SBC’s North American team is set to provide the best opportunity to meet sports betting executives during Global Gaming Expo (G2E) week, when it hosts the Vegas Baby networking party on October 6. 

The Official G2E Sports Betting Party takes place at the stylish Beer Park venue, where 600 senior executives will enjoy views over The Strip and the Bellagio Fountains from the outdoor deck of the rooftop bar, along with entertainment, and complimentary food and drink. 

SBC will also be taking a full part in the G2E trade show, with the team available at booth 4011 to discuss the forthcoming SBC Summit Latinoamérica 2021 and SBC Summit North America 2021 conferences and exhibitions, and the company’s full international 2022 events program.

Additionally, the booth is where Vegas Baby guests can collect the wristbands that give them access to the invite-only party at Beer Park, which is sponsored by Nuvei, GAN Sports, and Intelitics

Bob McFarland, SVP Sales and Commercial Americas at SBC, said: “What better way to get back to the business of in-person events than with a networking party at one of the best rooftop bars in Las Vegas? 

“We’re really excited to welcome a who’s who of the US sports betting industry to the party, with a guest list that includes executives from BetMGM, DraftKings, Caesars Entertainment, WynnBET, Aristocrat, Bally’s, Penn National Gaming, Betcris, Sportradar, Fubo Gaming, Rush Street Interactive, Playtech, Kindred Group, the American Gaming Association, Visa, NASCAR, the NCAA, and many more.” 

McFarland added: “We’re also looking forward to presenting our own events to G2E attendees and showcasing the great business opportunities that we’ll have in Miami and New Jersey later in the year.”

SBC Summit Latinoamérica 2021 at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami on October 27 – 28 is the year’s best opportunity to learn about the potential of sports betting, igaming and land-based casino markets across Latin America.
