The Canadian Gaming Summit, a top-notch event in the industry, made a comeback at the Metro Toronto Convention Center from June 13-15. This year’s event was under new management by the folks at SBC, a renowned events and media company.
For this 26th edition, SBC teamed up with the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), the go-to organization that represents operators and suppliers in the Canadian gaming industry. They worked hand in hand to ensure this event was one of the most incredible business opportunities of the year and provided valuable insights into the Canadian gaming market.
Rasmus Sojmark, the CEO & Founder of SBC, saw this as a golden chance to take the event to new heights and create a premier networking hub for all the gaming enthusiasts out there. According to him, the Canadian market is bursting with growth potential.
With the regulation of gambling in Ontario and lessons learned so far, it’s vital for the industry to have meaningful discussions about the future, not just in Ontario, but in other provinces like British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Quebec. And SBC is here to lead the way and facilitate those important conversations.
Paul Burns, the President and CEO of the CGA, was equally thrilled about this collaboration. He believes that SBC stroke the perfect balance between rejuvenating the Canadian Gaming Summit and keeping its primary mission intact—to foster the development of the gaming industry in Canada. It’s a win-win situation!
Now let’s talk about the goodies that awaited attendees at the event. The exhibition floor was a buzzing hub of over 75 companies operating in Canada. From Altenar to Xtremepush, they’ll find all the big players showcasing their offerings. For attendees, this was their chance to explore the latest trends, innovations, and technologies in the gaming industry.
But that’s not all – The event featured a two-day conference with a star-studded lineup of over 150 world-class speakers. The talks were about fascinating discussions on a wide range of topics. Attendees learned from international operators, got insights into the future of gaming in different Canadian provinces, delved into the integration of emerging technologies, explored First Nations partnerships, getting an understanding of payment regulations, wraped their heads around crypto and NFTs, and discovered how affiliates can pave the way for a successful launch in the Canadian market.
And the speaker list was absolutely jam-packed. There were industry experts, operators, affiliates, and suppliers sharing their wisdom. Jai Maw, JD McNamara, Nav Sandhawalia, Paul Burns, Paul Pellizzari, Scott Vanderwel, Shelley White, Tom Mungham, Martha Otton, Tyjondah Kerr—the list goes on and on! These brilliant minds ignited imaginations and provide valuable insights.
With over 2,000 delegates under one roof, including representatives from major regulated operators, game developers, lotteries, bingo operators, responsible gambling specialists, payment providers, marketing agencies, and media. This was a chance to mingle, network, and to connect with the industry’s finest minds.
But it doesn’t stop there. SBC had organized a series of all-inclusive evening networking parties at Toronto’s most luxurious venues. This was where the magic happened—a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere where attendees continued those business discussions with potential partners while having a blast.
It was an unforgettable experience at the Canadian Gaming Summit. SBC and the CGA are pulled out all the stops to make this the best event yet! We can’t wait to see how their next event in 2024 will be.
