National Hockey League (NHL) Commissioner Gary Bettman has been signed up to kick off the Sports Betting Symposium (SBS) program on Wednesday, October 16, at this year’s Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas. 

Bettman will engage in a wide-ranging discussion on the convergence of sports and betting with industry leaders Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US; Greg Carlin, co-founder and CEO of Rush Street Gaming; and Matt King, CEO of FanDuel.

Now in its second year, the Sports Betting Symposium is slated to showcase an influential lineup of speakers including gaming operators, suppliers, leagues, teams, regulators, broadcasters, financial institutions and sports agencies.

In what has been described as a must-attend session – titled Executive Viewpoints: NHL Commissioner Bettman and Leading Gaming Executives Discuss New Business Partnerships – Bettman and leading gaming executives will share their viewpoints on the evolving sports-gaming relationship and the current and future value of new business partnerships.

 “We are grateful for the opportunity to hear from Commissioner Bettman and leading industry executives during this momentous time for the sports and gaming industries,” said American Gaming Association President and CEO Bill Miller. “With so many new partnerships between leagues, teams and gaming entities, it will be invaluable to hear the insights of our converging industries represented on a single stage.”
