Legalized sports betting in the country has taken off and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. That’s why SBC Summit North America is looking to have an in-depth examination of the industry and all the opportunities it will present this year. The summit is scheduled for November 2021 in Atlantic City, which has so far grown to become the gambling mecca of the country.
As we’ve already witnessed, sports betting is having a huge moment in the country. As such, the growth opportunities available are immense and ripe for the taking. By organizing a summit that allows all the major gambling players in Atlantic City and the country to converge under one roof, industry players can share and learn information that will allow them to succeed in this dynamic but burgeoning sector.
SBC has been focused on establishing itself as a trusted information provider in the rapidly expanding North American sports betting scene. Following the success of the first conference held in New Jersey, the conferences and exhibitions put together by SBC see thousands of senior executives including operators, sports organizations, regulators, payment companies, affiliates, suppliers gather together each year, and this year will be no different.
These individuals show up for a jam-packed program that’s characterized by shrewd panel members. Not only do the attendees gain vital knowledge that will steer them forward in their various capacities in sports betting, but they also get to exploit the high-level networking opportunities.
The SMB Summit was created to replace the Betting On America event which was scheduled for June. However, following lengthy discussions with sponsors, partners, as well as major operators, the event organizers opted to move the event to later in the year, hence the new November scheduling.
Moving the event to a later date will allow participants and the attendees to make ample preparation leading up to the summit. Although the SBC Summit North America has replaced Betting on America, the new summit promises to retain everything that made BOSA the premier event in the country.
So what should attendees know about the 2021 SBC Summit North America?
As the top sports betting and iGaming event in the country, the SBC Summit needs no introduction. This year’s summit will be held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in New Jersey between November 30th and December 2nd, 2021. As mentioned earlier, the event is designed to bring together all the major players in the sports wagering and iGaming industry in the country.
The summit will consist of high-level discussions, business meetings, and of course, networking opportunities. These industry-specific discussions will feature top casino operators, sports organizations, and regulators who will all be present to share their insights and ideas of arising opportunities in the American gambling space.
Along with these discussions, there will also be an expo hall displaying all the newest innovations in the industry from top suppliers. The Sports Betting Community (SBC) has quickly become synonymous with sports betting events and trade shows all over the country that include but not limited to the likes of Betting on Sports Europe, as well as SBC Summit Barcelona.
Is it worth attending?
For anyone in the sports betting industry, the SBC Summit is one of those events that are a must-attend, especially if you want to rub shoulders with the whos-who of the industry. In the past years, some of the topics covered by the professionals include esports, horse racing, regulation, brick, and mortar gaming, as well as the state of sports betting in the country in general.
Even though regulated sports gambling is now available across much of the nations, there is still a long way that we have to go. Only a fraction of the states offer regulated sports gambling and while most operators are up and running in these states, the gambling market in the country is far from realizing its full potential.
There is obviously no way of denying the challenges that have been brought forth by the pandemic. And many experts believe that the only way the industry is going to get over the setbacks is through continued innovation. With so many adjustments being made as a result of the contagion, the only thing that will remain constant through these tough times is innovation.
One of the key areas of interest in the sports betting market now is esports, which has proven that it has staying power during the pandemic. Sadly though, the esports industry in the country hasn’t quite taken off as it should and that’s partly due to the restrictive regulations that are in place. As sports wagering continues to become more mainstream, these restrictions should hopefully ease up thus creating room for growth.
Those attending the summit can expect over 200 senior executive speakers from the country as well as other thriving international sports betting markets. The expo will also feature more than 50 leading suppliers who will pitch up to showcase all their newest products and offerings.
Another great addition to the summit to look forward to is the first SBC Awards North America, which will give awards for the best performing operators, affiliates, and suppliers in the country. attendees will also enjoy a series of stylish venues where the participants and delegates can mingle freely with one another as they discussed informal aspects of being the gambling business.
Because the SBC Summit North America is digital, those participants that don’t wish to attend in person will also have the option to take part at home. The summit will make use of advanced technological platforms that will give people at-home access to the content discussed in the conference as well as connect with other industry players.
The booths at the event will also be interactive, which will ensure that the at-home delegates enjoy an experience that’s similar to the one on the ground. If you consider yourself a player in the growing sports betting market in the country, then this summit is a must-attend.
