Caribbean Gaming Show 2020 to be virtual, with more focus than ever in Brazil

The 10th edition of the Caribbean Gaming Show will take place from August 26-28, this year in a virtual way due to COVID-19. On the 27th, the “Gaming in Brazil” panel will debate about the lack of regulation for the sector and the expectation that casinos will be implemented by 2023 to reactivate the economy. Waldir Marques Jr., undersecretary of Secap / Ministry of Economy, will participate bringing news about the advances in regulation of sports betting. He’ll be part of a panel on regulation and reopening of the industry.

The panel on Brazil, which will take place on the 27th at 2:30 pm, will include Edgar Lenzi, CEO at BetConsult and president of Abragaming, Angelo Alberoni, Country Manager Brasil at Betmotion, and Eduardo Carlezzo, from Carlezzo Advogados. It will certainly be one of the most popular panels due to the strong interest that the largest potential market in Latin America arouses in suppliers, operators and regulators.

In addition to the specific panel of Brazil, the presence of Waldir Marques Jr., Undersecretary of Prizes and Draws of the Ministry of Economy of Brazil, is also noteworthy, who should explain the directions that the regulation of the sector has been following in the country. His participation will be on the panel Industry Reopening - Measures and Projections / Gaming Regulators (27th at 15:30). In a recent GMB webinar, he assured that the government has been working to ensure that sports betting regulations are ready by the end of the year.

CGS will have 30 virtual stands, simultaneous translation into English, Spanish and Portuguese and will also have a chat to bring all the participants of the event together in conversations and business rounds. 15 panels are programmed focusing on the gaming sector in all its verticals. More than 100 entrepreneurs are expected to discuss topics such as COVID-19, sports betting, casinos, fantasy sports, eSports and regulation.

The virtual exhibition starts on August 26th and the panels will take place on the 27th and 28th. Regulators, operators, manufacturers, suppliers and associations of gambling, casinos, online games, i-gaming, eSports and virtual games will participate in the event.
