The only event of its kind, The Matchbook Traders Conference unites the most influential people in betting. From leading academics to legendary gambling icons, meet the individuals that are shaping the future of betting.
Started in 2015, the first ever Matchbook Traders Conference took the stage to a sold out crowd. Proving to be a winning concept, the event was named in the Top 10 Global Gaming Conferences by Calvin Ayre, and earned a 90% approval rating from delegates, with 9 out of 10 delegates stating they would recommend the event to a friend.
The 2017 event is gearing up to be bigger and better. Matchbook is bringing together a selection of international industry experts discussing a range of topics from “How to be a successful sports trader” through to “The future of political betting”.

Harry Enten is a senior political writer and analyst for FiveThirtyEight, the research organisation focused on statistical analysis of politics, economics, culture and sports.
Harry is leading a significant shift in the way that political journalism is practised, one that relies on polling data rather than human sources and that tells stories based in numbers rather than anecdotes — conclusions that are as free as possible from assumptions.To find out more about Harry and his highly anticipated session at the Matchbook Traders Conference click here to go to our insights site.
