The first day of a conference is usually focused on opportunities in new markets but this year's World Gaming Executive Summit event in Barcelona was dominated by talk of social responsibility.
In the last edition of our sister publication GIQ Magazine, we provided an in-depth introduction to corporate social responsibility. It is now proving to be a key topic of discussion at this year's WGES event.
In a presentation to delegates UK Gambling Commission executive director of corporate affairs and research Tim Miller described social responsibility as key to the industry's longevity. Readers may have found it similar to our feature with Miller highlighting the worsening perception of gambling, and emphasising the need for companies to do what customers and society expect, and not just what’s legally required.
