Virtual Advice:AM | Gambling Advertising


Wednesday 31st May, 10:00-11:30 (BST)

The number of gambling ads has been rising year on year since 2007 when the sector was de-regulated as part of the Gambling Act. This has led to increased scrutiny on ads in the sector, making it more important than ever to ensure your ads are legal, decent, honest, and truthful

During this course our experts will guide you through the relevant parts of the Advertising Codes, equipping you with the tools needed to create compliant campaigns. We will also explain the implications of the new 'strong' appeal rule that came into place in October 2022.  

This training will provide you with two CPD hours.
