Concluding a deeply engaging day of discussions on Thursday’s Payments track at the SBC Digital Summit, Payment Expert will be once again bringing together industry leaders to discuss a host of key subjects at the Payments Hour Digital Networking Party. 

The event will run from 3:30 to 4:30pm UK / 10:30 to 11:30am ET and will connect like-minded professionals to analyse how the industry can recover from the current global health pandemic and its role in the road back to economic stability. 

The recently unveiled and highly decorated Payment Expert Advisory Board will play an integral role in the networking event, which will not only provide unrivalled insight into a host of subjects but will also allow an audience question and answer session.

Payment Expert Sales Director Liam Machin and Website Editor Joe Streeter will chair the event alongside SBC’s Global Relationship Director Kelly Kehn

Confirmed speakers so far include Andrea McGeachin (CCO, Neosurf), Paul Bolton (Founder Payment Strategy & ex-GVC Head of Payments), Steven Armstrong (Group Director of AML, William Hill), Warren Russell (Founder and CEO, W2 Global Data), Chris Smart (SVP – Global Gambling and FX Sectors, Emerchantpay), and Isabelle Delisle Group Head of Payments, Pinnacle.

The panel will place an elevated focus on how COVID-19 has impacted the payments sector and the role it has had on the regulatory climate, as well as looking ahead to what innovations are likely to shape the future of the relationship with the igaming sector. 

Liam Machin commented: “Since its formation last year, Payment Expert has built an unrivalled network of connections and it’s fantastic to once again bring them all together to open discussions on the key topics in the industry. 

“COVID-19 has forced innovation within networking and that is something this event very much builds on.” 

Joe Streeter added: “The SBC Digital Summit is set to be an incredibly engaging and groundbreaking event. The Payments track once again gets to the heart of the relationship between sports betting and the payments sector, so to conclude it with this spectacular networking event couldn’t be more fitting.

“It’s never been more important that thought-leaders and the industry as a whole come together to engage in discussions about how the current pandemic is overcome.”

Kelly Kehn concluded: “The SBC Digital Summit has already been a huge success and to round off our much-anticipated Payment track by uniting our network for a discussion on the evolving payment industry, is very exciting.

“Networking parties are very much at the heart of SBC events and I couldn’t be more enthusiastic to see how this transcends into the digital space.”
