The FIFA World Cup and the changing face of the markets for golf, tennis, horse racing, and esports are among the topics set to be scrutinized by some of the industry experts at next week's conference and exhibition. 

One of the most immediate challenges facing sportsbook operators is how to make the most of the opportunities presented by November's World Cup. Betting on Sports Europe features a full-day 'Road to Qatar' track that will examine both promotional strategies for the winter tournament and how to handle the operational issues it will bring. 

Delegates will hear from specialists from many of Europe's betting brands as they discuss how to approach global sport's biggest event. Speakers include Myke Foster (Head of Sportsbook Proposition, Entain), Cian Keating (Head of Football - Risk and Price Management, Paddy Power Betfair), Eoin Ryan (Director of Sportsbook, BetVictor), James McKay (Sportsbook Director, Virgin Bet) and Dan Levy (VP Commercial and Communications, Smarkets).

Furthermore, sportsbooks will be catered for a full day ‘Betting on esports’ track, which will provide insights on topics including the different approaches required for the different types of games, how to cross-sell traditional sports and esports, the development of an integrity ecosystem, and investment opportunities.

The expert speaker line-up features Thomas Rosander (CEO, Luckbox), Rohini Sardana (Director of Business Development, Pinnacle), Ian Smith (Commissioner, Esports Integrity Commission), Temur Mikeladze (Chairman, Crocobet), Gilles Maillet (Director of Sports Integrity, FDJ), Flavien Guillocheau (Founder and CEO, PandaScore), Vlastimil Venclik (CEO, Oddin.gg), Jakob Lund Kristensen (Founder & CRO, Astralis) and Paul Witten (Commercial Director, SIS).
