The Innovation Group and SBC Leaders to connect betting industry’s rising stars with influential senior executives

The Innovation Group is set to be an integral part of this week’s Betting on Sports America – Digital conference and trade show, where it will host a virtual networking roundtable that will bring together a group of influential senior executives with some of the industry’s rising stars.

The exclusive session on December 2 will see members of SBC Leaders, the new association for the global betting and gaming industry’s leading operators, connect with The Innovation Group’s prestigious Emerging Leaders of Gaming 40 Under 40 Class of 2021 honorees.

It will come just days after the launch of SBC Leaders and the announcement of the initial members, and Kelly Kehn, Global Relationships Director for event organizer SBC, believes the roundtable is a perfect first networking session for the group. 

“We couldn’t think of a better opportunity to get the established leaders together with the next generation to share ideas than BOSA-Digital,” said Kehn. “The Innovation Group has been leading the way with their Emerging Leaders of Gaming classes and SBC Leaders is a great group of CEOs and C-level executives, so this is a natural fit.”

As part of its strategic partnership with SBC, The Innovation Group will also offer its expertise to the conference element of BOSA-Digital. Its Senior Vice President of Operations and Data Analytics, Dr Brian Wyman, is set to take part in two sessions on December 2.  

He will join the panel for How Sports Betting Fits Into The Tribal Gaming Ecosystem at 3 pm ET, before moderating The Power of Brand session at 4.30 pm ET.

Michael Soll, President and Founder of The Innovation Group, feels it is important for his firm to be a conduit for research and networking opportunities at BOSA-Digital. 

“The pandemic has forced everyone to re-evaluate all aspects of their businesses,” he said. “It’s great that we still have opportunities to come together as an industry and connect, even if it is in a virtual setting. We look forward to ending the year with BOSA-D and having a chance to look at what lies ahead for all of us.” 

BOSA-Digital, on December 1 & 2, 2020, offers an eight-track conference with a lineup of 130 expert speakers, comprising operators’ senior executives, regulators, affiliates, suppliers, teams, leagues, and advisors.

The event will also feature an interactive product display area where operators will be able to learn about the next generation of products and solutions from international suppliers, talk to suppliers’ expert teams, and experience the products directly through demos. 

There will be further opportunities for delegates to connect and build their network in the burgeoning US betting industry in the virtual networking lounge, the meeting rooms in the virtual networking bar, and at the program of themed networking roundtables.
