“The goal is to leverage the momentum we gained last year when we gathered the key operators, affiliates, suppliers, regulators, and media from the North American region,” said SBC CEO and Founder Rasmus Sojmark in a statement. “We anticipate a 66% surge in delegate numbers and are focused on attracting both industry newcomers and those who missed out on the opportunity to attend last year. The early numbers are promising and the exhibition floor is approaching full capacity, even though we had added 15 extra booths this year to meet the demand.”

The Summit again will feature Player Protection Symposium and Compliance & Leadership events May 7 in New York City. New this year on May 7 is Earnings+More: Capital Markets Forum, organized in collaboration with +More Media.

Exhibitors that have currently signed up include gaming providers White Hat Gaming and Relax Gaming; and affiliates Better Collective, MediaTroopers, Spotlight Sports Group, and KeyAffiliates. Payment providers include Trustly, PayNearMe, TransUnion, PXP Financial, and PayBrokers. Operator Betsson, risk-management-platform Kinectify, real-time-content and data-provider SportsDataIO, and hosting provider Internet Vikings are also slated to appear.

The conference will feature five stages with more than 300 speakers conversing about tracks including Leaders, Sports Betting, iGaming, Affiliates & Marketing, Payments & Tech, and Compliance & Regulation.
