This is a unique opportunity to interact with and reach a diverse group of public health, prevention, treatment, advocacy, recovery, research, regulatory, and industry professionals.
We’ve seen an increasingly wide expansion of online gambling during the pandemic, including sports betting, iLottery, and social gambling, as well as various methods of cashless payment. We expect this to escalate as more state governments face budget shortfalls in the next two years. Protecting consumers who gamble, as well as their families, needs to be part of legislation, regulation and gambling company operations. Our conference is an important tool to increase knowledge, conversation and action on all these aspects, and thereby help mitigate harm.
Now more than ever, it is critical that we all work together to learn about new methods for prevention, treatment and responsible gambling as well as developments in the field.
