SBTech CEO to deliver keynote address at leading US industry event that will cover key issues relating to regulated sports betting in the US

London, UK – 6 June 2018

SBTech is delighted to confirm its partnership with the East Coast Gaming Congress 2018, where CEO Richard Carter will be kicking off the congress by giving the keynote address on the opening day of the event at 2.35PM (EST/EDT).

The 22nd Annual East Coast Gaming Congress and NexGen Gaming Forum, to be held June 13 – 14 at Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center here, will mark the 40th anniversary of gaming in Atlantic City with a special panel of experts who will examine the historic milestone of the first legal casinos to open in the United States outside of Nevada.

The conference comes just weeks after the May 14th US Supreme Court’s decision to repeal PASPA and brings together the leading stakeholders in the US gaming and betting industry, who will be discussing how best to create a transparent, safe and responsible environment for Americans to place sports bets.

In his keynote Richard Carter will outline his vision for achieving this and how SBTech will work closely with all stakeholders to help shape “an open and responsible environment for sports betting to flourish in the US, which addresses the needs of consumers, law enforcement, regulators, sports leagues, operators and technology providers”.

SBTech’s landmark agreement with Churchill Downs the day after news of the Supreme Court’s decision came out was the first standout partnership to be announced between a major industry supplier and a leading US gaming and betting operator.

As a member of the American Gaming Association’s sports betting taskforce, SBTech is committed to creating a safe and responsible environment in which Americans can enjoy sports betting while contributing to local economies across the country.
