Clarion Gaming’s Sports Betting USA will be held in New York across November 14-15 and has already hit capacity.
USA.- The inaugural edition of Clarion Gaming’s Sports Betting USA (SBUSA) conference, which is being held across November 14-15, in New York, has reached full capacity. The organising team posted the news a week ahead of SBUSA opening as momentum builds, in particular following developments in New Jersey’s challenge to repeal the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA).
Ewa Bakun, Head of Industry Insight & Engagement at Clarion Gaming, believes the huge demand to attend Sports Betting USA is due to a combination of the right content being delivered by the right thought leaders and at the right time.
“In partnership with our stakeholders we identified the importance of sports betting in the United States as well as the dominant mood music and key time lines. Our analysis has proved accurate and we have been able to recruit the most respected thought leaders covering both sport and gaming. In particular, I am delighted to be able to confirm the participation of representatives from leading associations including the Major League Soccer, the NFL and NBA Players Associations, National Lacrosse League and PGA Tour,” Ms Bakun explained.
She added: “Significantly, we have experienced a huge response from consumer media with news organisations including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fox Sports, CNN, NBC, SportsHandle, ESPN, CBS New York and Yahoo Finance all requesting accreditation. This level of interest from many of the world’s best known media channels is a clear sign that Sports Betting USA has the ingredients to be regarded as a seminal event in the history of the betting industry in the United States.”
Sports Betting USA is the first event dedicated exclusively to the development of sports betting in the USA. Produced by the team at Clarion Gaming, Sports Betting USA will explore the legislative path to the repeal of PASPA; demystify misconceptions around sports integrity; outline data monetisation strategies, fan engagement opportunities; new revenue streams for rights holders and present routes to a regulated market for operators wishing to add this vertical to their offer.
Despite SBUSA reaching full capacity, industry observers unable to attend will be able follow Sports Betting USA on Twitter in the lead up to, during and after the conference.
