Clarion Gaming and the International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL), the non-profit corporation which provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge and insight to gaming law, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will see IMGL become Clarion’s Global Legal Partner on all legal and regulatory developments. The partnership will see both parties deploying their respective commercial and legal knowledge, expertise and marketing reach to enhance the quality of educational experiences offered to the global gaming industry.
In terms of specifics, the collaboration will see IMGL establish a high-profile presence at Clarion’s World Regulatory Briefing (WrB) event held at ICE London in February. IMGL will work alongside the team at Clarion Gaming to advise on critically important legal and regulatory content and help secure authoritative speakers at Clarion Gaming events, including at ICE North America, iGB Live! and ICE Africa on matters of vital concern to the industry. IMGL will have the option to conduct IMGL Masterclasses at all of Clarion Gaming's other events held throughout the world and will work with the production team to host and moderate legal tracks across the five verticals comprising: Sports Betting; iGaming; Esports; iLottery, and Affiliates. IMGL will continue to conduct their Spring and Autumn conferences and other IMGL Masterclasses globally.
Reflecting on the MOU, Kate Chambers, MD of Clarion Gaming said: “Our skill lies in our ability to develop, create and organise professional gaming events which have the right chemistry and which engage with our stakeholders throughout the world. This also entails working in collaboration with partners who are experts in their respective fields and the International Masters of Gaming Law certainly fit into that category. Working in partnership with the IMGL will enhance our ability to deliver professional, informed, business experiences for our stakeholders many of whom travel vast distances to attend our events. I look forward to a productive relationship with our friends at the IMGL and helping to deliver high quality educational and learning experiences to the global industry.”
