Ibero-American Gaming Summit is an annual meeting of reference for the gaming industry used to analyze and define the interests, obstacles and challenges of leading industry players in a global context.

Medellín (Colombia) will host the Fifth Ibero-American Gaming Summit, the annual meeting of reference for the gaming industry to be held on May 10th. The Summit will bring together key players and regulators within the sector with the aim of improving regulatory mechanisms and the exchange of information between companies and regulators.

The Summit is presented as the only meeting point that brings together regulators from all Latin American countries to strengthen government and corporate bonds.

The Government of Colombia, through the regulatory body of the Ministry of Finance, Coljuegos, will act as the Institutional Ambassador of the meeting. Moreover, as in all previous editions, the Summit has the support of the Ministry of Finance and Public Administration of Spain through the General Directorate of Gaming. Colombian associations of gaming will also participate in this event.

After the three previous editions, held in Madrid and Mexico, more recently, in Cartagena, the Ibero-American Summit of Gaming looks to further expand its borders in to more countries within the Latin American region.

Colombia became the first country in Latin America to regulate online gaming last year. Therefore, it is immensely interesting that this forum is held again Colombia, both for its current context as for its broad market and the progress of the sector at national, regional and local level.
