A preview of the SBC summit in Barcelona 2022

Every major industry has its trade shows and events, the iGaming industry being no different. On September 20, 2022, developers, gamers, affiliate marketers, and CEOs will travel to Barcelona for the annual SBC Summit. A celebration of global betting and iGaming, it is a place where the industry’s past, present and future are mapped.

Conference areas

The conference is so large that it must be divided into zones. Each of the discussions and events of these houses concerning the future of its representative sector. The areas this year are:

  • sports betting
  • Casino and online games
  • Payments and compliance
  • Affiliate, marketing and media
  • Emerging technologies, blockchain and metaverse

Over 6,000 delegates are expected to attend the conference, spending their time moving between these areas. There are two hundred companies on the floor, with 360 speakers on six stages.

The most anticipated aspects of the fair are the conferences. Here, people can give their perspective on the industry, discuss its strengths and challenges, and talk about its future. You can also get tips on the many exhibition stands, showcasing the innovation and idea that drives the industry forward.
