Press Release: SBC and AGA team up for U.S. Betting Industry Overview: Plans, Progress & Partnerships webinar

The Betting on Sports webinar series resumes on Wednesday October 2 when SBC Americas presents ‘U.S. Betting Industry Overview: Plans, Progress & Partnerships’, an exclusive discussion with the American Gaming Association (AGA).

Ahead of the G2E Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas (October 14-17 2019), the AGA’s Senior Director of Government Relationships, Jessica Feil, will present an in-depth analysis of the U.S. sports betting regulatory landscape and macro-dynamics.

In addition to Feil’s invaluable insights, the audience will learn more about the AGA’s work in the sector when its Senior Director of Member Services Jonathan Michaels provides an update on the association’s corporate development as it seeks to represent a diverse cast of stakeholders operating within U.S. betting

SBC’s Director of Marketing and Communications for North America Kevin Smith said the timing for the webinar is perfect, as the industry has been growing at breakneck speed since the repeal of PASPA and will continue to do so.

“We saw a tremendous amount of interest from the U.S. In Focus track at our Betting on Sports conference in London last week,” he said.

“There is so much happening it can be difficult to keep up. This will be a great opportunity for industry leaders to get an overview of the latest developments in the United States as everyone prepares to ascend on Las Vegas for G2E in a few weeks.”

The webinar will also include an overview of the new features of the Global Gaming Expo and a sneak peak of its Sports Betting Symposium.
