  • 1. IMGL Masterclass at ICE 2014 Wednesday 05 February 2014 South Gallery Suites 23-26 ExCel London One Western Gateway Royal Victorian Dock London E16 1XL (Information current as of 16 January) 10:30 - 11:00 Refreshments & Networking 11:00 - 11:05 President’s Opening Address Speaker: Joerg Hofmann, President, International Masters of Gaming Law and Partner, MELCHERS law firm, Germany 11:05 – 11:45 Gaming Convergence It has become fashionable to divide the gaming industry into sectors: online and land-based. They have been viewed as competitors in the same industry, but should they be viewed in this manner? Are there undeveloped synergies between online and land-based gaming? This panel will assess these questions and, more generally, survey the convergence of online and land-based gaming. Moderator: J. Kelly Duncan, Partner, Jones Walker, Louisiana Speakers: Marc Ellinger, Partner, Blitz, Bardgett & Deutsch, L.C., Missouri; Kevin P. Mullally, General Counsel and Director of Government Relations, Gaming Laboratories International, LLC, Missouri; Sue Schneider, Owner, eGaming Brokerage, Missouri; Franz Wohlfahrt, CEO, Novomatic Group of Companies, Austria 11:45 – 12:15 Refreshments & Networking 12:15 – 13:00 Sports Betting Numerous topics will be covered during this lively and interactive session. Firstly the topic gaining most press will be discussed: Sports Integrity with a particular focus on Europe and Asia. ‘Black Market jurisdictions’, where there is no proper enforcement against match fixing, will be a key discussion point. Tying in with this, in-play betting will be canvassed. In this context, the emphasis will be on whether the steps to prohibit in-play betting are likely to reduce match fixing. Finally, updates on licensing for sports betting products will be provided. Moderator: Michael Lipton, Partner, Dickinson Wright, Canada Speakers: Michael O’Kane, Chairman, European Sports Security Association and Trading Director of Ladbrokes Plc, United Kingdom; Mary O’Loughlin, Legal Counsel, Paddy Power Plc, Ireland; Nick Tofiluk, Executive Director of Regulatory Operations, Gambling Commission, United Kingdom; Philippe Vlaemminck, Partner, ALTIUS and Chair EU, Lotteries, Gambling & Sport Law Committee, Belgium

Particular attention will be paid to Brazil, India, Israel, Japan, Singapore, Southeast Asia and the Peru. Moderator: Robert W.
