One day after the second edition of the Brazilian iGaming Summit (BiS) ended its central two-day event last week, the same organizers held the first edition of the iGaming-focused, exclusive event Affiliates Latam on Thursday, which they called a "success" in terms of attendance numbers, also at Espaço Boulevard JK in Brazil's capital city São Paulo.
Organizers Jericho Eventos attributed the positive results of the debut to the "great participation" of the sports betting, eSports, bingos, and lotteries sectors, which filled the auditorium and the space destined for the stands throughout the day. It was attended by celebrities such as the former football player of the Brazilian national team, Zico, who participated in the opening lecture along with the president of the event, Alessandro Valente. Zico spoke about his sport and social inclusion project for athletes with physical disabilities, and said he believes in the regulation of games and casinos in Brazil: “After all, it is fun and not an addiction.”
Soon after, other recognized names in the sector, such as Newton Cardoso (Federal Deputy), Léo de Biase of BBL (Bad Boy Leeroy), Newton Fleury Jr (Cartola FC), Florencia Brancato (Pinnacle), Yudi Osugui (Super Affiliates) and the youtuber Fabio Bampi “Nettuno” participated in lectures and panels on various topics, at different times, encouraging debate and new ideas for the iGaming market.
Valente gave the closing speech, emphasizing that it is necessary to believe in Brazil in terms of betting and affiliation, due to the great potential of the country. He also thanked everyone for their participation and collaboration, especially the sponsors, companies and his team.
