Covering both land-based and online gambling, there will be several round table discussions and localised
meetings that will look at the current conditions and future prospects across each country. Separate reviews on
the Latvian, Estonian, Lithuanian, Danish and Swedish markets are scheduled, with speakers from local online
gambling regulators and legal firms already confirmed.
Upcoming Changes And Opportunities In The Region
Recent developments under discussion include changes to Latvian live dealer licencing fees which have been
set at €400,000 per year, and the potential ending of the monopoly currently enjoyed in Sweden by the state-

opportunities for new technology in the Baltic States will also be explored.
