GLI’s free-to-attend Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtables continue to set the standard as the region’s premier educational and networking conference exclusively for government representatives. Presented by GLI’s renowned GLI University® educational division, the Roundtables regularly draw an impressive list of gaming and lottery regulators, government lotteries, and government representatives, including legislators from across the region and around the world.
The Roundtables offer three exciting and information-packed days of learning, networking, and collaboration with a focus on key topics impacting the rapidly evolving Latin American and Caribbean gaming and lottery sectors. These include policy and legislative updates; online gaming, sports betting, and lottery regulation; licensing; industry’s technological innovations; cybersecurity; money laundering controls; responsible gambling; and much more.

The 2019 Roundtable celebrated in San José Costa Rica was hosted by the Junta de Proteccion Social, Costa Rica´s National Lottery and was attended by 100 representatives from 19 countries including Argentina, Aruba, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curaçao, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, and Uruguay.
GLI’s Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtables would not be the outstanding success they are today without the enthusiastic support of the host regulators throughout the region.

GLI looks forward to welcoming you to our next Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable. We hope to see you there!
The President of Junta de Protección Social, Mrs. Esmeralda Britton González, MBA, said, “I want to deeply thank GLI for considering Costa Rica as the venue for the region’s 12th Regulators Roundtable, held in our country. This is a very important event where regulators from all the countries of the region meet, and information and experiences are shared that allow us to know the progress that each country has in terms of lotteries and gaming. The quality of the speakers, the strict order of the presentations, and the variety in the modality of each session allowed the participants to take full advantage of each panel. I recognize and congratulate GLI for the success of this event. I hope GLI will continue to conduct these educational events each year, which allow the regulated industry to continue advancing in the gaming world, learn from other experiences, and of course, advance in certification processes that allow us to improve the quality of the products and services we offer.”
The Executive Director of the Gaming Inspection and Regulation Service of Portugal, Mr. Luís Felipe Coelho said, “The Latin America and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable that took place in San José, Costa Rica will surely be marked in the memory of all its attendees as a high-quality event for the topics discussed and the highest-level presentations that we had the opportunity to witness. Certainly, the exchange of ideas and experiences has enriched regulators for future actions in their respective jurisdictions.”
Mr. Manuel Antonio San Román Benavente, General Director of Casino Games and Slot Machines of Peru said, “I have had the opportunity to participate in the Regulators Roundtable promoted by GLI, which had an excellent setting in the city of San José, Costa Rica; a welcoming country with kind people and great economic development. My experience participating at all the Roundtables promoted by GLI to date with the collaboration of the host regulators that have welcomed us every year, has allowed us to bring new advances and improvements in the regulations of each one of the different countries participating. It should be noted that the continuous participation of regulators in the different Roundtables, when exchanging experiences, allows us to keep up-to-date with the technological developments that are emerging year by year, as well as new techniques and solutions to the common problems that we are facing. Congratulations to the entire GLI team, as well as to Mrs. Esmeralda Britton, President of the Junta de Protección Social of Costa Rica, in her capacity as host regulator for this impeccable organization, which leaves in our memories pleasant and useful lessons.”
