Betting in Face of COVID-19: Online Conference, Speakers & Ticket Discounts

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the rapid spread of СОVID-19, various countries had to announce the quarantine and impose certain restrictions. Closing of state borders, the shutdown of entertainment venues, the ban on flights, the cancellation of matches and other public events – these aspects have a negative impact on different business areas and the economy in general.

The crisis has also affected the betting market. Betting operators had to close land-based betting pools and significantly reduce betting lines. To save your business under such conditions and keep leading positions on the market, bookies should adapt to the new environment and change their focus areas if necessary.

On April 17, Smile-Expo will hold Betting in face of COVID-19. It is an online conference dedicated to nuances of betting businesses in Europe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event starts at 11:00.
