Subject: IAGR Webinar - Understanding the Impacts of Asian Betting Markets: Why is Asia so relevant to the rest of the world?

Join us for a webinar this Friday, March 20 2015

Dear IAGR members

We would like to invite you to join us for an IAGR webinar, held in conjunction with iGaming Business Magazine.

Understanding the impacts of Asian betting markets:
Why is Asia so relevant to the rest of the world?

In this webinar Professor David Forrest will offer insight into how Asian markets operate and their potential impacts on betting markets in your jurisdictions.

David will explain how the hierarchical structures found in Asian markets have adapted to the online world. How at the top level four online ‘supra-national operators’ aggregate bets worth billions of dollars from a vast network of intermediaries and agents. He will offer insight into how these ‘supra-nationals’ impact on betting markets and sports betting integrity/match fixing.

The webinar offers you the opportunity to not only increase your understanding of how these markets operate but also to further explore the implications for sports betting integrity with David, who is recognised as one of the leading world experts in this field.
