The SBC Digital Summit, a revolutionary online event, is set to take place on Monday and run through the end of the week. This event is huge for the betting and gambling industry, and this year’s version will feature a fully virtual and interactive experience for the attendees.
Networking experiences will also take place throughout the five days of the event, and hundreds of exhibits will be set up by leading companies in the industry.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced some major changes in the gambling and sports betting industry, and this summit gives key industry leaders a chance to share ideas. This summit was scheduled to take place in Brooklyn, NY, but the pandemic and travel restrictions forced the event to take place online.
There are more than 140 industry executives scheduled to speak over the five days of the summit. Finding a way to navigate through the coronavirus pandemic and bounce back when the industry opens back up will be a main theme throughout the presentations.
One of the best parts of this annual event is the number of exhibits that are set up each year. The SBC Digital Summit will still feature a large number of exhibits, but they will all be offered in a virtual format.
Leading companies from the industry will be able to offer demonstrations as well as highlight and promote any new products set to hit the market.
The summit will also feature a networking space that will allow groups of people to connect. One-on-one networking will also be featured as a part of this summit.
SBC Digital Summit 2020 features one of the most comprehensive and extensive agendas ever created for an online event. The schedule is jam-packed with presentations, while still leaving attendees time to browse through the virtual exhibit hall.
