The SBC Awards will return to the stunning Evolution London venue for their eighth edition on 14 December 2021

Designed to recognise and celebrate excellence in the global betting and gaming industry, the SBC Awards 2021 feature a total of 43 categories that offer the opportunity for the best operators, affiliates and suppliers to be honoured for their achievements.

Previous editions of the SBC Awards have proved to be memorable evenings and the 800 guests can again look forward to lavish hospitality and high-level networking opportunities at what will be the final major industry event of 2021.  

Any company working in any sports betting or online casino market anywhere in the world is eligible to enter the awards. There are categories suitable for companies ranging from major international brands to new market entrants, and 2020’s winners included bet365, Better Collective, LeoVegas, Oddspedia, Parimatch, Rabbit Entertainment, Scientific Games, Shape Games, Sportradar, Synot Games, theScore, and Trustly.

Nominations are open until 10 September, with the shortlists and winners to be decided by an independent panel of expert judges. 

Rasmus Sojmark, Founder and CEO of SBC, said: “Companies from across the sports betting and online casino sectors have displayed great innovation, creativity and commitment to customer service over the past 12 months. 

“The SBC Awards 2021 is an opportunity to recognise and reward the international industry’s best operators, affiliates, and platform, content, technology and payments suppliers for their outstanding performance during what has been a very difficult period for everyone.” 

Sojmark added: “It’s exciting to be returning to Evolution London, which staged such a fantastic occasion for the SBC Awards 2019, and we’re looking forward to welcoming 800 people from across the industry for what promises to be another great night of networking and socialising.” 

SBC has also announced two new awards shows for the final quarter of 2021, each focused on one of the regions where the betting and gaming industry is enjoying exceptional growth.
