Stewart Darkin, editor of CasinoBeats and organiser of the Summit, said: “The excellent reputation of SBC Global as an organiser of hugely successful events such as Betting on Sports and Betting on Football has given the Summit a very solid foundation but it is the support of the industry that has given this debut event every chance of being one to remember – and the first of many CasinoBeats events.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming so many operators, leading suppliers and some of the sector’s brightest minds to London,” he said.
