Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

VIP Code: SBHJBFR

Bill Mummery, Executive Director of Celton Manx, operator of SBOBET, will be speaking at BetMarkets Asia on Wednesday 27th May on sports team sponsorship and what Asian operators need to understand about marketing in Europe. Visit http://www.BetMarketsAsia.com for details of the presentation.

SBOBET, ranked the most popular Asian bookie on the Betting Advice Forum, has done a deal to sponsor the West Ham football team shirts. They have also just received a licence from the Isle of Man regulators for a live dealer casino.

- Whether Europeans truly know what it takes to succeed in Asia
- How Asian operators can tailor their offerings to the European market
- Differences in product, functionality, customer service practices and marketing in the two regions
- Payment considerations in each market
- Where you should licence and base your business

Nowhere else will you get such a comprehensive overview of the sports betting, horse-racing and lottery market in Asia!

Business Continuity Certification Training in Qatar

Friday, March 20th, 2009

Business interruptions can strike anytime, anywhere. Recent disasters in China and around the world, plus the Internet cable cutting incidents in the Arabian Gulf, serve as reminders that every business and government agency must have a business continuity plan.  Effective Business Continuity Planning ensures that vital business processes continue – no matter what happens.Business Continuity Certification Training

Most companies in the GCC do not yet have an effective business continuity plan to deal with these emergency situations. In case of a major disaster, 40% to 60% of these would go out of business forever or experience preventable loss of life.

For the very first time in Qatar, an international Diploma course in Business Continuity Management will be presented in Doha October 19-22, 2009 to teach a certified methodology for developing Business Continuity Plans.

“This is an exceptional and comprehensive course,” notes Michael Bittle, Managing Director of the Institute for Business Continuity Training which is hosting this workshop. “Every company in the GCC should send their senior management, HR, auditors, IT specialists, records managers, and virtually everyone involved with strategic business management.”

“This course is particularly useful for companies which do not have a Business Continuity Plan, or have one that only covers their computer systems. Recovering computer systems will not help you recover inventory, staff or customers,” adds Mr. Bittle.

Entitled “Effective Business Continuity Management”, this workshop incorporates both the new British Standard 25999 regarding Business Continuity Management, and the US NFPA 1600 standard. The course proceeds from project inception through to implementation and management. This includes sessions on Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis, and Awareness and Training, utilizing an “all hazards” approach applicable to every size and type of company.

Invitations have gone out to all major corporations and business associations in the Gulf Region to send representatives to the course. “We expect banking and insurance companies will attend,” Mr. Bittle says, “along with manufacturing, telecommunications and petroleum firms.” Companies are encouraged to send multiple representatives to receive special discounts.

Two internationally-recognized experts will lead this intensive 4 day training course. Mr. Bittle holds both the CBRM and CCM certifications in business continuity planning with over 20 years experience in disaster planning and emergency management. He will be supported by Mr. Robert Swift, CPCU, CIPA, CBCP who is a business interruption and contingency planning specialist with over thirty years experience in the insurance and financial services industry.

Course participants receive a Diploma in Business Continuity Management and also have the opportunity to write the professional exam for the Certified Continuity Manager designation at no additional charge. They also receive a CD-ROM full of electronic tools in Word, PDF, Excel and PowerPoint format covering all aspects of Business Continuity Planning, including a complete business resumption plan which can be used as a template for their own firm’s BCP.

The Institute for Business Continuity Training is a leading international agency specializing in training corporations and governments on the value of effective business continuity plans. IBCT’s training technique combines instructor-led discussion, case studies and group exercises, and their focus is to train participants in “industry best practices’ as well as the “best principles” for developing Business Continuity Plans for their firms. IBCT has prior experience providing training in Qatar, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The course fee is $ 2000 until April 19; after that it is $ 3000. Registration and details are available online at http://www.IBCT-Qatar.com. For additional information, contact Michael Bittle at mbittle@IBCT-Qatar.com.

EuroPLX Meetings Enter 15th Year; the 40th Meeting Now in Warsaw

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

Dielheim, Germany: The international pharma partnering forum EuroPLX 40 Warsaw will be held at the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel & Towers in Warsaw, Poland, on June 8 and 9, 2009

Now in its 15th year, EuroPLX Meetings are regular pharma and biopharma partnering events, attended by top-level business development executives from all over the world to discuss and negotiate pharma deals in a highly organised process.

The partnering scope of EuroPLX 40 Warsaw will span from patented and generic (incl. bio-generics and biosimilars), prescription and OTC drugs, to nutraceuticals and medical devices, and will comprise development, licensing, marketing, promotion, and distribution of products. The actual focus, however, will be made up by the participating companies and, as a new feature, will be displayed as a “Dynamic Partnering Focus” on www.europlx.com as soon as sufficient partnering information will become available.

Apart from negotiations, EuroPLX Meetings have evolved into a knowledge exchange platform where issues such as new target markets, national differences in regulatory and reimbursement practices, valuation, deal structures, portfolio planning, scenario modelling, alliance management and many others are discussed among the delegates who usually represent more than 30 countries from four to five continents.

Company owners or their family members, Chief Executive Officers, Managing Directors, Presidents, and Vice Presidents usually make up a third of the participants of EuroPLX Meetings. Directors and Heads of Business Development constitute another third. The decision power present is underscored by the size of the deals: some companies have initiated their largest deals ever at EuroPLX® (short for European Pharma License Exchange).

EuroPLX Meetings typically deliver an average of 23-24 pre-scheduled business negotiations per company, far above the mainstream partnering conference standard. They are smaller, more focused, and more affordable.

Early registration is recommended, as some previous EuroPLX Meetings had to be closed for registration even before the deadline due to overbooking. The regular fee is Euro 1,250. There is a discount of Euro 300 for early registrations by 25 March 2009, and for additional delegates (Euro 200).
