Conference program


On June 18, Gaming in Holland and Totally Gaming Academy trainers Arjan Korstjens and Lucien Wijsman will offer a one-day, Dutch-language casino marketing training course at a steeply discounted rate.

The course will be primarily aimed at land-based casino professionals looking to mount more effective marketing campaigns and to increase floor yields by specifically catering to as many different categories of casino customers as possible.

Day 1 – starting at 13.30

The first conference day, June 19, will focus on the latest regulatory and legal developments. As a special guest, GiH will welcome Guillermo Olagüe Sánchez, Deputy Head at the Spanish regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego.

Mr Olagüe Sánchez will look back at Spain’s successful regulation of a healthy and growing online market and will also discuss the concomitant advantages of expanded consumer protection, player channeling, and increased tax yields.

Day 2 starting at 10.00

The second conference day will feature a keynote opening by Holland Casino CEO Erwin van Lambaart, followed by a discussion of the Dutch lottery market and the impact of new market entrants on charities and good causes.

Other topics include the possible opening of the Dutch retail betting market, the key gambling brands in the country, and a CEO panel.

 Introducing the Responsible Gaming Awards Dinner

As the Dutch market is slowly but surely opening up, it is becoming increasingly appropriate to recognize outstanding performers within the Dutch gaming industry.

Gaming in Holland, in close cooperation with, and supported by a wide range of stakeholders, has therefore decided to introduce the Responsible Gaming Awards.

The very first Responsible Gaming Awards will be presented on June 19 at an exclusive awards dinner for industry representatives, policy makers, and problem gambling care professionals.

The awards dinner will be an integral part of the GiH Conference. However, it will also be possible to attend the dinner without participating in the conference. A large number of representatives of the gaming, betting, and lottery sectors have already confirmed their attendance.

The inaugural Dutch Responsible Gaming Awards will feature 10 distinct award categories:

Responsible Gaming Initiative of the Year

Best Use of Technology for Responsible Gaming Purposes

Governance, Oversight, and Social Care Organization of the Year

Operator of the Year

Gaming Destination of the Year

Female Role Model of the Year

Marketing Campaign of the Year

Digital Product of the Year

Gaming Industry Ambassador of the Year

Industry Innovation of the Year

The winners will be picked by three independent juries. All nominees must be fully licensed to operate in the Dutch market.

The Responsible Gaming Awards Dinner promises to be the highlight of the GiH Conference, as well as a long overdue opportunity for the entire Dutch gaming industry to come together to celebrate its achievements.
