Does regulation inhibit innovation in the gaming sector? How could regulation support start-ups and innovators in the sector?
Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum Roundtable with regulators, SMEs and academics
26 October, 11.30 – 14.00 @ Edinburgh Training and Conference Centre, 16 St Mary’s St, Edinburgh, EH1 1SU
What’s the event?
The Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum (DRCF) is a forum of four UK regulators – the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and Ofcom – and was set up to drive greater cooperation on digital regulation.
Innovation is key to digital markets. We recognise that the gaming industry is a vibrant, innovative and growing sector, so we are bringing together gaming start-ups, small SMEs and academics to discuss the regulatory challenges faced by innovators and how regulation could better support innovation.
This roundtable is hosted in association with Scottish Games Week. It will consist of two roundtable sessions and includes a networking lunch. We will ensure that the views expressed by attendees are treated with confidence. We will not be recording this session and would like to encourage an open and frank discussion.
Who can attend?
This event is aimed specifically at small companies/sole traders (those without dedicated legal/regulatory colleagues), as we really want to understand the unique challenges they face in relation to regulation and engaging with regulators.
What’s in it for you?
• Ability to network with gaming industry SMEs based in Scotland and Northern England, as well as local academics with a gaming focus
• Unique opportunity to discuss with digital regulators challenges faced by your organisation when innovating or developing new ideas
• The chance to influence the views of the DRCF on how regulators can best support innovators and engage with industry.
