I ran into Evan Davis as I was about to depart for New York and the Bet on Sports America Conference. This is a comprehensive gathering that is focus on sports betting. This conference features seminars and prominent experts on the many aspects of wagering on sports.
Evan Davis serves as Vice President and General Counsel of SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia, PA. In this role, Evan oversees all legal matters including those involving regulatory, labor and employment, construction, intellectual property, real estate, litigation, compliance, risk management and contractual issues for a company with nearly $300 million in annual gaming revenues.
We spoke briefly about the conference and Evan graciously answered the following questions.
What are you speaking on at the Bet on Sports America Conference?
“My panel is on Wednesday. It is taxation, consumer protection & sports integrity – why states should legislate.”
What qualities do you want for your sports ticket writers?
“At SugarHouse Casino, we emphasize four fundamental values: fun, integrity, service, and respect. Our ticket writers exhibit all these qualities; customers who have visited the property following our sportsbook launching in December have received the same great customer service from our ticket writers as they have from the other 1,600 Team Members here at SugarHouse. We're proud to have the best team in the business!”
Follow me on Twitter this week from the conference for photos, information and interviews from attendees.
Tomorrow I will post an interview with Rob Picard from Rush Street Interactive.
