Ruud Gullit joins the speaker lineup for H20 Data Seminar

Thursday, Jan 26, 2017 12:50

Gullit, who won the Ballon d’Or in 1987, was part of the now legendary AC Milan squad that won 3 Serie A titles and 2 European Cups from 1987 to 1993 and captained the Netherlands national team that was victorious at Euro 1988.

The Dutch master will be appearing alongside England and Liverpool legend John Barnes and both former footballers will be answering questions about their long and successful playing careers.

The invite-only sports data seminar is being held at One Whitehall Place in London on 5 February, the Sunday before the ICE Totally Gaming show at ExCeL.

The seminar also includes a session featuring industry experts, such as trading consultant Jon Thompson, data expert Nathan Rothschild of iSportConnect and Jonathan Smith from Sportsbook Training Services. They will be discussing the application of data within a business, both pre-match and live, and the vital role that data feeds play within the industry.

BetConstruct will also be hosting an innovative session covering the ways in which it utilises data in its B2B services. The event is pitched at sports betting traders, C-Level Management, Sportsbook Directors and Sportsbook Managers across the industry.

SBC Managing Director Andrew McCarron commented: “This event is really proving popular – we’ve already had to extend the capacity of the evening – and getting Ruud Gullit involved is a great coup. A great mix of debate, fine food and insight from footballing superstars sounds like a great way to start ICE week to me.”

BetConstruct founder Vigen Badalyan added: “Data is such an important aspect of business that an event such as this is a great opportunity to discuss how feeds are evolving with the business.”
The event will begin at 6:00 pm and officially end at 11:30 pm, but will be quickly followed by drinks and networking at the Royal Horseguards Hotel.
