar identifies the latest developments in the relationship between sports organisations and gambling operators.
