TORONTO, ONTARIO, June 1, 2022 – SBC, the leading international events and media business for the sports betting and igaming industries, has announced that the Canadian Gaming Summit 2023 will be staged on June 13-15 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The 2023 edition of the long-established conference and trade show will see it undergo a major change, as it will be the Summit’s first year under SBC’s management.

SBC previously announced the agreement to terms to acquire Canada’s premier annual conference and trade show for land-based and igaming professionals from current joint owners the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) and MediaEdge Communications.

The acquisition will be completed after this year’s edition of the Summit, which takes place June 7-9, 2022. It features a conference program that covers the key issues arising from the significant recent regulatory changes in the country, with sessions on topics including taxation, advertising rules, integrity in sports, responsible gambling, new technology, and the future of sports betting and igaming.

The CGA will continue to be involved as an official and strategic partner of the Summit from 2023 onwards, and will work with SBC to ensure the event supports the continued development of the gaming industry in Canada.

Rasmus Sojmark, Founder & CEO of SBC, commented: “We are delighted to bring the Canadian Gaming Summit into the SBC portfolio in 2023. We are already working closely with the Canadian Gaming Association to continue to build upon what is already a great conference. The opportunities for exponential growth in what is already an exciting market are tremendous and we look forward to continuing to help the industry develop igaming and sports betting in Canada.”

Canadian Gaming Association President & CEO Paul Burns commented: “We are excited for this year’s event and eagerly await what SBC will add to the show in the future. SBC’s global reach and multiple international conferences, like the SBC Summit North America, will provide us with greater opportunities to showcase Canada’s gaming industry and highlight our members’ success.”

SBC will be present at this year’s Canadian Gaming Summit in booths 808 & 809 where attendees and participating companies are invited to discuss ideas, the strategy, and future editions of the event.

Anyone interested in participating in this year’s Canadian Gaming Summit should contact MediaEdge directly or reach out to their SBC account manager.
