Conference headliners, Dan Marino Keynote and more at upcoming SBC Summit North America

“As the event draws ever nearer, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to shed some light on the diverse array of amazing conference headliners set to grace the stage at SBC Summit North America. And maybe, just maybe, give you an exclusive look at our amazing keynote speaker! So get ready, and prepare yourself for a big name or two!”, commented sources of the organization.


During SBC Summit North America, we are extremely proud to welcome over 300 industry luminaries to impart their expertise and actionable insights on the conference stage.

Amongst these 300 speakers, will be recognizable names, - figures who have dramatically impacted the industry, esteemed political figures, and representatives from leading sports leagues or organizations.

Therefore, it seemed only fitting that these notable figures be known as ‘Conference Headliners’, the ‘Metallica’ of the gambling world if you will.

So, with that in mind, I'm sure you are now wondering,

“So who are these amazing Conference Headliners?”

Well friends, let's take a look!


Congresswoman Dina Titus, representing Nevada’s First District will deliver a video address to inaugurate the conference on Wednesday, May 8. Titus is championing a bold initiative to overhaul outdated gambling taxes, garnering support from both political adversaries and the Internal Revenue Service. Her stance of advocating for the complete abolition of industry taxes stems from a belief that if a tax is in place, its revenue should directly benefit the state generating. Titus also opposes allocating a percentage of federal sports excise tax revenue to gambling addiction treatment, deeming it redundant alongside existing education and treatment initiatives. Given her active role in such discussions, the video address is sure to be of interest to the SBC Summit North America attendees.


West Virginia Delegate and President of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS), Shawn Fluharty, is set to deliver a ‘State of the Gaming States Address’ presentation emphasizing the pivotal role of the organization in developing a model gambling legislation for states to streamline and optimize the legislative process. Speaking to SBC Americas earlier this month, Fluharty stated, 'I believe we can produce a framework that will serve as a tool and catalyst to produce sound policy in states going forward.' Additionally, Fluharty will participate in two panels: 'Why Online Casino Legislation Hasn't Kept Pace with Sports Betting' and 'NCLGs: Disunited States - When Will Regulators Collaborate on Compliance?'


Jan Jones Blackhurst, a Board Member at Caesars Entertainment, Inc., will also be featured as a headliner and interviewed by Contessa Brewer, Correspondent at CNBC. With over 20 years of industry experience, Blackhurst, former Mayor of Las Vegas, educator, and vocal advocate for responsible gambling, diversity and inclusion, has undeniably left an indelible mark on the US betting and gaming industry, making her participation in the event a highlight not to be missed. Prior to her current position as a Board Member, she served as a Director of Former Caesars until the Merger in July 2020. Additionally, she held pivotal roles at Former Caesars as Executive Vice President of Public Policy and Corporate Responsibility, Executive Vice President of Communications and Government Relations, and Senior Vice President of Communications and Government Relations.


Donna Orender, former President of the WNBA (Women's National Basketball Association) and a former player in the Women’s Professional Basketball League (WBL), where she earned All-Star status during her three-year tenure, will be interviewed by Wayne Kimmel, Managing Partner of SeventySix Capital. The conversation will delve into Orender's illustrious career in the WNBA, her impactful tenure at the PGA TOUR, partnership with former NBA Commissioner, David Stern, her experiences as a board member of the World Surf League, and her ventures as a sports team investor. Topics will include discussions on the representation of women’s sports organizations in the sports betting industry and burgeoning interest in betting on women’s sports.


Robert Norton, President, The Cordish Companies Casinos & Hotels, has been instrumental in shaping the gaming landscape for the past 30 years and has navigated the industry through various transitions. He will sit for a live Q&A session led by Sue Schneider, SBC’s VP of Strategy and Growth, Americas. His background includes both riverboat gaming and land-based developments in Maryland and Pennsylvania.  The conversation may include such issues as the potential cannibalization of brick-and-mortar establishments by online casinos, emphasizing the vital role of physical venues in job creation, economic stimulation, and community enhancement. Furthermore, he will offer insights gleaned from launching a sportsbook at Sports & Social within Live! Casino & Hotel, providing Maryland residents with the opportunity to wager on their favorite teams in collaboration with FanDuel.


So you are now aware of our amazing array of conference headliners… but what about our Keynote?
