09:45 – 10:00 – Welcome from the conference chair
10:15 – 11:15 – State of the industry
A case study on the trends of the global betting industry over the past 12 months with a look at the continuing consolidation among operators but also among affiliates and the impact that legislation and Brexit may have on the European industry.
Scott Longley, Clear Concise Media
12:00 – 13:00 – 24/7 service – being there for the customer
Betting habits extend much further than the European sporting day, so what can operators do to keep their customers engaged beyond the final whistle?
Meir Mosses, VP of Business Development, Don Best
14:00 – 14:45 – Georgia – gateway to Eastern Europe
For companies looking at CIS and Eastern Europe, Georgia has become interesting as a Regional Gambling Hub as it is the only “fully” regulated market in the region. How is the market structured, who are the main players and what are the opportunities for the bookmakers in newly formulated regulated market?
14:45 – 15:30 – Retaining champions – how to encourage brand loyalty
With the cost of customer acquisition so high, why aren’t more bookmakers investing in customer retention? What role does the affiliate play in customer retention going forward? Can non-betting products encourage brand loyalty? Should operators be offering a more experiential relationship with their customers? This session will look at retention products, sponsorship activation and the affiliate relationship with customers
16:00 – 16:45 – Are customers price sensitive? An analysis of the overround erosion
There’s an interesting battle unfolding between bookmaker’s marketing and trading teams. Certain bookies are still able to offer wide overrounds without impacting their market penetration, while others are offering very tight pricing but haven’t managed to translate this into market share yet. Where is the sweet spot and exactly how important is pricing? This session will look at how much room there is there room for error and if you can become successful without tight pricing.
Guy Harding, Head of Commercial, Oddschecker
16:45 – 17:30 – Mobile UX – the next big challenge for bookmakers
The mobile channel has been vital for revenues for some years now but the user experience still leaves a lot to be desired as navigation still takes its lead from the desktop sites, and onboarding new customers through the registration process can still be onerous. This session will ask are bookmakers fully exploiting the mobile channel? Is the industry using algorithms well enough to customise the experience and can mobile be the bridge between online and retail environments?
