Dr. Laila Mintas selected to judge at the 2020 Sports Betting Community (SBC) Awards

The SBC Awards recognise the achievements of operators and affiliates, as well as suppliers from across all the major disciplines including payments, marketing, platform providers and data.

PlayUp U.S. CEO, Dr. Laila Mintas will be part of a panel of judges, consisting of industry leaders handpicked for their ability to identify exceptional operator performance and the potentially game-changing innovations among the entries.

This is the seventh edition of the SBC Awards. The mission of the organiser is to reward and celebrate excellence in the betting and gaming industry. SBC will award top achievers: operators, affiliates, and suppliers, based on their results across several disciplines. Companies are competing in 44 award categories: 14 Operator awards, 3 Affiliate awards, 21 Supplier awards, 2 Specialist awards and 4 Payment awards.

This year’s awarding is a special one, as it refers to a very challenging period, marked by lockdown, uncertainty and everything but business as usual. With a record 650 nominations this year, the winners of all 44 SBC Awards will be announced during a ceremony broadcast live online for the first time, to an international audience of over 800 professionals from the sports betting and igaming industry on Wednesday, December 9.
