DFS and Sporstbooks
The daily fantasy sports are becoming larger by the day and there is an emerging need for them to work closely with the existing sports books to mutual benefit.

Alongside the representatives from the influential and longstanding international bookmakers, the conference will also include the DFS insiders such as Shergul Arshad (Mondogoal Founder & CEO) and Ubaldo Baldi (Skill Games & DFS manager at Lottomatica) as well as representatives of some brands that are only just entering the sports betting industry such as the Leo Vegas CEO, Johan Styren, who will be discussing the plans and hopes of his company for the upcoming period.
New Data Protection and Money Laundering Laws
Other than the relationship of bookmakers and DFS sites, a big topic of the Betting on Sports Conference 2016 will also be the upcoming money laundering and data protection laws that are set to go into power this year. Several influential insiders such as the former Gambling Commission CEO Jenny Williams will be delivering an interactive workshop meant to help the bookies better understand what they need to do in order to fully comply with the new laws.
