SiGMA has made conference partnerships with KPMG, BiG Foundation, iGaming Academy and MGA, as well as Random Consulting’s Mario Galea and Aideen Shortt, ahead of its upcoming event in Malta.
SiGMA is part of the much anticipated Malta Gaming Week, which gets underway on November 12. The summit itself will take place between the 16th and 19th, with all iGaming company executives, operators and affiliates welcome to attend, along with anyone working in marketing, legal and finance.
After gathering feedback from previous events, this year’s summit will see some upgrades, including organisers flying 300 affiliates in for free, and shifting the show a month away from the BAC and EiG in Berlin to create the all-encompassing Malta Gaming Week.
In addition, the idea of a ‘SiGMA Pitch’ should go down well with the start-ups, innovators and investors in attendance. With so many mergers and acquisitions, expect some serious deals to be made in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ environment.
Eman Pulis, SiGMA Founder, said: “We needed a strong campaign to generate more interest among affiliates. So we took some inspiration from the movie 300 and, in an unprecedented move, are giving away the equivalent in flights for affiliates from all over Europe and Tel Aviv.
“Exhibiting operators were encouraged to invite VIP guests, flights on us, and throw a string of hospitality events around SiGMA. After all, Malta lends itself quite well for wining, dining and late night shenanigans.”
Dennis Dyhr-Hansen, SiGMA Co-Organiser, added: “We added a lot of networking events, dinners, drinks too. Andy Jones, who only until last year was a partner with another event, will be setting up one of the largest booths at SiGMA this year. We are also working closely with him to throw an unforgettable Aliquantum Welcome Party at Casino Malta.”
Joseph Cuschieri, Executive Chairman at Malta Gaming Authority, commented: “SiGMA is an excellent networking and knowledge sharing opportunity for local gaming operators, service providers and other industry players seeking to operate in or from Malta. I believe that events like SiGMA can showcase Malta’s unique attributes and strengthen our position as a world class gaming jurisdiction.
