Betting Industry`s BOF 2017Jake Cooper | 20 Jan 2017
Rasmus Sojmark, the founder of SBC, has fulfilled his promise to create an even larger and more prolific gathering of sports betting idols for this year’s Betting On Football event. For the first time ever, BOF will take place over the course of three days, running from the 3rd to the 5th of May 2017.
BOF 2017’s networking events are set to take place at the Under the Bridge nightclub and the Kensington Roof Gardens on the first and second days. A two day conference at Stamford Bridge is next on the list, to be concluded with a networking breakfast on the last morning of the 5th.
This decision to extend the conference to three days was made after the 2016 BOF at Stamford Bridge received rave reviews. Massive success of the Betting on Sports Conference held by SBC last September also contributed to the move.

The CEO of Sporting Index Simon Trim stated that operators and suppliers with an interest in football should definitely attend the event, and Vahe Balouian, the CEO at BetConstruct, praised it as an opportunity to meet and learn from like-minded people in the industry.
Many other respected professionals also had their say, including Mark Davies, the Head of New Business at Leicester City, who noted that the conference is a unique opportunity and a beneficial event for everyone.
