SiGMA Group has forged collaboration with Clarion Gaming on its upcoming online gambling event in Manila, which will be held at the SMX Convention Centre on 8-9 June 2020, according to a press release sent to Business Malta.
SiGMA is taking the B2B event open for the iGaming sector’s online suppliers, operators, affiliates, regulators and blockchain businesses to Manila, expanding the Maltese event overseas.
The Manila expo will concentrate on the importance of bridging the business division between East and West, addressing topics such as the regulatory environments in different territories, the integration of blockchain and new emerging technologies and the bandwidth problems for mobile gaming, among others, the group says.
Furthermore, figures from Global Gambling Statistics 2019 show that seven of the top ten locations for gambling revenue based on visitors are in Asia (including Australia). For instance, in Macau, revenue is expected to reach as high as US$53b by 2022, according to the press release sent to BM.
“The opportunities for growth in Asia are increasing exponentially year on year, and the time is right to cement new and existing relationships between the gambling industries in both East and West,” said Kate Chambers, MD Clarion Gaming.
“To combine the expertise of Clarion courtesy of the world-famous ICE brand and SiGMA ensures both the land-based and iGaming sectors will find synergy in Manila in 2020. This is an exciting time as we extend the reach of the ICE brand following the launch of ICE Africa in 2018 and ICE North America in May 2019,” Mr Chambers added.
“As we take the SiGMA brand to global markets, we are proud to facilitate the biggest gaming expo to bring East and West together. It is unprecedented for two such established events to join forces in Asia this way, so this will be an unmissable calendar event amongst C-level gaming executives, whether they have existing business activity in Asia or are looking to expand their operations in the Far East,” said Eman Pulis, Founder and CEO of SiGMA Group.
