On 21 December 2021, KnowNow Limited made the following announcement in relation to its Player Protection Forum and Workshop originally schedules to take place on 18 & 19 January 2022:
New dates for the Player Protection Forum and Workshop.
We have regrettably had to make the decision to move the forthcoming Player Protection Forum and Workshop to the new dates of the 1st to 3rd March 2022.
We were hoping to run the event as planned on 18th to 20th January. We have an amazing lineup of speakers all set to discuss all the most pressing topics, fantastic sponsors and a number of delegates signed up from across the industry. None of that will change – it will just take place later than planned. Read More.
With the new Omicron variant leading to rising COVID cases across Europe and the Mayor of London declaring a major incident over the weekend we believe the only responsible course of action is to move the event back to the new dates.
A huge amount of work goes into planning all of our events and whilst we really did not want to have to move the date, safety of all of our attendees is at the heart of this decision.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the player protection community to the event at the start of March. Read more.
David’s ‘fireside chat’ with Brigid is now scheduled to take place at 9.50am on the second day of the Player Protection Forum (Wednesday 2 March 2022) – full details here)
David Clifton will be conducting his third ‘Fireside Chat’ with Betting & Gaming Council Chairman Brigid Simmonds on Day 2 of KnowNow’s Player Protection Forum 2022, being held at County Hall, London, on 1 & 2 March 2022.
This will be taking place two years after David’s first ‘Fireside Chat’ with Brigid at KnowNow’s third annual ‘Social Responsibility for Gambling Operators’ conference in January 2020 (shortly after her appointment as BGC Chairman) and what a lot has happened in the intervening period!
With an expectation that the Government White Paper in relation to its current Review of the Gambling Act 2005 may have been published by the time of the ‘Player Protection Forum 2022’, David will have many points for discussion with Brigid and this event looks set to live up to David’s following comment that appears on KnowNow’s advance publicity:
The supremely focused KnowNow Limited conferences with an always excellent choice of speakers should be regarded as “must attend” events by anyone interested in achieving the highest standards of compliance in the gambling sector.
More information (including the agenda for both days of the event) can be found on the KnowNow website here.
