SBC announces 2023 conference and exhibition calendar
With SBC Summit Latinoamérica rounding off the main 2022 events programme for SBC, the events and media company has revealed details of its 2023 betting and iGaming industry conferences and exhibitions schedule.
SBC hosted a series of successful events in 2022 that further strengthened its reputation as an industry event organiser. The company’s flagship global event, SBC Summit Barcelona, was the highlight of the year, as it broke SBC’s attendance records by gathering 6,000 senior industry executives at Fira Barcelona Montjuïc in September.
SBC will build on this success and stage five enhanced events throughout 2023 in some of the industry’s biggest hubs — Malta, New Jersey, Toronto, Barcelona and Miami. The 2023 events schedule will present businesses with a plethora of opportunities to reach local and global audiences and key decision-makers.
The events are:
CasinoBeats Summit: InterContinental, St Julian’s, Malta (21-23 March 2023)
SBC Summit North America: Meadowlands Exposition Center, New Jersey (9-11 May 2023)
Canadian Gaming Summit: Metro Toronto Convention Center, Toronto (13-15 June 2023)
SBC Summit Barcelona: Fira Barcelona Montjuïc, Barcelona (19-21 September 2023)
SBC Summit Latinoamérica: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Miami, Florida (31 October – 2 November)
A series of industry award shows celebrating the most innovative and successful operators, suppliers, and affiliates in sports betting and iGaming will run alongside the main events. They include:
CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards – Malta (23 March 2023)
SBC Awards North America – New York City (11 May 2023)
SBC Awards – Palau National, Barcelona (21 September 2023)
SBC Awards Latinoamérica – Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Miami, Florida (2 November)
Rasmus Sojmark, SBC’s CEO & founder, said: “2022 was undeniably a fantastic year for SBC. We broke attendance records, grew our workforce to 100 team members and created unforgettable memories for our exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and attendees.
“It feels great to announce the five events for everyone to add to their 2023 calendars. Our ambitions for next year are higher than ever — as usual, we will strive for excellence and do our absolute best to surpass the industry’s expectations by delivering world-class business, knowledge and networking opportunities.”
The programme will open in March with the fifth edition of the CasinoBeats Summit, an event dedicated entirely to the casino industry.
The premier iGaming conference and exhibition will connect operators, game studios, affiliates and other stakeholders in the heart of iGaming, attract an audience of senior industry professionals and display a strong focus on the product side of things by showcasing the next generation of games, technology and platforms on the exhibition floor.
The second 2023 SBC event is SBC Summit North America, a must-attend conference and exhibition for industry stakeholders active in the region. The event will present unrivalled networking and business opportunities and address the emerging trends and growing pains that inevitably come to the surface as the industry evolves.
It is worth noting that SBC will be adding an extra floor to host additional conference rooms, meeting rooms and networking lounges and allow more companies to showcase their sports betting and iGaming technologies, products and services to the event visitors.
The 26th edition of the Canadian Gaming Summit (CGS), Canada’s premier annual conference and exhibition for land-based and iGaming senior executives from across Canada and beyond, will be, for the first time, proudly produced by SBC in collaboration with the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA).
The event, powered by SBC’s formidable reputation among industry professionals and CGA’s long-standing legacy, will continue to support the industry’s growth and deliver the most niche and powerful insights on the Canadian gambling market.
The third edition of the global betting and iGaming show, SBC Summit Barcelona, will return to the Catalan capital in September. Already established as one of the most important business opportunities on the industry calendar, the 2023 edition of the event is set to be bigger and better than ever — the exhibition area will double in size covering a massive 38,000 m2 while the event will last three days and host 10,000 delegates.
After the global event in Barcelona, the attention will turn to the third edition of SBC Summit Latinoamérica. The show will again gather the leadership teams and senior decision-makers in the region’s most prominent or promising markets, including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Uruguay.
