Before sports betting were legalized our team identified America as a market with great potential, but it was not until mid of last year when we officially announced the inaugural All American Sports Betting Summit. With the recent legalization of Sports Betting in the USA, we realized that the time to invest for all industry stakeholders is now. Studies have shown that face-to-face sales are up to 34 times more effective than online or mobile forms of sales, and at the All American Sports Betting Summit, you will have the chance to do just that! We trust our event will assist in growing this brand new market.
