In a fast-changing UK, European and global environment for the gambling and betting sector, Gibraltar continues to carve out a successful path.

The 2021 Gibraltar eSummit took place on Thursday 23rd September 2021, bringing together key players and service providers to discuss Gibraltar’s potential in the global marketplace in a fast-changing commercial and regulatory environment. The agenda includeds summit favourites such as the Capital Markets update, M&A panel and Operator panel – slide presentations from the day have now been added below.

This was the tenth Gibraltar KPMG eSummit, building on the success of a series which has firmly established itself as a highlight in the eGaming calendar - an event ‘not to be missed’ by any professional involved in the industry. The anniversary celebration was made particularly special by the fact that it provided the first opportunity for the KPMG global gaming team to assemble with our clients and advisers since the pandemic began.

A full eSummit report, sponsored by Continent 8 Techologies, will be distributed later in the year.
