By Simon Wright, Last updated Jul 1, 2023

Clear Concise Media, a content and events provider for the sports betting and gaming industry, have announced the latest edition of their progressive Reputation Matters series, “UK Gambling’s Future At Stake”, which will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday 2nd November at Ironmongers’ Hall in the City of London.

The event will be kicked off with a keynote speech from John O’Reilly, Chief Executive Officer at Rank Group plc, who will set the scene for the afternoon at what is a crucial juncture for the sector.

With the outcome of the British Government’s Review of the Gambling Act imminent, this timely series of speakers and panels will assess how the sector can survive and thrive in the shifting landscape that will inevitably follow the Review.

Discussion points will pivot around where the sector stands on the pressing issue of the maintenance of its relationship with its regulator, and how it can credibly evidence its sustainability credentials to investors.

Scott Longley from the organiser Clear Concise Media, said: “The Gambling Act Review is obviously top of mind right now, so Clear Concise Media is thrilled to be putting together an in-person event that will be addressing some of the most significant areas of debate surrounding the future of the UK gambling sector right now.”

“Even as we rebound from the pandemic, public opinion and regulatory challenges haven’t gone away. I’m particularly excited that John O’Reilly will be presenting the keynote; he brings with him such a wealth of experience and I think the attendees will be very interested in what he has to say.”

This Reputation Matters conference is supported once again by two leading sponsors in legal practice, Wiggin LLP, and financial services firm, Goodbody.

Steve Ketteley from Wiggin LLP stated: “After a prolonged period of regulatory uncertainty, we hope the Review will result in clear, evidence-based regulation that finds the right balance between consumer protection, individual freedoms and the economic sustainability of the industry.”

“It is such an interesting time to bring together an array of prominent industry stakeholders to discuss the issues arising from the Review, particularly considering the stall set out by the Commission in the recent past.”

With Piers Coombs of Goodbody added: “Goodbody is delighted to be sponsoring Reputation Matters again.”

“This is an important thought leadership event for the gambling industry in the UK and Clear Concise Media has arranged for an expert panel from a wide range of stakeholders to address key issues we all need to understand.”
