he ESI Digital Summer LatAm conference, scheduled for Thursday, will address the sports gambling industry bringing together operators from across the globe to discuss market changes in the space as they pertain to the eSports segment. Betcris, one of the leading sports gambling and online gaming operator for Latin America, will participate in the conference, represented by the company’s Head of Business Development, Fernando Garita.
Often referred to as the “gold rush” of the sports gambling market, Latin America is poised to play an essential role in the evolution of the industry. The world of eSports, in particular, is growing exponentially, gaining substantial exposure worldwide with tournaments in popular games like CS: GO and Fortnite, and creating a huge impact on that growth. Garita is scheduled to appear in the panel discussion on eSports betting in Latin America, which will be held from 17:30 to 18:15 (UTC-3) on Thursday, August 20.
The Latin American eSports gambling panel has been created to focus specifically on the opportunities and challenges eSports are bringing to the sports gambling industry. With different countries establishing their own guidelines and regulations for sports gambling, it is essential that operators understand the different legal and regulatory frameworks, and Garita’s expertise on the subject is set to be of benefit to all summit participants.
The five-day summit, which covers North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East – each with its own day of discussions, is organized by Esports Insider (ESI), a company specializing in the distribution of eSports news, as well as the creation of events dedicated to the industry. Referring to the Latin America day, ESI says: “In association with Live Media, join us for a day of content in English and Spanish. For one of the fastest-growing regions in the industry, topics will include mobile esports, CS:GO’s huge presence and fanbase in Brazil, and a select number of ESI Brand Showcases featuring case studies of local sponsorships done the right way.”
Along with Garita, CEO Steven Salz of Rivalry and Mobadoo Sales Director Alejandro Kowalski have been confirmed as speakers for the panel. In addition, Latam Media Group’s eSports manager, Pablo Monti, will participate and also moderate the gathering.
