The SBC Summit Barcelona conference and trade show is set to be one of 2021’s biggest business opportunities for the international betting and igaming industry, with scores of major suppliers already confirmed as exhibiting. 

SBC’s flagship event at Fira de Barcelona on 21-24 September will provide a much-needed opportunity for sportsbook, online casino, safer gambling, and payments and compliance suppliers to showcase their latest innovations to a global audience.

Equally importantly, it offers the chance for both vendors and decision makers from operators to take a break from Zoom calls and meet in person, both in the exhibition hall and during the accompanying programme of evening networking events. 

Delegates attending what will be the largest industry gathering for 18 months will find the venue divided into zones, each with its own theme, exhibition area, conference stage and agenda. 

The Sports Betting Zone is where attendees will have the chance to hear the insights of senior executives from major international sportsbook operators and to view the next generation of products developed for those businesses. 

Among the confirmed exhibitors in the Sports Betting Zone are Altenar, Betby, BetConstruct, Delasport, Golden Race, Jacktime, Metric Gaming, mkodo, Pinnacle Solution, SofaScore, Sportradar, Sporting Solutions, Stats Perform, and XtremePush

Adjacent to it will be the Casino & Gaming Zone, which will host the igaming conference tracks and provide the year’s best opportunity to view all the most innovative and creative new games and products from platform providers, studios and content aggregators.

Exhibitors are set to include Amigo Gaming, Digitain, Endorphina, HXRO, Microgame, Omega Systems, Pin Projekt, Platipus Gaming, Slotegrator, SoftGamings, Synot Games, and Yggdrasil. 

The Payments & Compliance Zone will be the place to learn how to handle planned changes to regulation in markets around the world, about the latest systems developed by payments service providers, and more about the role of cryptocurrencies in the gambling industry. 

Operators’ payments and compliance leaders will also be able to meet exhibitors including 1account, Aurum Solutions, Emerchantpay, IDnow, Inpay, TruNarrative, Trustly, and W2.

Player acquisition will be the focus of the Affiliate, Marketing and Media Zone, where the conference content will reveal valuable information about how to utilise channels such as streaming, social media and SEO more effectively. 

It will also be home to the Affiliate Leaders Lounge, which will host representatives from both major established affiliates and the sector’s rising stars, and an exhibition that features bet365, Betsson, BetWinner, Clever Advertising, Intertops, and Juicy Stakes, among many others. 

Additionally, the conference will have a dedicated Safer Gambling Stage and a content track focused on the development of better player protection strategies and procedures. Operators’ responsible gambling teams will also have the opportunity to meet leading specialists, such as EPIC Risk Management and YGAM.

Between them, the zones will host one of the most comprehensive conference agendas the gambling industry has seen, complete with a speaker line-up packed with 350 influential senior executives. 

Rasmus Sojmark, Founder and CEO of SBC said: “SBC Summit Barcelona will in effect be multiple targeted conferences and exhibitions, with each zone focused on one of the key sectors within the global gambling industry.  

“Delegates from all verticals will have access to valuable conference insights and the chance to see the latest products that are directly relevant to their job roles, as well as an opportunity to exchange ideas with and learn from their contemporaries in different areas of the industry.”

The final crucial element of the SBC Summit Barcelona experience is the networking programme. In addition to facilities for meetings in the venue, there will be a number of evening parties at some of the city’s most stylish venues, which will provide a chance to make contacts and talk business in informal settings.
