The date for the SiGMA ’19 expo in Malta has officially been set by organizers.
SiGMA Group has announced that the sixth annual summit will take place on November 27-29, 2019, at the MFCC in Ta’Qali.
It will focus on business expansion and deal-making within the gambling and gaming industry.
iGaming representatives from the East and West will take the spotlight alongside the introduction of A.I. & Blockchain into the iGaming ecosystem.
In a statement for the press, SiGMA said: “As a truly world-class event with an elite selection of delegates, policymakers, and thought leaders pouring in from across the globe, SiGMA is proud to call itself the World’s iGaming Village.
Through a commitment to quality and years of successful operations, SiGMA has developed a strong brand, evolving into a global influencer with the ability to facilitate the biggest deals across the iGaming sector.
“This global stance is reinforced by the Group’s expansion to Asia, with the inaugural SiGMA Manila taking place in June 2020.”
Over 400 sponsors and exhibitors will be present at the event, with 200 industry-leaders presenting sessions for the record-breaking 12,500 attendees from over 80 countries who will use this opportunity to share many ideas.
The show will be the biggest yet with chances to strike deals with huge gaming brands, speak to leading suppliers, and secure support from the top affiliates.
SiGMA Pitch will be run again, providing young start-ups with the chance to gain exposure and network on the expo floor, possibly leading to funding and mentoring from industry big-dogs.
The Malta Gaming Awards will again return on the evening of November 26, celebrating iGaming across the industry in all its success.
It’s really no surprise because iGaming such as online slots continue to rise in popularity.
The awards are split into 12 categories all directed towards different contributions to the iGaming world, including iGaming ICO, Payments Provider of the year, Best Asia-Focused Casino Operator, and Best Slot Game.
Awards for Best Sports Book Operator, Best Casino, Top Innovator, Best Games Vendor, and Best Careers Vendor will also be up for grabs.
Aside from presenting awards for the most intriguing and creative projects within the industry, the Gaming Awards will also host an art auction; all proceeds will be donated to a number of well-known charities.
Individual seats for the awards can be booked for €175 (USD$193); a central table for ten can be purchased for €1,750 (USD$1,933).
The deadline for nominations is September 30 – to enter visit the awards section of SiGMA’s website.
SiGMA also runs an annual conference in Asia. This time the location will be in Manila in June 2020.
Now that gambling is finally legal in Japan, it is thought that this will be a huge turning point for the event.
Around 300 exhibitors will be welcomed alongside 6000 attendees who will take part in two days of presentations, workshops, and premier networking events.
