Strong speaker lineup for next week’s Betting on Sports

Next week Olympia Conference Centre will open its doors to more than 1,200 high-level delegates, including representatives of more than 120 operators, 80 high-level affiliates and hundreds of the most prominent industry suppliers and service providers.

More than 180 speakers will feature across eight main conference tracks across September 13-14 – Leaders in Betting, Betting on Esports, Betting on Racing, Betting on Innovation, Sport in Focus, Betting on Regulation, Betting on Affiliates and Betting on Data.

The star-studded list of speakers includes Sky Betting & Gaming CEO Richard Flint, Superbet group director of E-Commerce Jamie Hart, Pinnacle CEO Paris Smith, Mybet CEO Markus Peuler and Phil Siers, chief commercial officer for Betfred Group, alongside senior executives from OPTIMA, British Horseracing Authority, Danske Spil, XL Media, LiveSport Media, Better Collective, Ladbrokes Coral, BetBright, ASAP Italia, Matchbook, SBTech, BetConstruct, Playtech and Sportradar.

David Lampitt, managing director of Group Operations at Sportradar, said: “Betting on Sports is now well known for raising and discussing key issues and developments in and around the sports betting ecosystem at the highest level. We are honoured that SBC Events has called on Betradar and our experts to help bring expertise to these debates and discussions that sit right at the heart of the industry's present and future.”

Snack Media managing director Niall Coen, who is one of the many high quality speakers on the Betting on Affiliates track on day two added: “The sports betting industry is fluid and rapidly evolving, with an ever-growing catalogue of providers aiming to get in front of the eyes of consumers. This is absolutely fascinating to me - and relevant to Snack Media - and with SBC hosting some of the top events within this sector, it's a 'must attend' and a privilege to speak at.”

However, it’s not just the 44-session agenda that has drawn delegates to this year’s event. There is also the world class food and hospitality at the Olympia venue, complete with a lively exhibition and networking floor that is ready and waiting to host 60 of the leading companies in the sports betting space, including 25 first time exhibitors for an SBC-organised event.

To crown the running of eight conference tracks, along with the world class hospitality, unrivalled networking opportunities and lively exhibition area at Olympia, delegates at #boscon2017 will also be treated to networking parties at two of London’s most spectacular venues.

Altitude 360, on the 29 floor with its amazing view of the London skyline, has been selected as the host venue for the official networking party on Wednesday September 13, while Skyloft, another of the amazing Altitude London venues in Millbank Tower, has also been booked by SBC Events for its renowned dinners on the same night. Under the Bridge, Roman Abramovich’s favourite capital city venue, has been confirmed as the venue for the closing party on Thursday September 14.

Nick Nocton, partner at Mishcon de Reya LLP, said: “Betting on Sports is the premier conference focussing on sports betting - the breadth of coverage and quality of content is second to none.”

Francesco Rodano, chief policy officer at Playtech, concluded: "Betting on Sports is the most reputable and best attended industry event for sports betting."
