The number of attendees is expected to be just over 800 people for the conference which takes place between 3-5 May at Chelsea FC’s home ground, up from the 400 delegates who attended last year’s event.
As well as the number of conference stands sold rising from last year’s total of nine to 37 at present, 2017’s event will see over 130 CEOs and directors speaking on variety of subjects.
Confirmed speakers include Gaming Innovation Group CEO Robin Reed, William Hill’s John O’Reilly and GVC Holdings’ COO Shay Segev.
In addition, Mr Green CEO Jesper Kaarbrink and LeoVegas CEO Johan Styren will be providing their insight, with both companies making their sportsbook debuts last year.
Furthermore, speakers from the world of football include Liverpool FC’s partnership development manager Shaun Petafi, Sponsorship Sales Manager for Fulham FC George Alston and Celtic FC’s commercial director Adrian Filby.
Representatives from some of the world’s biggest clubs and organisations will be in attendance, including Real Madrid, AC Milan, Chelsea and La Liga.

"We have over 130 senior figures from the industry’s leading operators and suppliers speaking on a variety of subjects impacting the football betting environment.
"We’re thrilled the event has gained in popularity, and this is a conference anyone interested in sports betting simply cannot afford to miss out on.”
Topics for the two-day event include preventing match fixing, the opportunities different markets offer and the challenges of live betting.
