    +vat

    Opposing unlawful gaming, offer extension, taxation based on expenditure and rules to safeguard players have all led to the recovery of most of the unofficial ‘activity’ with a consequent increase of gaming flows in the Italian legitimate circuit. With the advancements of the regulatory and gaming framework the sector’s attractiveness has increased and over recent years there have been two major developments: Italian players have returned to the legitimate circuit and the entry in the Italian market of big international operators that have brought their base of Italian clients with them.

    Digital Transformation: B2b… or not to be

    €110.00
    +vat

Innovation possibilities are, in fact, plenty for businesses that, however, are still a long way from being real “digital organizations”.
