Today will see the official opening of a new edition of SBC Summit Latin America, an event that will bring together senior executives from all over the region, sessions with more than 100 prominent speakers and more than 50 exhibiting companies. 

The commercial area will remain open practically all day long, and the conference agenda, which will be held from today, November 2, through Thursday, November 3, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood, Florida, presents four thematic axes: Leaders; Media and Marketing; Regulation and Player Protection; and Payments and Player Protection.

Rasmus Sojmark, CEO and founder of SBC, said: "All eyes are on Latin America at the moment. The region is growing and regulating its market, with profitable opportunities for the online gaming and sports betting industry. We are delighted that some of the brightest minds with a deep understanding of the Latin American landscape are participating in SBC Summit Latin America to shed light on how to do business in this beautiful region with enormous potential."

It is worth mentioning that last night, the organizers offered two Networking spaces as the opening of the event, the first one for women under the name "Global Gaming Women Pre-Happy Hour Networking and Reception", and then the general networking event was held at the Rooftop Live until midnight.
