SBC’s flagship worldwide event, SBC Summit, will relocate to Lisbon in 2024. The decision is seen as a strategic move to accommodate the demands of the industry’s fastest-growing gathering. SBC Summit Lisbon 2024
The next event, previously known as SBC Summit Barcelona, will now be known as SBC Summit 2024 since the branding has evolved to better represent the event’s global scope.
SBC Summit is an international gathering that crosses borders, welcoming people from all over the world and from a variety of industry sectors.
The event, which will take place over three days from September 24-26, 2024 at Feira Internacional de Lisboa (FIL), is expected to occupy more than 100,000 square meters of exhibition and conference space, which is more than double the size of the 2023 venue, which was 38,000 square meters. With this increased capacity, SBC will be able to welcome 600 exhibitors, nearly tripling the number that will be present at the 2023 edition.
The SBC Summit will now be able to host 25,000 guests at FIL due to the increased venue capacity. Operators, affiliates, sportsbook and casino suppliers, regulators, payment providers, marketing agencies, associations, legal advisers, start-ups, and others will be among the attendees.
The decision for a new home for our flagship event was driven by its remarkable growth, which had clearly outpaced the capacity of Fira Barcelona Montjuïc, as well as praise and support from clients and industry stakeholders. When we say it’s the fastest ever-growing event in the industry, we mean it, and that’s why finding the right venue and city was absolutely essential.said Rasmus Sojmark, CEO and Founder of SBC
The event’s expansion in terms of exposition does not come at the expense of its commitment to offering the best delegate experience possible. The conference will have eight stages and 500 speakers, including the largest gaming stage in the world, which will seat thousands of delegates. The event will also provide the best gaming hospitality, with food trucks serving both local and foreign dishes and beverages throughout the day. There will be several networking and business possibilities available throughout the various pubs, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, a beer garden, a beach bar, fun and game zones, and much more.
We are thrilled to welcome the SBC Summit to Lisbon in 2024. At FIL – Lisbon Exhibition & Convention Centre, we are dedicated to providing world-class facilities and support to ensure that this event is nothing short of spectacular. Our team is committed to working closely with SBC and its community to create an unforgettable experience in our beautiful city. We can’t wait to showcase all that FIL and Lisbon have to offer and make the SBC Summit a resounding success for many years to come.said Maria João Rocha de Matos, General Director of FIL
Lisbon, one of the oldest towns in Western Europe and a global historical treasure, attracts over six million tourists each year and is known for its friendly residents. The city has an efficient transit system, and while Portuguese is the official language, English is commonly spoken in crucial areas. The food culture in Lisbon is a top incentive to visit, and the venue is surrounded by a dynamic selection of bars and restaurants, with over 20 options within walking distance.
Given the international nature of the event, Lisbon is also an excellent alternative due to its strong flight connectivity. Humberto Delgado Airport, located just 4 kilometers from FIL, connects to 136 airports worldwide, including nonstop flights to major US and South American destinations.
The city and FIL are home to the Web Summit that annually gathers over 70,000 attendees and transforms the city into a tech hub and was an immediate and obvious choice. We knew that FIL possessed all the essential elements for scaling our event while maintaining accessibility and upholding the high-quality standards we’ve set for ourselves. I’m excited about what lies ahead. This is a unique moment for SBC, and we’re wholeheartedly embracing it,Sojmark added.
