The time and place for the highly anticipated inaugural Betting on Sports America event has finally been announced. New Jersey’s Meadowlands Exposition Center will host the event from April 23 to 25, 2019. Among the organizers are SBC events, Hard Rock International and the Mississippi Gaming Commission.
NJ Sports Betting - One Step Ahead
New Jersey sports betting has rightfully earned its name as the leader in this newly arisen situation the US has found itself in. While other states are still testing the waters, New Jersey dove headfirst and is already collecting the riches.
The opening of two colossal casinos, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Ocean Resort Casino, has helped give the market an extra push. Over past six months the state has seen a thriving market, where NJ sportsbooks brought in nearly $684 million just in September and October.
It only makes sense now for the state to host the biggest ever sports betting event on our continent. You can keep tabs on the event by following the hashtag #bosamerica.
Premiere Roster Taking Shape At BOS America Event
The guest list for the event is shaping up to be a truly premiere roster. Some of the names include Hard Rock, Kindred, Missouri Lottery, Mississippi Gaming Commission, Foxwoods, Webis Holdings and National Council on Problem Gambling. All in all, we’re expecting to see at least 1,500 delegates, 60 exhibitors and 175 speakers, all from the top NJ sportsbooks, casinos and institutions in the industry.
Meadowlands is a fitting venue for the BOS America event, with its 61,000 sq. feet exhibition space. Each company will be sending its own delegates and we’ve gotten a scoop of some of the names we can expect: Kresimir Spajic (Hard Rock International,) May Scheve (Missouri Lottery), Allen Godfrey (Mississippi Gaming Commission,) Andrew Winchell (Chief of Staff to New York State Senator,) Daniel Wallach (Wallach Legal LLC,) Manuel Stan (Kindred Group) and Seth Young (PointsBet).
The seven conferences to take place at Meadowlands aren’t the only things to look forward to during this event. There will also be an opening party near Times Square and an even bigger closing-day party in Manhattan.
Keith Whyte with NCPG will be one of the speakers at the event and has offered to share his take on it. In his words, this will be an excellent opportunity to explore the latest trends, products, perhaps even start up exciting new partnerships, but most of all - to advocate for regulative actions towards more responsible gambling.
Another lecture to look forward to is by Ed Comins, managing director for Webis Holdings. He will most likely be taking notice of the new environment the industry has found itself in and what actions industry leaders need to take to fit in it.
