Capturing the buzz at SBC Summit North America

Season 2 Episode 18

In case you didn’t believe the tweets, LinkedIn posts and dispatches from other platforms that the Meadlowlands Exposition Center was buzzing this week at the SBC Summit, we present the proof in live audio form.

The latest Gaming News Canada Show podcast presented by Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP was an abbreviated edition of the rapid-fire variety. Over the fortysomething minutes, we had guests moving in and out of chairs in a corner of the SBC Sales Lounge (thanks to Bob McFarland and Sue Schneider for letting us set up shop there) as fast and furiously as the Florida Panthers’ forecheck against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series. GeoComply government and public affairs savant John Pappas stopped by to provide his thoughts on the many conversations around igaming and M&A during the Summit’s three days, and also on his company’s acquisition of fellow Vancouver company OneComply to kick start the week. 

Brock University sports management professor Dr. Michael Naraine joined us remotely to discuss the need for third-party research on responsible gambling in Ontario. Regular contributor Kris Abbott from Betano Canada also sat with us for a few minutes, as did Tallysight technology guru Masheed Ahadi to answer a few questions about the San Diego company’s latest partnership deals with Sportradar and Homestand Sports. 

Avenue H Capital founder and FOGNC Benjie Cherniak shuffled his schedule to join us and provide his insight on the hottest topics of the Summit. And we gave the last word this week to Homestand Sports CEO Mark Silver (simply to guarantee we had a lift to Newark International Airport for the flight home. . . . ).

Osler’s Gaming Practice Group has the insight needed to help clients navigate the complex and evolving legal landscape of the gaming industry.

Osler’s position as a trusted advisor in the gaming industry has been built over years of service to operators, suppliers and gaming authorities.
