Gambling licensing solicitor speaks at annual Institute of Licensing Training Conference

Nick Arron, partner at Poppleston Allen presents at this year's Summer Training Conference

Amongst other legal items, Nick presented on the Gambling Act 2005 white paper and details on the 4th National Lottery licence preferred bidder.

On the 15th June 2022, The Institute of Licensing held its Summer Training Conference in Nottingham. Boasting well over 70 professionals from the world of gambling and alcohol licensing, policing and security, this proved a great event to learn about the latest legal developments and meet like-minded individuals.

After formal introductions from the Institute of Licensing chairman Daniel Davies, the event saw presentations from:

  • Caroline Henry, Nottingham Police and Crime Commissioner
  • Georgia Jackson, Home Office
  • Alex Flint, Nottingham BID
  • Nick Arron, Poppleston Allen
  • Gary Grant, Francis Taylor Building
  • James Button, James Button & Co.
  • Stephen Turner, Hull City Council

Nick Arron, partner at Poppleston Allen, comments: “As always with Institute of Licensing, this was an impeccably organised and very well attended event. I was delighted to give an update on the review of the Gambling Act 2005 and the call for evidence white paper, plus other legal items such as the public health licensing objective in relation to gambling premises licensing.

“And, much to people’s interest, information about the fourth National Lottery licence preferred bidder and Camelot litigation.”

This event was of particular importance as it fell during the National Licensing Week 2022; a week which celebrates the role and importance of licensing in the UK to keep people safe when enjoying a variety of hospitality and pleasure activities.

The Institute of Licensing has several training events planned throughout the rest of the year, including their National Training Conference taking place on the 16th, 17th and 18th of November 2022 at Crowne Plaza Stratford Upon Avon.
