Politics is one of the topics that is taking the center stage at the Betting on Sports Conference in London.
Last year marked a major upheaval in the global political landscape—from the United Kingdom deciding to leave the European Union to the United States electing businessman Donald Trump as its 45th president—and political betting experts have taken notice.
Despite only being in the Oval Office for seven months, no other president has ever gotten the amount of talk and betting as the 45th leader of the United States, who sees more criticism thrown his way with each passing week. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Betting on Politics is making a return to #Boscon2017.
Matt Shaddick, head of politics at Coral Ladbrokes, will join Joe Lee, head of Trump betting at Paddy Power, and consultant Steve Donoughue, at the Betting on Politics panel, which will be moderated by Ted Menmuir, head of content at SBC Global.
The panel will review the political events that made a mark in 2016, including the UK 2017 Snap Election, France 2017, Brexit negotiations and impacts, as well as the reality of Donald Trump’s US presidency.
The second annual Betting on Sports Conference kicked off at the Olympia in London, with sports betting professionals flying in from all corners of the world to attend over 40 sessions, visit with over 60 exhibitors and mingle with over 1,200 delegates.
