EGR Global has announced a further two additions to its speaker line-up at the inaugural East Coast Briefing, with Kambi CEO Kristian Nylén and Rick Wolf of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) set to join the roster.
For Nylén, this will represent a rare public appearance on an industry panel where he will be joined by Golden Nugget’s Thomas Winter, Penn National Gaming’s Chris Sheffield and Benjie Cherniak of Don Best Sports to discuss what prospective US sportsbooks can learn from successful international sports betting models. The panel will be moderated by David Sargeant, industry consultant and founder of iGaming Ideas.
The EGR East Coast Briefing takes place on June 26 at Le Méridien in Philadelphia to coincide with the US Supreme Court’s imminent decision on the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). Wolf, a founding board member of FSTA, will lead a round table discussion on the implications of legalised sports betting for daily fantasy sports.
Jason Barrett of the West Virginia House of Delegates, who was instrumental in the passage of the state’s sports betting bill, will talk about the path to regulation and the lessons to be learned from West Virginia.
