The SBC Summit North America sports betting conference is set to draw top industry executives from across North America and Canada. Speakers include BetMGM’s Matt Prevost and Brian Bennett, Betfred USA Sports’ Sharon Otterman, Caesars Entertainment’s Chantal Cipriano, PoinsBet Canada’s Scott Vanderwell, and 888 Holdings’ Adi Dhandhania.

The conference was attended by ESPN’s David Purdum, who also discussed a new publicity stunt by the Texas-based mattress company called Mattress Mack. McIngvale had placed a $4 million bet that the Houston Astros would win the World Series. In addition, SBC’s own CEO, Chris Chung, will present a panel on the new industry developments and challenges facing the sports betting industry.
