Mims Previews the Betting on Sports America 2020 digital conference

The conference, with more than 2,000 attendees will take place virtually on Tuesday and Wednesday.

As much as I would like to be in the Meadowlands or Las Vegas right now, I am about to attend another virtual conference in 2020 – and this is truly the best thing I can be doing. For the next two days, I am attending sessions presented by Betting on Sports America, also known as the SBC. This conference will have more than 2,000 people attending the networking groups and educational panels.

Most of the major gaming, media, sports betting organizations and influential companies will be in attendance. They will include ESPN, William Hill, Rush Street Gaming, VSIN, Delaware North, Fan Duel, Draft Kings and Kambi. The coverage provided to you is just another facet of what you receive when you follow us here at Bettors Insider.

Some of the notable participants in the educational sessions are Greg Carlin, CEO of Rush Street Gaming; Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill; and Kip Levin, CEO of Fox Bet. Also in attendance will be many people I have had the pleasure of learning from and or working with on sports betting related matters. They include Luisa Woods, Art Manteris, Evan Davis and Jimmy Vaccaro.

One of the sessions I plan to attend will include, “Content Rich: Betting and Media" with Doug Kezirian, host of the Daily Wager at ESPN. Esports and the Mobilization of Gaming in New York are also on my agenda. As a special part of the coverage I am providing, you will get information about NFL Prop Bets and finding the right price.

With sports betting so prevalent now – in advertisements and pre-game analysis – you need to be prepare for the next decade of sports viewership. The way we watch a game is so different than it was 5 years ago. I would be remiss if I did not mention the business and job opportunities that sports betting has to offer.

The #BOSADIGITAL starts Dec. 1 and concludes the following day. You can follow me on Twitter, and I will live tweet comments every hour. A recap of the conference with comments from some of the above-mentioned attendees will appear later this week.
