Rasmus Sojmark, Founder and CEO of SBC, said: “The Latin American betting and gaming industry has huge growth potential, but the information needed to understand the opportunities in the individual markets can be difficult to access. We set out to change that by putting together the strongest possible speaker lineup for the conference element of SBC Summit Latinoamérica. With leading experts ready to share their on-the-ground knowledge of the changing conditions in Latin American markets, all delegates can expect to learn something of real value to their businesses.”
Delegates attending SBC Summit Latinoamérica can also take in an exhibition featuring major suppliers and a full program of networking events, including evening parties sponsored by Betcris, Delasport, and Evolution, and the inaugural SBC Awards Latinoamérica ceremony.
