Schedule for the First Brazilian iGaming Summit

All the details for holding the first Brazilian iGaming Summit (BiS) 2021 have already been agreed and the official schedule for December 1st and 2nd was fully closed by the organization. Therefore, the panels and lectures of what promises to be the biggest betting event in the history of Brazil, will have highly regarded names on the world stage.

BiS 2021 will take place at Espaço Boulevard JK, International Plaza Building, in São Paulo, and the night of the first day will have surprises, with the winners at the first ceremony specific to the iGaming sector in Brazil, the Brazilian iGaming Awards.

The primary objective for this first edition of the Brazilian iGaming Summit is to combine the presence of influential people in the corporate and political segments with a new industry, debating and sharing information on subjects little explored in previous betting conventions, lotteries and iGaming.

In addition to connecting people from all over the planet and allowing multiple opportunities for interested players to participate, the BiS 2021 will have a hybrid format, to maximize the scope of action, not restricted to the physical environment.

The event will provide a framework designed for the audience’s success and experience, facilitating powerful networking for all involved. For all that, the list of exhibitors includes world-renowned players.

Updated schedule for BiS 2021

Aiming to further enhance the two days of intense programming, debate and exhibition in São Paulo, the organization created a rich and varied agenda, bringing together professionals with deep experience and knowledge of the Brazilian and international markets.
