Canadian Gaming Summit: Providing the Framework for Sports Betting Success

As sports betting professionals seek to strengthen their connection with Canadian bettors, the Canadian Gaming Summit will provide the optimal framework for stakeholders to harness brand loyalty, innovate their offerings and strike lucrative partnerships, all aimed at solidifying their presence in the region. 

The ‘Sports Betting’ track is scheduled to take place on the first core day of the summit, Wednesday 19th June, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. Catering to 3,000 industry stakeholders, discussions will encompass fostering mutually beneficial relationships with sports leagues, strategies to emulate the success of Canadian lotteries, analyzing the profiles of Canadian sports viewers, and exploring the future of esports and daily fantasy sports (DFS). 

Opening the track is the panel titled ‘The Winning Ticket: How Sports Betting Can Emulate Lottery’s Appeal.’ It will explore the strategies sports betting operators can adopt to rival the popularity of traditional Canadian lotteries. Industry experts will examine whether sports betting operators are taking the right approach to emulate the success, brand loyalty and integrity of lotteries and whether a rise in the popularity of sports betting will affect provincial lottery models. 

The session titled ‘It’s All In The Game: Innovations In Live Betting’ will shed light on how live, in-gaming betting, is leading the way for innovation within sports betting. Industry luminaries will discuss the importance of crafting real experiences for bettors, analyze the profiles of potential bettors and explore strategies to fully integrate sports streaming content with sportsbooks. 

The ‘Game Changers: Collaborative Synergy With Sports Leagues’ panel will explore the power of sports league partnerships and how they are redefining the Canadian sports betting landscape. Expert panelists will delve into the intricacies of such partnerships, and discuss how successful partnerships can be leveraged to enhance brand visibility, fan engagement and market presence. The panel will also examine successful case studies, partnership models and ideal strategies for achieving mutually beneficial partnerships. 

Expert speakers set to appear across the track includes Conor Murray (VP Marketing, FanDuel), Nic Sulsky (CCO, Pointsbet), Owen Welsh (VP Gaming, Sports Betting & Innovation, CFL), Martin Lycka (SVP American Regulatory Affairs & Responsible Gambling, Entain), Britt Doll (Global Marketing Director, Rivalry), Tomer Imber (Sr. Director of Sales, Optimove), Iain Montgomery (Founder, Now or Never Ventures), Michael Sandalis (Founder, Wait What), Peter Czegledy (Partner, Aird & Berlis), Anthony Gaud (Founder, Gaud Hammer Gaming Group), Sean Simpson (Sr. VP, IPSOS), Paul Burns (President, CGA), Scott Morasch (Sr. VP, IPSOS), Sebastian Jedrzejewski (Director Regulatory Affairs, US Integrity), Greg Bloom (CEO, BYB Extreme), Steve McAllister (VP, Parleh Media), Troy Ross (President, TRM Public Affairs), Witek Wachinski (VP Strategy & Development, BetMGM), Patrick Harris (Managing Partner, Rubicon Strategy), with more to be announced. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge of the Canadian market through dedicated conference tracks on affiliation, advertising, leadership, land-based operations, payments and compliance. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to attend a pre-day player protection symposium.
