Conference Summary

Join us in New York City as we host our debut conference as the Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association!

While 2018 marked the year the nation awoke to the possibilities of legalized sports betting, 2019 marks the year where execution will allow first-movers to showcase their foresight. Early returns in newly legalized states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania have shown immense promise, and we will analyze how companies are shifting, sharing & expanding their resources to tackle the new possibilities. While regional brands in the Northeast can focus on legalized sports betting, many national brands need to take a different approach as legalized sports betting will not proliferate across the country overnight. Brands like NBC Sports, theScore and Buffalo Wild Wings are each taking unique approaches, and we will discuss the applicability of free-to-play games compared with their real-money counterparts. Many insiders describe the United States as 50 different countries when it comes to the topic of sports betting, and a different approach is required each jurisdiction. Nonetheless, the possibilities are as exciting as ever!
