Keynote:The Future of Legalized, Regulated Sports Betting in the U.S.

October 10, 2018, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Sands Expo & Convention Center - Special Events Stage
With the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the failed federal ban on sports betting, jurisdictions can now decide if legalized, regulated sports betting is right for them. What are the implications for key stakeholders – such as sports leagues, the media, the gaming industry, and more – and what does the landscape look like in 2019 and beyond? Learn answers to those questions and more at this interview-style discussion with two of the preeminent thought leaders on the topic: Scott Van Pelt, the anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter and an outspoken supporter of legalized, regulated sports betting – and Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs for the American Gaming Association (AGA) who led AGA's advocacy campaign to highlight the failures of PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992) and helped to enable this significant opportunity.
