Around 15,000 people from all corners of the industry are set to gather at the highly anticipated SBC Summit Barcelona to discuss the latest developments in sports betting and iGaming across global markets, as well as the technological advancements that are redefining the industry.

The global betting and iGaming event is scheduled to take place at the Fira de Barcelona Montjuïc from September 19th to 21st.

The summit will offer attendees access to an 80-hour conference schedule, an extensive exhibition space showcasing the latest products from over 350 brands, and countless networking opportunities.

This year, SBC has doubled the size of its exhibition space to accommodate exhibitor demand, with the area now spanning an impressive 38,000 square meters.

With 350 global brands exhibiting, attendees will be able to familiarize themselves and engage with a multitude of the hottest gaming releases, technologies and the latest products and services available.

To ensure smooth navigation during the summit, the space was divided into five distinct zones, each dedicated to a specific industry sector:

  • Sports Betting;
  • Casino and iGaming;
  • Payments and Compliance;
  • Affiliates, Media and Marketing;
  • Emerging Technology.

As an addition to this year’s exhibit space, attendees will have the opportunity to attend industry “meet-ups.”

Participants can choose to attend several meetups, including the Global Gaming Women’s Café, Meet the Affiliates, and the Payments Experts meetup.

In addition, there will be specific meetings by region, such as those focused on the USA and Canada, Latin America and Brazil, Africa, Germany, Italy and Spain.
