With excitement dialled up several notches in anticipation of next week’s SBC Summit North America event, SBC’s Cristian Robalino joined Ryan Knup of the Knup Sports Show in looking ahead to the gathering which draws industry leaders from across the US sports betting and igaming sectors. 

According to Knup, the packed programme of conference content, allied to a stellar exhibition line-up, provides a perfect combination of networking, education and entertainment, prompting him to describe the event as a ‘first class’ experience. 

Echoing that view, Robalino noted that the summit hosts ‘one of the best speaker line ups that SBC has assembled’. He drew special attention to Bally’s Corporation Chairman Soo Kim, who will talk to CNBC’s Contessa Brewer, as well as American Gaming Association President and CEO Bill Miller, as bringing a truly C-Level ambience to proceedings. 

The speaker lineup also includes representatives from a host of operators. They include Adi Dhandhania (COO, North America Interactive, Bally’s Corporation); Ed Andrewes (CEO, Resorts Digital Gaming); Manuel Stan (SVP – US, Kindred Group); Matt Sunderland (VP Gaming, BetMGM); Lovell Walker (VP Development, Penn National Gaming); and Adam Nobel (Chief Development Officer, PlayStar Casino).

Robalino added that there’s ‘a little bit of everything at the show’, with its capacity to deliver an enriching experience, both for industry veterans and new incumbents to the space seeking to further their education. 

The Summit begins with a networking party at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan on November 30, before the curtain officially raises on the conference and trade show at Meadowlands on December 1 and 2. 

Delegates can also look forward to the illustrious Sports Betting Hall of Fame ceremony at the MetLife Stadium on December 1 and, on the following evening, the inaugural SBC Awards North America ceremony alongside the closing networking party at The Edison Ballroom in New York City.
