We are delighted to confirm that Howard Chisholm (Director, Bookmakers Technology Consortium Ltd.) will be speaking at BTF19!
Howard was one of the four bookmakers who started Bookmakers Technology Consortium in 2007. The BTC is a not for profit co-operative which provides technology services to independent bookmakers in the UK and Ireland.

During his presentation Howard will discuss the changes that are happening in the independent sector following the reduction of the Category B2 maximum stake to £2.
Are there new products available that could provide income to replace the lost B2 revenue?
What can be done to reduce operational costs?
There have been a large number of shop closures, how is this impacting the sector?
How will further regulation affect the sector?
