The conference agenda for the second day of SBC Summit Rio is set to provide 3,000 delegates with the latest regulatory strategies and cutting-edge industry innovations through the dedicated ‘Integrity & Compliance’ and ‘Innovation’ conference tracks. 

The two tracks will run on 7th March during the inaugural betting and gaming event, designed specifically for senior executives interested in the Brazilian market. Hosted at the Windsor Convention & Expo Center in Rio de Janeiro, the Brazil-focused summit will mark the first industry event to take place following Brazil’s highly anticipated regulatory changes. The summit will serve as the ideal platform to discuss key talking points, reflect on the industry’s journey, and hypothesize on its future. 

The ‘Integrity & Compliance’ track will provide delegates the opportunity to garner invaluable insights from key industry leaders on Brazil’s rapidly evolving regulatory and compliance landscape. Delegates can expect robust discussions on a variety of subjects such as the clash between state and federal sports betting licenses and optimal strategies to craft successful sports organization partnerships. 

The track will also feature a dedicated ‘Integrity Trilogy’, hosted by Magnho José (Director, BNL Data), which will explore topics encompassing how brands can utilize technology to counter betting-related corruption, advancements in diversity, equity, and inclusivity frameworks, and more. 

The ‘Crafting the Perfect Partnership: Success Stories in Sports’, panel will discuss the intricacies of operator-sports organization partnerships. It will feature expert speakers Bruno Guilherme (CEO, Viradabet), Ricardo Padoveze (Head of Sponsorship, Clube de Regatas do Flamengo), Guilherme Guimarães (Founding Partner, Ativa Esporte), Renan Cavalcanti (CMO, Estrelabet), and moderator Fellipe Drommond (CEO, TFW Marketing e Comunicação), as they explore the scope of partnership options available to operators, delve into co-branding and collaborative partnerships, and reflect on the common mistakes and successes witnessed in the industry. 

The panel titled ‘The Reality of Municipal Lotteries in Brazi’, will seek to explore the marketing challenges associated with the rise of new state and municipal lotteries across Brazil. It will feature industry experts Ricardo Amado Costa (Vice Presidente, Febralot) and Eduarda Lopes do Espírito Santo (CEO, Intralot do Brasil / SAGA BGI). 

The ‘Innovation’ track promises delegates an in-depth analysis of the innovative technologies and strategies pushing the industry forward. Delegates can anticipate discussions surrounding the delicate balance between innovation and regulation in shaping the customer experience, the critical interplay between operators and payment providers when entering new markets, and exploring strategies in selecting the most suitable innovative technology to enhance business operations.

The panel titled ‘Frontliners Do it Better! Discover the Esports Scene in Brazil’, will feature expert speakers Pedro Schmidt (Presidente, Vivo Keyd Stars), Carlos Gama (Vice-Presidente de Games e Esports, ASSESPRO – RJ), Bruno Goes dos Santos (Nobru) (Streamer & Digital Influencer, Co-Founder, Fluxo) and panel moderator Trev Keane (Managing Director/Group Commercial Director, EPIC Global). Together they will explore the esports phenomenon in Brazil, analyze the recent investment from international brands, discuss local franchises, and look at the future of esports in Brazil. 

The panel ‘AI Revolutionizing the Future of Betting Products?’, will explore the innovative technology that is set to shape the future of the industry. Expert speakers João Sobreira (Co-Founder, Tipspace), Mateo Lenoble (Regional Sales Director LATAM, Sportradar), and Hugo Llanos (Americas Regional Director, Altenar), will explore technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI), discuss key strategies in selecting the right innovative technology to aid specific business needs, and how to incorporate technology that is true to a brand’s specific image and target audience.
