A conference, “Shrinking The Global Divide: Synergy, Service and Sustainability", is set to take place in the Bahamas next month to discuss online gambling and its benefits on tourism.
Prime Minister Perry Christie has agreed that gambling regulatory legislation should be reviewed.
Uri Clinton, a senior legal executive for the huge Baha Mar resort and casino in the Bahamas, will be a speaker at the conference.
“One way that you differentiate yourself from the global competition is to understand what types of gaming products and best practices will appeal to your market segment. Understand who the market is [and] what they look for in a casino; and then we should write regulations that not only properly support the oversight of gaming operations from a regulatory perspective, but also allow the operator the flexibility to provide gaming products, which the market is looking for,” he says.
Additional conference speakers will be: Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace, former Bahamas Minister of Tourism and Secretary General of the Caribbean Tourism Organization; and keynote speaker Patrick McCudden, Senior Vice President, Real Estate and Development, Latin America, Hyatt.
