Gaming in Holland Conference Set to Tackle Current Challenges in Dutch Gambling

Gaming in Holland Conference Set to Tackle Current Challenges in Dutch Gambling

The upcoming 12th annual Gaming in Holland Conference, scheduled for June 8 at the KIT Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, is positioned perfectly to address the pressing issues impacting the regulated gambling market in the Netherlands.

Untargeted Advertising Ban and Potential Privatization of Nederlandse Loterij Starting from July 1, the eagerly anticipated ban on untargeted advertising of online gambling services will come into effect. This comprehensive ban encompasses all forms of broadcast, print, and outdoor advertising and is expected to have a significant impact on the online gambling market in the country, including affiliates targeting the Netherlands. Detailed guidelines outlining the new advertising regulations were published less than two weeks ago.

Additionally, the Dutch government recently revealed plans to explore the potential privatization of Nederlandse Loterij, the country's largest state-owned gambling operator, along with the implementation of stricter deposit limits, as outlined in Parliamentary letters.

Insightful Speakers Esteemed speakers at the conference, including René Jansen, Chair of the Netherlands Gambling Authority, and Fedor Meerts, Department Head Integrity and Gambling at the Ministry of Justice and Security, are anticipated to provide valuable insights and further clarification on these matters.

Fostering Dialogue between Care Organizations and Regulated Industry This year's Gaming in Holland Conference aims to initiate a more comprehensive dialogue between the regulated gaming industry and care and prevention organizations, with the goal of establishing a more sustainable gambling market. Floor van Bakkum, Prevention Manager at Arkin – Jellinek, and Nathalie Smit, CEO of the Netherlands' national gambling helpline, Loket Kansspel, will share their perspectives on player protection with industry representatives.

Exploring ChatGPT and AI Renowned Dutch tech watcher Remy Gieling will deliver a presentation on the role of ChatGPT and AI in online gambling. The conference will also feature dedicated sessions on market and staffing data, operations, and affiliate marketing.

Willem van Oort, the founder of Gaming in Holland, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "I believe it is safe to say that the annual Gaming in Holland Conference has become a key event for all stakeholders in the Dutch gambling market. As always, we are thrilled to welcome influential decision-makers to our event, and we are particularly pleased that they are willing to share their insights on creating a sustainable and responsible gambling market, especially during this critical period."
