Kindred Prepares for October’s Sustainable Gambling Conference

Next month will see Kindred host the Sustainable Gambling Conference for the seventh successive year. The conference will be taking place in Amsterdam on October 19 and it has been given the theme “Safer Gambling - An Honest conversation”.

Kindred is aiming to bring together people from within and outside the gambling industry who want to work towards a trusted and safe gambling industry. The conference is taking place at the Cruijff ArenA and the speaker line-up includes Johann Hari, a New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Jonathan Parke and Professor Mark Griffiths.

The Swedish Elite Football and European Football Development Network are also set to participate in the iGaming event. The conference has been timed to coincide with the UK and European Safer Gambling Week and it will be a hybrid event with parts of it streamed online.

We want to facilitate the difficult conversations, build a platform where we can all meet and share experiences and insights so that we can find the good, sustainable solutions for our industry together. I am really excited to welcome Johann Hari as our keynote speaker. Hari is a best-selling author on addiction and online behaviour and I am sure the industry can learn a lot from him. I am also looking forward to hear from SEF and EFDN on the beneficial collaboration between sports teams and gambling operators, which is a topic that is very relevant.

Anna JeinKindred Group Head of Sustainability

Jein went on to explain that the industry is becoming ever more “transparent and proactive” and that she hopes that this is partly down to the Sustainable Gambling Conference. However, she believes that there is more work to be done and she added, “We simply cannot solve future challenges without more collaboration across the value chain and we are happy to take the lead in this.”
