Ukrainian Gaming Week 2020: Legislation Is Underway, Event Program Is Being Arranged

On 11-12 of March, Ukrainian Gaming Week 2020 will become the first specialized event dedicated to the reviving gambling market of Ukraine. It will be organized by Smile-Expo international company.


On January 16, 2020, Verkhovna Rada has adopted the draft law № 2285-d on legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine in the first reading. 260 deputies voted in favor. The new bill is missing two paragraphs and has increased minimum age for players (21) in comparison with the previous version.

Adoption of the draft law in the first reading has become the starting point for the revival of the Ukrainian gambling industry. It still has to pass through some stages of the legislative procedure, but there’s already an understanding of what the legalization will look like. The program of UGW 2020 is being arranged in the same direction.


The influence of voting process on the event program

Organizers of UGW 2020 have been following the work of the government related to basic and alternative draft laws. Today, when the parliament has made its decision, we’re preparing the country’s largest specialized event taking into account all permits and limitations. It will include a two-day exhibition with top gambling market players and two days of the conference.


First day will be dedicated to such sectors:


  • online casino;
  • betting shops;
  • slots;
  • lotteries;
  • online poker.


On the second day, attendees will enjoy presentations based on real cases from the market players


Why Ukrainian Gaming Week 2020 is worth attending?

UGW 2020 is focused on the support of the legalization initiative. It will undoubtedly fill the budget, boosting medium and large business, generating new investment, developing the tourism sector and creating new jobs.


Key problem for the gambling business is the fact that 95% of the population doesn’t understand its specifics and obvious benefits, reacting negatively on the matter. Correction of the gambling industry image is the responsibility of its participants. That’s why it’s crucial to create a nice climate for its development and build a positive vison form the start.


On 11-12 of March, UGW 2020 will gather everyone interested in the development of the Ukrainian gambling business. Experts of the conference will share their experience and working strategies, as well as discuss key steps necessary for the market progress. Exhibitors will present their best practices that will help to launch business successfully.


Join to become a part of this complex but important process of Ukrainian gambling market development!
