RGC readies for the return of the Discovery conference to Toronto

Event is set to run from March 25-27

At the end of the month, Toronto will once again become the center for responsible gambling discussion in the world. The Responsible Gambling Council’s Discovery Conference returns to the CF Toronto Eaton Centre Downtown Marriott from March 25-27.

The three-day conference is still open for registration to both attend in person or to attend virtually.

Behavioural change expert Dr. Lisa Bélanger will deliver this year’s keynote, entitled Reshaping the Game: Strategies for Behaviour Change in Responsible Gambling. During the talk, Bélanger will look at what factors go into facilitating behavioural changes as well as how to use in-person interactions and tech to help those changes transpire.

In addition to Bélanger, this year’s event includes a range of industry and RG experts, including RGC CEO Shelley White, OLG’s Catherine Meade, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s Mark Vander Linden, NeoSurf’s Andrea McGeachen and UNLV’s Dr. Kasra Ghaharian.

Topics for the conference include culturally conscious programming, advertising, fostering a culture of responsibility, the role of payment solutions in player protection and a focused look at the betting habits of Gen Z.

The festivities will also include a luncheon to honor the recipient of the Tibor Barsony Bursary. The award, named after the founder of RGC, is a $5,000 prize that goes to a Canadian student doing exceptional work in the field of problem gambling research.
