Betshah – esports will take the limelight for the rest of 2019

Catching up with our event sponsors ahead of Betting on Sport, we sat down with Ioannes Lagos who is the Project Manager at Betshah.

In our discussion, Lagos explained that Esports is the sector we should really be keeping an eye on if weโ€™re looking to appeal to Generation Z, while adding that he โ€˜tips his hatโ€™ to all that promote responsible gambling practices.

What are you looking forward to at Betting on Sports?

Betting on Sports has established itself as the meeting point of the people who really count in our industry. I am really looking forward to some mutually fruitful networking at the highest possible level!

What are you promoting at Betting on Sports?

We are promoting our sportsbook & casino BetShah. We are very excited to be presenting to the world a project created by professionals, who also happen to be players themselves.

What industry innovation will capture the most attention in 2019?

Esports really resonates with Generation Z and I am expecting it to be quite a lot in the limelight in 2019.

Which sports betting operator has impressed you the most in 2019?

Obviously, the answer is the 3 letter word that everyone loves or hates, depending on whose side it is on. VAR, that is.

What sports betting partnership has stood out in the past 12 months?

I am tipping my hat, not to one, but to several operators who promote responsible betting practices. This is the betting world of tomorrow.

If you could attend one sporting event, what would it be?

I will have to go traditional on this and choose the UEFA Champions League Final!

Which parts of the conference agenda have caught your eye?

I am eagerly anticipating (and I am sure I am not the only one) the USA in focus section.
