Expected to receive around 10 thousand visitors, the event brings together a variety of participant profiles, with emphasis on leaders in the sports betting sector.

Among them are executives from some of the main betting houses operating in Brazil, who project good opportunities to cultivate networking, and stay in touch with the best market practices.

This is the case of Galera.bet, which will participate with a stand from Playtech. CEO Marcos Sabiá highlights the importance of being at the conference and emphasizes the growth of the event and the Brazilian market over the last few years.

“A fair like SiGMA Americas reveals the strength of the Brazilian market. With each passing year, we realize that it has increased in size and relevance. We are talking about an increasingly larger market that has attracted the attention of several operators around the world”, says Marcos Sabiá, CEO of Galera.bet.

“So, for us at Galera.bet, this type of event is very important for the exchange of experiences and access to new technologies around the world, new flows, processes and possibilities. We will be in contact with the best on the planet in relation to this industry.”

Brazil’s current situation favors the sector

Also present at the conference, Hans Schleier, COO of Casa de Apostas, highlights the importance of the event precisely at a time when the Brazilian market is experiencing expectations for the adjustment of regulations in the betting sector in the country.

A week ago, for example, the Prizes and Betting Secretariat of the Ministry of Finance published normative ordinance SPA/MF No. 615, with rules for payment transactions in the betting sector.

“Great professionals from Brazil and Latin America will be present at BiS SiGMA Americas and the exchange of knowledge is very beneficial. Therefore, it can boost the entire sector even further, especially in the midst of this decisive moment we are experiencing here in Brazil. New ordinances must be passed to promote the last necessary adjustments to the regulations”, he points out.
