The SBC Summit Barcelona - Digital 2020 will use an advanced online platform to replicate the three key elements of a successful physical trade show – a high-level conference, an exhibition showcasing the latest products, and numerous networking opportunities.
The 100-booth interactive exhibition – which features zones for sports betting, online casino and gaming, payments and compliance, and affiliates and digital marketing – is intended to help suppliers and operators to connect and continue to do business during this period when physical events are postponed or canceled.
It will allow buyers to view the latest innovations from major suppliers, new game titles from leading studios, and market-leading payments and compliance solutions, all without having to leave their desks. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of product presentations and Q&As to help make connections and engagement straightforward.
