SiGMA is gearing up to host its second African event in the picturesque Cape Town, South Africa. This three-day summit is slated to occur from 11th to 13th March 2024 at the Sun Exhibits Integrated Resort.
The summit follows closely on the heels of SiGMA announcing Emily Micallef as their new CEO, stirring up considerable excitement. It's seen as an opportunity to gain insight into the strategies that the new CEO might deploy within the African iGaming events industry.
Last year's inaugural event in Kenya, held in Nairobi, proved to be a resounding success. Nairobi, known for its dynamic entrepreneurial spirit, set a high bar for this year's event.
South Africa is witnessing rapid growth in its market, making it a fertile ground for the introduction of a remote gambling bill. This development paves the way for novel opportunities within the sector.
An agenda led by experts will shed light on transformative developments within the regulatory landscape, sparking renewed interest. Additionally, a pitch competition offers a unique stage for promising startups to engage with leading investors and venture capitalists, showcasing their innovative concepts.
SiGMA's programme seamlessly blends professional engagements with social interaction, offering plentiful opportunities for forging significant connections. Attendees will include a spectrum of influential figures from the gaming sector, encompassing government officials, influencers, and policymakers.
The summit commences on 11th March with cultural tours, taking advantage of Cape Town's stunning natural scenery. The venue's proximity to the city's bustling centre adds to the event's appeal.
The event also includes a touch of glamour, with VIP dinners and a gala awards evening planned. Nominations for the prestigious SiGMA Awards are set to open in February 2024.
