Opening Day Agenda at SBC Summit Rio


The opening day of SBC Summit Rio promises to deliver cutting-edge insights to more than 3,000 delegates, unveiling the latest in innovative leadership strategies and the newest trends in marketing across the specialised Leaders and Marketing & Affiliation conference tracks.

The two tracks run simultaneously on March 6th at the inaugural betting and gaming event tailored to senior executives with an interest in the Brazilian market.

The first event following the highly anticipated regulatory changes, takes place at the Windsor Convention & Expo Center in Rio de Janeiro, offering a chance to reflect on the industry’s journey to this moment and to forecast its trajectory in the upcoming year.

The Leaders track gives the floor to executives from top-tier operators including Entain, Parimatch, EstrelaBet, Betsson, Superbet, OpenBet and more.

The track sessions will give prominence to key topics such as enhancing player protection through collaborative efforts with regulators, adopting responsible advertising strategies and identifying crucial factors for mergers and acquisitions in the Brazilian market.

Expert speakers Cecilia López Boronat (Clobet), Andreas Bardun (KTO), Alex Fonseca (Superbet) and Maksym Tsaryk (Parimatch) will provide insights into how global operators can understand local culture and familiarise themselves with media consumption trends and marketing strategies, all while maintaining brand identity.

The Marketing & Affiliation track promises invaluable insights into affiliate and advertising strategies. Delegates can anticipate discussions encompassing the best practices for optimal CRM system implementation and the power of social media marketing.

The track will also host a dedicated Affiliate Leaders panel which will explore the optimal strategies affiliates can utilise, such as educating the local market about new alternative channels and establishing operator and media partnerships, to fortify their market position.
