Industry Leaders Voice Strong Backing for SBC Summit Americas in Fort Lauderdale

Stakeholders in the betting and gaming sector, including those in the payments and fintech space, have reacted positively to the announcement of the SBC Summit Americas.

Set to take place in Fort Lauderdale on 13-15 May, 2025, the summit is poised to offer broader networking opportunities and drive forward collaboration within the industry.

The reimagined event aims to increase connectivity across North, Central, and South America, forming a single, cohesive platform for the gaming industry throughout the region.

Joseph Martin, CEO of Kinectify, a company specialising in anti-money laundering and compliance software, who has previously exhibited at SBC Summit North America, backed the decision, expressing confidence in SBC’s industry-centric ethos.

“SBC always puts on great events. They have deep connections within our industry and prioritise the right elements to optimise our experience. I’m excited about this new show covering both North and South America. 

“Gaming companies operating in multiple markets across the two continents now have a single event focused on the entire Americas region. I look forward to another outstanding SBC event experience in Fort Lauderdale.”

Betting and gaming firms active across both North and South America will have a range of financial considerations to factor in when crafting their strategies. These include anti-money laundering (AML), fraud prevention, and local payments preferences, like the popularity of Pix in Brazil.

Representing the views of North America’s market leader operator, FanDuel, company CEO Amy Howe commented on the growth that SBC Summit North America had previously achieved under SBC’s leadership. 

“The SBC North American Summit has become a mark-the-calendar industry event each spring. The conference seems to grow each year and brings together an impressive array of regulators, legislators, operators and technologists that help power the industry’s growth.” 

The CEO also confirmed that the “company is delighted to participate in the conference each year and looks forward to 2025 in Florida”.

Meanwhile, Marina Bogard, Managing Director for North America at Betsson, emphasised that the event caters to companies with diverse geographic interests. “SBC’s decision to launch SBC Summit Americas and host the event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, provides a convenient opportunity for businesses with diverse market strategies to connect with both North American and Latin American leads under one roof.” 

Bogard underscored the significance of this unified approach, which allows Betsson to efficiently engage with partners across diverse regions. “As you know, Betsson is a global company, and both regions remain highly significant for our expansion strategies,” she said.“It is great to be able to align our efforts and meet all our partners across the Americas without having to attend multiple conferences.”
