Sports Betting USA features a diversity of expert panellists covering the broad picture,” Jim Van Stone said. “I’m very excited to be part of it and in common with the rest of the sports betting industry I’m really looking forward to it.”
Delegates will also benefit from two pieces of what organizers Clarion Gaming is describing as ‘Bonus Content’. On November 5, Sports Betting USA will be staging a LIVE US Election Special which will be debated through the lens of the sports betting sector. Taking place at 8am (PST) the Election special will feature 90 minutes of political and gaming insight provided by Brendan Bussmann, Director, Government Affairs – Global Market Advisors, Ayesha Khanna Molino, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs – MGM Resorts International John Pappas, Founder and CEO – Corridor Consulting and Brianne Doura-Schawoh, VP US Policy and Strategic Development – EPIC Risk Management. The following day, invited delegates will be given exclusive access to the internationally acclaimed IMGL Masterclass.
“The team has done an outstanding job in terms of identifying and securing a speaker line-up which will deliver fresh and dynamic insights across a range of topics to engage with an audience comprising the CEOs and CFOs of land-based casinos and sports betting operators, the principals and business development leaders of sports leagues and clubs, media and broadcast heads and strategy directors as well as Senators, state representatives, commissioners and chairs of regulators and legislators,” Rory Credland at Clarion Gaming said.
“Our overarching aim is to get the right people together under one roof: content is central to this objective and I am totally confident that Sports Betting USA (12-13 November) and its sister event Sports Betting Investor Summit 2020 (9 November) will raise the bar and set new standards for digital b2b betting and gaming events,” he added.
