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 Responsibility in 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 Responsibility in Gaming Awards.

The very first Responsibility in 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 Responsibility in Gaming Awards will feature 10 distinct award categories:

  1. Responsible Gaming Initiative of the Year

  2. Best Use of Technology for Responsible Gaming Purposes

  3. Governance, Oversight, and Social Care Organization of the Year

  4. Operator of the Year

  5. Gaming Destination of the Year

  6. Female Role Model of the Year

  7. Marketing Campaign of the Year

  8. Digital Product of the Year

  9. Gaming Industry Ambassador of the Year

  10. 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 Responsibility in 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.
