SBC Reveals Details of Its Debut Canadian Gaming Summit
SBC has announced details of the upcoming Canadian Gaming Summit, which it will be managing for the first time.
The iGaming event will be taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Center on June 13-15. It is the 26th edition of the event, and SBC is working with the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), which represents the country's top operators and suppliers. SBC has said that it will also turn to other Canadian industry stakeholders to ensure that it is truly representative of the Canadian gaming market.
We are excited to have this opportunity to enhance and elevate this renowned event and turn it into a premier networking hub for those who are active or interested in entering the Canadian market. The Canadian market holds a lot of growth potential, and the regulation of gambling in Ontario and the lessons learned so far have made it crucial for the industry to have discussions about the future of this and other Canadian provinces such as British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Quebec. SBC is well-equipped to lead and facilitate these important conversations.
More than 75 companies are set to be present on the exhibition floor, including major names such as Altenar, Aurum Solutions, Fast Track, Finnplay, Kinectify, Mkodo, Paramount Commerce, Platipus Gaming, Smartsoft Gaming, SuzoHapp, and Xtremepush.
There will be a two-day conference with more than 150 speakers covering topics such as the future of the industry outside of Ontario, technology and land-based gaming, First Nations partnerships, regulations, cryptocurrencies, and affiliates.
Amongst the speakers are industry heavyweights such as Jai Maw (CEO, Betting Hero), JD McNamara (Country Director, Canada, Better Collective), Nav Sandhawalia (Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, Niagara Casinos), Paul Burns (President/CEO, Canadian Gaming Association), Paul Pellizzari (Vice President, Global Social Responsibility, Hard Rock International), Scott Vanderwel (CEO, PointsBet Canada), Shelley White (CEO, Responsible Gambling Council), Tom Mungham (CEO & Registrar, Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario), Martha Otton (Executive Director, iGaming Ontario) and Tyjondah Kerr (Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, OLG).
More than 2,000 delegates are expected to attend, and there will also be a number of networking parties at exclusive Toronto venues.
