Reed Exhibitions, the organiser of Global Gaming Expo 2018 (G2E), has published details of its first Sports Betting Symposium taking place in Las Vegas from October 8 – 11.

The event aims to provide gaming professionals with the tools they will need to consider business operations that best capitalise on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the failed federal ban on sports betting. Sessions will cover the business and legislative aspects of sports betting and offer an interactive, guided tour of the G2E expo hall to connect attendees with the top suppliers of sports betting technologies.

Topics for discussion include the full meaning and implications of the SCOTUS decision; how states and tribes are preparing for legal sports betting; the business of sports betting; finding the right partner; how sports betting works in a regulated market; and the lessons learned from early adopters.

Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs for the American Gaming Association, is among a roster of high profile speakers lined up for the gathering. She commented: “As states and sovereign tribal nations consider whether or not to enact legalised sports betting, the Sports Betting Symposium at G2E will offer the world’s foremost experts, business leaders and operational solutions to build a thriving legal market in the United States.”
