Peter Greenhill to moderate Europe focused panel at IGA

Equiom’s head of eBusiness and eGaming, Peter Greenhill, will be speaking at the iGaming Asia Congress, taking place from Mar. 21-23 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Macau.

The congress is Asia's leading social casino and mobile gaming event. It attracts delegates from all over the world with an interest in Asia’s gaming industry, including sports betting, online casino, lottery, social gaming and mobile gaming operators.

Peter will lead a panel discussion, “Jurisdictional Opportunities in Europe”, on Tuesday Mar. 22 with representatives from Alderney, Malta and the Isle of Man. Panellists will discuss how companies decide where to be licensed and the comparative advantages of each jurisdiction.

Peter commented: “Taking a multi-jurisdictional approach to licensing has become the standard  for the world’s leading operators, and the smaller gaming companies are following suit. In each case, the balance between cost and projected profit from each new jurisdiction is key. With offices and expertise spanning several jurisdictions, Equiom is ideally placed to help companies set up their headquarters in the correct location and gain licences wherever needed. I am looking forward to discussing the relative benefits of the multi-jurisdictional approach at the congress, alongside leading figures from the industry.”

Peter will be joined at the congress by colleague Severino Sumulong, director, business development, who is based in Equiom’s Hong Kong office.
