VIXIO GamblingCompliance proudly announces the official shortlist for the 2021 Global Regulatory Awards

Today, VIXIO GamblingCompliance unveiled the shortlist for the 2021 Global Regulatory Awards (GRAs). Now in their fifth year, the VIXIO GRAs recognise and celebrate the achievements of individuals, teams and businesses across the gambling landscape who have excelled in the field of compliance, corporate social responsibility and responsible gambling over the course of the year.

This year’s shortlist showcases a host of progressive businesses, all of which have demonstrated resilience in a recovering global economy and their ability to adapt to an increasingly complex regulatory environment, innovate and embrace responsible gambling.

Mike Woolfrey, CEO, VIXIO, said: “This year has been one of the most competitive years yet, with the judges having to consider yet another record number of entries to shortlist just under 100 finalists across 18 categories. Every year the standard gets higher as the industry moves to an ever-greater culture of compliance. Our judging process is extremely rigorous and the awards are hotly contested, so being shortlisted is a highly significant achievement. We look forward to welcoming everyone for a very special evening of celebration.”

Presentation of the 2021 Global Regulatory Award winners will take place at a black-tie ceremony, returning in person to the prestigious De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, London, on October 21, 2021. Tickets can be booked here.
