RGA’s Clive Hawkswood Keen To Share Consumer Protection Knowledge And Aspirations At EUROMAT Summit


Taking place on 2nd-4th June, the EUROMAT Summit will attract professionals from every facet of the European gaming and amusements industries. Regulators, operators, manufacturers, representatives of trade associations and other interest groups will be converging on the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort for two days of lively debate and unsurpassed networking.

New for 2018, the Summit will feature an extended two day programme, with one entire day being devoted to Social Responsibility.

EUROMAT President Jason Frost explains: “For any forward-looking business, the welfare of its customers should be of concern and this is particularly true of the gaming sector. Some recent high-profile examples have shown that where operators have not taken this issue seriously, the very existence of the business can be called into question.”

Organisers have confirmed that Clive Hawkswood, Chief Executive of the Remote Gambling Association, has agreed to participate as a panellist for the session entitled: Managing Social Responsibility In Different Gaming Channels. The Remote Gambling Association (RGA) is a London and Brussels based trade association whose members are all licensed for gambling purposes in Europe. Members include some of the largest and most respected internet gambling companies, many of which also have interests in land based gaming.

Much of the RGA’s focus is around encouraging high standards of probity and integrity within the betting and gaming industries. The Association is committed to encouraging social responsibility in a number of ways, including support for charities and initiatives to help those who have gambling problems.

Clive is also currently Chairman of GAMSTOP, the new UK national online self-exclusion system, and is the author of the Industry Code for Social Responsibility Advertising. Clive also sits on the cross-sector groups: Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG) and Gambling Anti Money Laundering Group (GAMLG).

Clive is looking forward to an active role in the Summit: “Improving levels of consumer protection is a common objective for all sectors of the gambling industry and the Summit provides a great opportunity to share learnings and aspirations in this important area of work,” confirms Clive.
