It has been truly an exciting 2017 for the sports betting industry, which – like in the previous years – has its fair share of ups and downs.
In the U.S., the Supreme Court will start hearing New Jersey’s petition to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 and make sports betting legal in the country.
Another industry tease this year was the almost merger of daily fantasy sports giants DraftKings and FanDuel, along with other reports of company consolidations.
To cap the exciting year on a positive note, SBC will once again recognize the cream of the crop in the sports betting industry at the SBC Awards, held on Dec. 5, at The Artillery Garden in central London.
This year’s SBC awards will be hosted by former Sky Sports presenter Matt Lorenzo and Luis Garcia, a Champions League winner with Liverpool.
One of the highlights of the SBC awards is the Operator/Affiliate Awards, whose winner is determined by the attendees of this year’s Betting on Football and Betting on Sports conferences.
Meanwhile, a panel of experts will determine the winner for the Supplier Awards.
This judging panel features the CEOs from Bets10, Better Collective, OLBG, Superscommesse, Betaland, BetBright, BetCris, FavBet, Fortuna, Mr Green, Mybet, PariMatch, Pinnacle, SNAI, Spiffx, Sports Interaction, Star Sports Bet, TopBetta, BetConstruct, Golden Race, OPTIMA and Don Best.
Since SBC is all about celebration, the theme for this year’s SBC award is Christmas. Delegates will be treated to a sparkling wine and cocktail reception, an exclusive three-course seated dinner, Christmas themed snacks, and music courtesy of a renowned London DJ.
“Attendees can expect an amazing night at the SBC Awards with the champagne flowing on arrival at the welcome reception, free bar all night, superb three course meal and spectacular entertainment,” Paul Mills, chief operating officer at SBC, said.
