The SBC Awards provides the perfect Christmas party in London

The sports betting industry is gearing up for its annual celebration at the SBC Awards, held on Tuesday December 5 at The Artillery Garden in central London, which doubles up as the perfect Christmas party for everyone involved in the sector.

The presentation of 17 Supplier awards, 11 Operator/Affiliate awards and three SBC Sports Betting Hall of Fame inductees might take centre stage, but all delegates will also be treated to a sparkling wine and cocktail reception, an exclusive three-course seated dinner, Christmas themed snacks, and a renowned London DJ.

The evening’s entertainment will extend to a bespoke ‘Boogie Wonder Nights’ show created by Full circle, while The Artillery Garden at The HAC, the latest in a line of stunning capital city venues used by SBC Events, even comes complete with in-built dodgems.

 

Paul Mills, chief operating officer at SBC, said: “Attendees can expect an amazing night at the SBC Awards with the champagne flowing on arrival at the welcome reception, free bar all night, superb three course meal and spectacular entertainment.

“The Boogie Wonder Nights festive theme will create an electric atmosphere for guests to celebrate a great year for the sports betting industry and kick off the Christmas celebrations in style. As well as the DJ, we have the fantastic Boogie Wonder Nights dance act to wow the audience, while we must not forget the dodgems ride which will prove to be a big hit.”

OPTIMA and Golden Race have been confirmed as headline sponsors of the #sbcawards2017, while the list of companies to book a table already includes VSoftCo, Racing Post, HiPay, Perform, Square in the Air, Trustly, InBet Games, Vermantia, FavBet, bet365, Sporting Solutions and Jeton.

All companies interested in joining this Christmas themed industry celebration are being encouraged to act quickly to avoid disappointment, while there is an even greater level of urgency surrounding the nomination phase, which draws to a close on Friday October 6.

Once this deadline has passed, the Operator/Affiliate Awards will be put to a vote by anyone that attended this year’s Betting on Football and Betting on Sports conferences, while nominees for the Supplier Awards will be assessed by a hand-picked panel of experts.

This judging panel features the CEO’s from Bets10, Better Collective, OLBG, Superscommesse, Betaland, BetBright, BetCris, FavBet, Fortuna, Mr Green, Mybet, PariMatch, Pinnacle, SNAI, Spiffx, Sports Interaction, Star Sports Bet, TopBetta, BetConstruct, Golden Race, OPTIMA and Don Best.
