SiGMA 2017 Will Pack A Punch
The Summit of iGaming Malta (SiGMA) has doubled in size each year since its first summit in 2014.
The fourth edition of SiGMA is going to be bigger and better than ever. Whether you're an iGaming rookie, a big name or somewhere in between, we highly recommend you make the trip to Malta Nov. 22-25.
With over 6,000 projected attendees and a multitude of networking events, odds are you'll meet the right people to help you with your future endeavors.
A Thousand Free Flights
After their success allocating 300 free flights last year for affiliates, SiGMA has decided to more than triple the offer and is giving away 1,000 free flights for this year’s edition. The first 500 flights will go to new business affiliates, guaranteeing a fresh new wave of opportunities at this year’s event.
The second half of the free 1,000 flights will go to top level executives (e.g. casino managers, payment officers, CEOs, COOs and the like). Make sure you register on time to claim your free ticket!
Startup Pitch 2017
Last year the SiGMA Startup Pitch launched. This year, the Startup Pitch will be given a second go bringing the best 40 startups and several investors together.
All the 40 shortlisted startups will be given a free 2m2 booth at SiGMA17 and a consultancy package. From then on, only the top eight startups deemed to have the most potential will move on to the finals and be given an opportunity to make their pitch.
Each startup in the finals will be given a three-minute presentation spot which will be followed by a Q&A session from the investors and then the audience.
Six investors are already confirmed to be participating including Morten Klein from Klein Group and Carla Maree Vella from Optimizer Invest. Two investor spots are still waiting to be filled by those interested.
Check out how the Startup Pitch of last year was set up in the video below:
On the second day of the expo between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., IT developers and graduates (e.g. ICT, law, accountancy, etc.) will have the opportunity to come in contact with recruiters and potential employers. HR departments of exhibiting gaming companies will be present for all inquiries.
The Malta Fairs & Convention Centre (MFCC) in Ta’Qali will host SiGMA17. There will be six themed bars, three restaurants and two lounges within the so-called iGaming Village. Enjoy a drink, a lunch or a cigar on the house at SiGMA17! There will also be a free shuttle service which should make your visit at SiGMA a smooth and comfortable one.
The conference venue will have a similar setup from the year before with round tables and a large stage. SiGMA17 will hold four conferences. There are also numerous featured seminars. For exact dates and times, check out the schedule here.
