Smile-Expo will host its first online conference this week, titled ‘Betting in the face of Covid-19′.

Operators will have the opportunity to discover how they can adapt to the current global situation. They will be joined by sports association members, as well as gambling suppliers.

The event will take place on Friday, 17th April at 11:00 Central European Time (10:00 GMT).

A number of industry speakers to be present 

A number of iGaming experts will be present and sharing more about their areas of expertise. Some of these names present include:

  • Harry Lang, Founder of Brand Architects;
  • Ian Smith, Integrity Commissioner at Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC);
  • Mark O’Sullivan, Assistant Manager at KPMG Malta;
  • Martin Wachter, CEO & founder of Golden Race;
  • Ivan Alonso, General Manager at Club Nacional de Football (Uruguay).

Some of the topics that will be discussed include profiting from virtual sports, along with esports. Opportunities for sportsbooks to make money from fantasy sports will also be talked about.

Benefits of the online conferences 

While the obvious drawback is not being able to meet in person, having a digital conference poses numerous plus points.

The clear one to begin with is that it’s impossible to catch an infection over the internet. Aside from that, all attendees will be able to network in a general chat room.

Attendees will also gain access to content that will be useful going forward. All participants will receive emails with speakers’ presentations and video recordings.

Ticket information 

Tickets are available online and are discounted by 50% until 16th April 2020. The price until Thursday is €50, after which it rises to €100.
