CEO’s Message

Dear friends and colleagues,

I’m delighted to share with you the exciting program planned for our annual New Horizons in Responsible Gambling conference, taking place in Vancouver February 13-15, 2018. Each year we strive to go beyond our attendee’s expectations, and this year is no different!

As has come to be expected, New Horizons presents a unique opportunity to connect with your colleagues and global experts in the dynamic, rapidly evolving field of responsible and problem gambling.

Our 2018 event will feature a thought-provoking keynote address by Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome, who will speak about mental health, and the importance of research in reducing stigma and building necessary supports for those affected by mental illness.

Our keynote for day two of the conference is Johann Hari, New York Times bestselling author, journalist and TED talk presenter, who will tackle better ways to define, understand and address addiction.

We will also be hosting an incredible lineup of leading-edge delegates, speakers and panelists who will delve into everything from new treatment approaches to data and research to help mitigate gambling-related harm, and much more.

I encourage you to register now, and look forward to welcoming you to picturesque Vancouver, for an extraordinary few days of innovation, insightful discussion, and a chance to connect with some of the best in the field of responsible and problem gambling.

Best regards,

Jim Lightbody, BCLC President & CEO
