SBC Summit Barcelona 2023
Emerging at the earliest days of internet technology and growing into huge industries, iGaming and sports betting are verticals that are now at the forefront of technology. While land-based sports betting shops and gambling venues are still operating, their online counterparts have grown significantly in recent times, largely due to trends in the digitalization of services and the fact that they provide much easier and more convenient access to gambling entertainment. During the pandemic, when land-based establishments were forced to keep their doors closed and suffered losses, the iGaming and online betting markets flourished due to the influx of people wishing to bet and gamble. However, online business is facing new challenges due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. SBC Summit 2022 will discuss all important issues affecting the development of the industry in the current unstable economic conditions.
