World Regulatory Briefing

ICE Barca 2025

IGBA Barca 2025

WRB 2024 Agenda

This flagship meeting takes place every year at ICE VOX. It brings together policymakers, regulators and the industry to debate gaming’s key regulatory, legal and compliance developments.  

As regulated markets continue to emerge, others mature. The World Regulatory Briefing plays a vital role in communicating global gaming shifts, regulatory updates, new markets and the evolution of consumer protection. It is the only place where you can meet key stakeholders from multiple jurisdictions under one roof.  

Attendees can expect in-depth discussions, presentations and our unique, country-specific roundtables, where delegates can stop off at different ‘destinations’ to meet the relevant regulator and gaming companies in an informal setting.
