ICE London: Ana-Maria Baciu moderated the Central and Eastern Europe Roundtable, ICE VOX series

February 2024

Ana-Maria Baciu, Managing Partner of SIMION & BACIU was the moderator of the Central and Eastern Europe Roundtable organized during the 2024 ICE VOX series.

The debate provided an excellent platform for stakeholders to understand the trends that they should expect in the coming year.

Ana-Maria Baciu, after moderating the discussion of the esteemed lineup of speakers, shared the indubitable verdict:

2024 is a year of change for all jurisdictions that were part of the roundtable โ€“ Ukraine, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, and Romania.

Key takeaways to be included in the agenda of all those concerned with the gaming and gambling industry:

  • Gambling continues to be a relevant industry in the region.
  • Money (from taxes) continues to make the (gambling) world go round.
  • Responsible gambling is a constant concern, in some countries, better addressed than in others.
  • Advertising is under scrutiny and probably subject to limitations that will soon be imposed.
  • Other restrictions apply (e.g., exclusion of land-based gambling halls from bigger or smaller cities, depending on the jurisdiction).

Ana-Maria concluded her pots-log on the event highlighting that:
