Betting on Sports America debut receives overwhelming endorsement

SBC’s inaugural US conference Betting on Sports America has been hailed a huge success, with 97.7% of delegates proclaiming they would recommend the event to a colleague.

More than 1,500 delegates attended the event, held last week in New Jersey and New York, with more than 80% coming from North America.

In fact, the total number of registrations reached almost 1,800 when combined with those for ESI New York – also held for the first time – whose delegates enjoyed shared access to the main conference’s welcome party at Jay Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan.

The post event survey which produced this 97.7% seal of approval also found special praise for the trio of top-class party venues across both New Jersey (Meadowlands Racetrack) and New York (40/40 Club and the Sky Room).

The Manhattan Sky Room served as the perfect host for the event’s closing party, featuring a ceremony in which former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, VP Race & Sports Operations of Station Casinos Art Manteris and CEO of Monmouth Park Dennis Drazin were inducted into the Sports Betting Hall of Fame for their contributions to the sports betting industry.

Meanwhile, conference highlights singled out included keynote speeches by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Morten Andersen, who holds the all-time record for most games played in the NFL, as well as the investor-focused ‘Betting on Regulation’ track session featuring MLB National League MVP Ryan Howard and Philadelphia Eagles Hall running back Brian Westbrook.

Richard Seymour, a member of three Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots teams, attended the event as an investment partner for Bet.Works.

Meanwhile, Andersen backed up his speech with a ‘meet and greet’, while Raymond Lesniak – a driving force behind the legal challenge to PASPA – combined an appearance on the ‘Show me the money – payments vs the Wire Act’ session by signing copies of his new book, ‘Beating the odds: The Epic Battle That Brought Legal Sports Betting Across America’.

Feedback as part of the survey is already being used to improve future conferences, starting with this year’s biggest ever Betting on Sports conference, which returns to Olympia London from 17-20 September. Meanwhile, the second Betting on Sports America – once again based at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in New Jersey – has been confirmed for 28-30 April, 2020.
