The Payments & Compliance Zone at SBC Summit Barcelona – Digital is set to bring together betting & gaming operators, organisations driving up safer gambling standards, and payments solutions companies for four days of learning, in-depth discussions and connection.  

The conference content for the Payments & Compliance Zone includes the Payment Expert track sponsored by Neosurf on 8 September, the opening day of the event. Its sessions will tackle many of the key problems faced by operators and their payments partners, as well as examine some of the ways in which new technology can improve compliance procedures.

Speakers include Tim Heath (CEO & Founder, Coingaming), Isabelle Delisle (Head of Payments, Pinnacle), Lior Segal (Former Director of Payments, The Stars Group), Steven Armstrong (Group Director of AML, William Hill), Lee Terfloth (Vice President of Online Gaming Product, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino) and David Foster (Head of Regulatory Affairs, GVC Group).

On 11 September, the zone hosts the Safer Gambling track sponsored by EPIC Risk Management. It will see operators and specialists in combating problem gambling working together to address an issue that is arguably the biggest long-term challenge threatening the industry. 

Experts set to share their ideas on how to improve player safety include Daniela Johansson (Chief Responsibility Officer and Deputy CEO, Paf), Martin Lycka (Director of Regulatory Affairs, GVC Group), Jon Duffy (SVP, Corporate Assurance & Regulatory Affairs, Genting UK), Ben Wright (Head of Safer Gambling, Sky Betting & Gaming) and Paul Buck (CEO, EPIC Risk Management).

There is lots to interest delegates between those two conference tracks, including a programme of compliance workshops on 9 September, which will give delegates the chance to improve their skills and learn about some important new developments. 

The event will also provide a straightforward and, in the current absence of live trade shows, much-needed way for payment service providers, fintech companies, compliance specialists, safer gambling organisations and operators to connect and talk business. The schedule includes a series of themed networking roundtables, which will bring together people with shared interests in specific technologies or regional markets. 

Additionally, the Payments & Compliance Zone features a virtual expo hall which, with the physical editions of major international trade shows unlikely to be staged until March 2021 at the earliest, provides the very best current opportunity to discover the latest innovations in the sector.

Companies and charities taking advantage of the interactive booths to display their products and services include Aurum Solutions, Dimoco, EPIC Risk Management, Finnplay, Inpay, KPMG, Neosurf, W2 Global and YGAM

Rasmus Sojmark, CEO and Founder of SBC, said: “The Payments & Compliance Zone will put a spotlight on the crucial relationship between betting & gaming operators and payments providers, as well as on the equally important area of safer gambling provision.

“With a tailored agenda and a speaker roster that includes representatives from many of the world’s largest operators, payments and compliance specialists, and organisations doing great work on improving player safety, the conference promises to be a valuable experience for all attendees. As will the very welcome opportunity to make some new contacts and talk business.”
