SBC has announced that its Betting on Sports event is to relocate to Barcelona in 2020, as part of international expansion plans across the sports betting and gaming industries.
Betting on Sports 2020 will now be held at Fira Barcelona on September 8-11.
The event has been staged at Olympia London since 2017, the venue for the forthcoming show this September, but SBC has recognised stated that “a new venue is required to facilitate the further expansion anticipated in 2020, as the success of this year’s event has seen the Betting on Sports reaching capacity in London”.
Rasmus Sojmark, CEO and founder of SBC, said: “Betting on Sports is known for its commitment to high quality content and delegate experience, as well as providing great business opportunities, which has resulted in a rapidly growing international appeal. As the show continues to expand and evolve, it's important for us to stay true to the core values that define the event.
“We have chosen Barcelona because it has world-class hotels, transport links and attractions to ensure delegates enjoy a great time in the city. Fira Barcelona provides a large and centrally located venue to continue to deliver on this promise.
“Coupled with the growing betting and gaming market in Spain, Barcelona was an easy choice to make.”
