John Hagan To Participate In EUROMAT Summit
Leading international gambling lawyer John Hagan of Harris Hagan has committed to playing an active role in the 2018 EUROMAT Summit, taking place 4th-6th June in Monaco.
Formerly a commercial litigator, John has specialised in gambling law since 1998 and in addition to advising many of the world’s largest gambling operators, John is frequently instructed by other law firms, private equity firms and banks to provide specialist licensing and regulatory expertise in respect of corporate investments and transactions.
John’s roles include Secretary of the International Association of Gaming Advisors, a member of the International Masters of Gaming Law, Deputy Chairman of problem gambling charity Gamcare and Chairman of the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling
John will be a panellist on the opening session, Legal Horizon Scan, and on the second day will participate in the session entitled Technology: Balancing the Player Experience and Consumer Protection.
Anticipating a highly productive two days, John Hagan commented: “I am a huge advocate of industry working together on everything from best practice on social responsibility to industry relations with government and regulators. The land based sector maybe needs more of these conferences. They foster relationships and enhance industry knowledge, particularly of emerging trends and the latest technology. Of course, the fact that the Euromat Summit is in Monte Carlo doesn’t do any harm either!”
EUROMAT President Jason Frost is looking forward to welcoming John to the Summit: “John is a frequent and respected conference speaker and a regular contributor of articles to national and international gaming publications. John has a vast experience in many facets of the industry and his presence will bring much to the event; we’re delighted that he will be taking part,” revealed Jason.
Offering a wide-reaching programme and unrivalled networking opportunities, the EUROMAT Summit will reach out to regulators, manufacturers and operators from within Europe and beyond.
