As the industry works toward creating a frictionless payment experience that prioritises player safety, SBC Summit Barcelona attendees will gather in the dedicated ‘Payments & Compliance Zone‘ to explore the next generation of such products and discuss the challenges behind the toughening of compliance standards.
The zone is the place to engage with operator Heads of Payments, Responsible Gambling Managers and Compliance Directors, connect with financial institutions and meet safer-gambling specialists. The exhibition floor will be bustling with leading companies such as Adyen, Aurum Solutions, Damex, FinXP, GBG, HooYu, IDnow, Truelayer, TruNarrative and Trustly, among others.
Even though the industry is flourishing, sports betting and igaming professionals still have a lot of opportunities to explore and challenges to overcome. SBC Summit Barcelona will gather some of the most influential industry figures at the dedicated ‘Payments & Compliance Conference stage‘ to discuss pressing issues ranging from the importance of introducing seamless payment solutions to compliance challenges in various markets.
