The conference dates back to 1974, when the founding figure in the gambling field, Dr. Bill Eadington, convened a few dozen thinkers to discuss a topic that had received virtually no research attention. Today, this conference is recognized as the largest gathering of gambling intellectuals in the world, with more than 550 multi-disciplinary attendees from 30+ countries attending the 17th edition.

Held only every three years, this conference convenes academics, researchers, and other experts from all fields, representing a diverse array of disciplines and points of view, to present their latest and most important work. Topics cover a broad variety of disciplines including economics, public policy, mathematics, social sciences, psychology, and treatment.

Join this unique opportunity to discuss and debate the future of this growing global industry with researchers, industry leaders, and regulators, as well as professional gamblers, and helping services.
