Nominations open for expanded SBC Awards

Nominations for SBC Awards have opened with an expanded 28 categories up for grabs.

Held on Tuesday 5 December, this year’s SBC Awards is will recognize excellence in all areas of the sports betting industry by splitting the categories into 11 Operator/Affiliate awards and 17 Supplier awards.

SBC will also once again be recognizing those who have contributed a great deal to the industry by inducting new entrants to the SBC Sports Betting Hall of Fame.

The stunning Artillery Gardens at the HAC in Central London has been confirmed as the host venue for this year’s event, reflecting the expanded scope of the awards. 500 industry delegates will be gathering for fun networking, a sit down meal and live entertainment and possibly picking up an SBC Award trophy for excellence in their field.

SBC Founder & CEO Rasmus Sojmark explained: “Given the many elements of the sports betting value chain, we felt it was only fair to expand our categories in order to recognise the hard work at all stages that goes into making the sports betting industry such an innovative and dynamic one.

“Our new venue at the Artillery Gardens is spectacular and the perfect place for the last big industry meet up of the year before Christmas.”
