ECA Casino Industry Forum 2023

Casino Monte Carlo

The European Casino Association Industry Forum 2023 will be set against the spectacular backdrop of Montreux in Switzerland and hosted by the Casino Barrière de Montreux from September 26-29, 2023. As a focal event devoted to both the land-based casino industry in Europe, the ECA Industry Forum 2023 will bring together the leading voices of the industry to discuss the most critical issues facing the casino sector across the continent.

Montreux is located in the western region of Switzerland, situated on the shore of Lake Geneva, and surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Alps. Montreux has evolved into a thriving cultural centre, hosting international jazz festivals, world-renowned artists, and global conventions.

A key point of attraction in Montreux is the Casino Barrière de Montreux, an iconic destination that first opened its doors in 1881 and throughout the 20th century quickly became a hot spot for unforgettable nights out. Disaster struck on December 4, 1971, when the Montreux Casino burned down, inspiring English rock group, Deep Purple, to write “Smoke on the Water”. The Casino Barrière de Montreux reopened in 1975, maintaining its unique style of timeless charm that draws guests from around the globe.

The ECA is pleased to be back in Switzerland for this year’s Industry Forum and is looking forward to discussing the most significant issues facing the casino industry in Europe today. Some of the topics on the agenda include regulatory changes, responsible gambling initiatives, emerging technologies, new opportunities for market growth, and more. The industry is facing an ever-evolving landscape, and this event provides the ideal opportunity for industry experts to come together and share their expertise, insights, and experiences.

The ECA Industry Forum in Montreux will provide the perfect backdrop for its members, partners and world renowned speakers to share ideas, discuss pressing issues, and collaborate upon finding innovative solutions. The ECA looks forward to welcoming you to Montreux and the Casino Barrière de Montreux in September 2023.
