Get Ready for SBC North America 2023

SBC North America 2023 promises to be bigger and better than last year! With more industry leaders, new ideas, and networking opportunities, it’s the perfect place for gambling and iGaming professionals.

Online Gamblers spoke exclusively to Jan Kowalczyk at SBC about why industry professionals should visit SBC’s US event in 2023:

“The SBC Summit North America is the leading conference and tradeshow dedicated to the U.S. and Canada’s high-growth online betting and gaming industry. With a staggering 3500 attendees, 40% of whom are C-suite execs and key decision-makers with regional experience, this event creates the perfect platform for charting the course of the industry’s future.”

As if that wasn’t enough, Jan told us the 2023 event will be bigger than ever. He continued:

“Five conference rooms host a star-studded lineup of speakers, featuring top-level executives from major operators, technology specialists, tribal and commercial casino representatives, investors, regulators, legal experts, marketing strategists, and even professional sports leagues and teams.”

Simply put, there is no reason to skip this event!

Don’t Miss My Speaking Panel on May 10th, 2023

iGaming in New York: What’s Going on in the Latest Opening State?

As an addition, I’m thrilled to announce that I will be moderating a special panel! You’ll find me speaking at SBC North America 2023 on May 10th at 4:40 pm.

Our session, “iGaming in New York: What’s going on in the latest opening state?” will feature expert panelists, including NY State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr., who was a leading figure in legalizing online sports betting in 2022. Now, the senator aims to legalize iGaming (iCasino) in New York in 2023.

Other remarkable panelists in my session include:

  • Lee Terfloth, COO at Out The Gate
  • Katie Peters, Public Policy Senior Vice President at FanDuel
  • George Rover, Managing Partner at Princeton Global Strategies

This is a brief summary of what we will be discussing together:

“With New York *potentially* opening its arms to the world of iGaming – comparisons with Sports Betting are undoubtedly going to be on many minds. Just how big could iGaming be? This session will discuss whether operators err on the side of caution and wait for the tax regulations to work themselves out or whether to be the first one in the room.”

You won’t want to miss this panel, so mark your calendars!

Accommodation and Transportation Tips for SBC North America

SBC NJ Agenda

When attending SBC North America 2023, we recommend staying at a hotel in Manhattan. This is because most networking events in the evening take place in Manhattan. Staying there gives you some time to go back to your hotel and freshen up between the daytime conference and evening networking parties.

For transportation, you can easily use Uber or Lyft to travel between your hotel and the Meadowlands Exposition Center, where the conference is held. These apps are convenient and often more affordable than traditional taxis.

If you prefer public transportation, the best way to get to the Meadowlands Exposition Center from Times Square is by taking the NJ Transit bus #320 from Port Authority Bus Terminal. This bus takes you directly to the venue, making it an easy and cost-effective option.

There will also be shuttle busses available between the conference venue and networking events. It will be two shuttle buses that will transport guests to and from Meadowlands Exposition Centre (355 Plaza Dr, Secaucus, NJ 0709) and the Crowne Plaza Hotel (Hy36
Midtown Manhattan, 320 W 36th St., New York, NY 10018).

SBC Events were so kind to share shuttle schedule with us. See the schedule for Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th of May below.
