5 reasons why SiGMA Toronto is the gateway to the future of the iGaming industry

Beyond the fact that SiGMA’s network spans generations of passionate and seasoned long-term operators, the summit brings a number of important benefits to the table for any enterprising first-time delegate planning to join the broader SiGMA family

5.) The intersection between emerging tech and iGaming

While SiGMA focuses mainly on the iGaming and land based gambling sectors, the SiGMA expo happens in parallel to the two other verticals of the Group; the AIBC Summit and Affiliate Grand Slam.

The first of these is a globally respected hub and nexus for technologists, investors, entrepreneurs and innovators within the emerging tech space. This means that the best and brightest within the Blockchain, NFT, Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Crypto spaces will be front and present in Toronto. Its recent expansion into the Metaverse space has opened up a potentially once in a lifetime opportunity for operators seeking to augment their ventures in ways never before seen.

Affiliate Grand Slam brings together the thought leaders and pioneers of the digital marketing space. From SEO gurus to leading conversion optimizers, the Summit’s plethora of influencers and affiliates has the potential to supercharge the profile of any gambling firm wanting to make its mark on the international stage.

These three pillars of the SiGMA Group exhibit in parallel to each other, offering our delegates unparalleled opportunities for exposure and cross pollination with some of the most dynamic and powerful sectors of the modern and future economies.

4.) Ontario: The right place, the right time

The summits could not have picked a better place nor a better time. Given the passing of Bill C-218, which will open the floodgates for an entire industry in the region, SiGMA America’s June inauguration will allow it to set the stage for this industry within a mere 90 days of regulated operations in Ontario. This means that the movers and shakers of a nascent regulated industry will be front and center at the expo, letting our more ambitious delegates invest early in an ever growing sector.

At the heart of this growing network of innovators, Ontario stands as the pillar that will shape the industry to come. The province represents approximately 40 percent of the industry’s population and market with an estimated 40 companies already in the process of being licensed to operator-status in the Ontario market. This makes now the opportune time for any enterprising delegate to place themselves at the heart of the action.

3.) SiGMA Toronto: A place to raise and invest capital

Capital makes the world go round for both entrepreneurs who want to make their ambitious plans a reality as well as for investors who want to be part of the economy of the future. At the heart of the SiGMA Group as a whole is a deep love and appreciation for start-ups and investment, empowering visionaries with the fuel to make their mark on the world while also providing our broad network of investors a wide portfolio of potential unicorns to strengthen their financial future.

SiGMA is the place to not only meet your business match but also participate in several opportunities for capital investment. The SiGMA-AGS Pitch lets a hundred start-ups compete for a chance to pitch their idea to a panel of investors with up to $500,000 of equity investment and a suite of other benefits being the take-home prize for our lucky winner.

You can also meet representatives of several venture capital firms such as Ikigai Ventures, who specialize in frontier investments within gaming, esports, blockchain, fintech, psychedelics and much more. Beyond this, the sheer presence of investors and partners means that SiGMA Americas will be the place to be for selling your business or acquiring your next money maker!

2.) Meet the iGaming workforce of the future

Understanding the needs of a nascent industry, we know how meeting and hiring the right people could make or break a company. The global situation being what it is, we also understand that finding the right staff in difficult times is close to impossible, particularly in niche areas, such as design and development. Luckily enough, SiGMA Americas plans to make the impossible possible! While exhibitors will be boosting their HR presence on the floor, doors will open on the second day of the expo from 2pm to students and individuals seeking employment in the gaming and emerging tech sectors. Applicants may register their interest here.

Our SiGMA Career Fair will provide firms small and large with the opportunity to recruit the best and brightest in the marketing, compliance, regulation, AML, KYC and sales sectors to supercharge their own growth. With the looming Great Resignation, there may be no better time to gain access to the best talent than now. If you don’t, your competitors might!

1.) SiGMA Toronto: Elevating networking to an art form

Finally, SiGMA is known for being the place to not only meet the movers and shakers but to also have the time of your life doing it! From iGathering dinners and susnset cruises to networking drinks and gala awards, our delegates will have all the opportunities in the world to meet the operators, marketers, innovators and tech-gurus who can take their ventures to the moon and beyond.
