“SBC Summit North America always focused on the future, and how the industry could be innovative despite restrictive regulation.” It’s exciting that sports betting is now legal in the majority of US states as we approach the fifth anniversary since the Supreme Court overturned PASPA. We can start conversations early about iGaming entry and launch strategies, said SBC CEO Rasmus SOJMAR.
Our speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors have proven that innovative approaches, cutting edge products, and unwavering commitment to improvement can help you drive growth. There’s lots for our attendees discover.”
