GLI hosts Latin American Regulators Roundtable

29 August 2013
LAS VEGAS -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– More than 40 gaming regulators and government lotteries from 12 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean gathered for GLI University's 2013 Latin American Regulators Roundtable, presented by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), the world's leading gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy.
This was the sixth consecutive year for the Latin American Roundtable, which has become a must-attend event for regulators throughout the region. This year's event took place Aug. 12-13 in Lima, Peru, at the Casa Andina Private Collection -- Miraflores Hotel.
The countries in attendance included Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Guyana, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Puerto Rico.
Leading global experts addressed attendees and spoke about today's most critical topics facing regulators and government lotteries in the Latin American and Caribbean land-based and iGaming markets, including iGaming/mobile regulatory best practices, ISS and risk-protection, live sports betting and wagering and responsible gaming best practices.
Additionally, Peruvian regulators spoke about the formalization of the gaming industry in Peru and the nationwide interconnection of the gaming machines to their office’s data center for tax reporting purposes, as well as a DGJCMT Peru onsite demonstration of the regulators' data center.
"We are very thankful to all of the regulators and government lotteries that were able to join us this year," said Lic. Karen Sierra-Hughes, GLI's Latin America development director. "We had an incredible mix of countries and cultures with a common purpose: to learn from each other's experience and to build and strengthen the relations among all the jurisdictions. GLI strongly believes in the importance of continuing training and education and the Regulators Roundtables are proof of that. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the DGJCMT for hosting us in Peru, for their hospitality and for opening the doors to all of the regulators and lotteries in attendance to explain and demonstrate the path they followed to achieve a gaming industry widely regulated and admired."
Next in the region, GLI University will present the Argentinean Regulator's Seminar, which will take place in Buenos Aires on Nov. 11.
