SiGMA Group are busier than ever before, gearing up for a global upgrade of their annual roadmap. Reaching six distinct markets across four continents, we are bringing the world-renowned SiGMA Summit experience to emerging markets like Kenya and Brazil, while an iconic return is planned to Dubai.

SiGMA Group’s mission is to take the lead in such emerging markets and offer something truly unique – Eman Pulis, Founder of SiGMA.

“2023 promises to be our most bustling year yet,” remarked SiGMA Group Founder Eman Pulis. “We are excited to bring our delegates the conference and networking entertainment they have grown to love, with a few calculated twists to keep them on their toes. We look forward to seeing you there.”

January – SiGMA Africa in Nairobi, Kenya

In less than two weeks, the SiGMA Africa Summit will be debuting in Nairobi, Kenya. The country boasts 30 licensed sportsbooks, making it the third largest gaming market in Sub-Saharan Africa. Furthermore, the country’s youthful population and open mentality to business and technology make it a natural hub for entrepreneurs.

In recognition of the tremendous economic potential to be found in African countries, the Africa Summit is dedicated to invigorating this emerging market to staggering heights. It will be bringing its traditional networking and conferencing experiences, alongside ample opportunities to explore and soak in the wonders of the first continent with an organised safari and cultural tour.

With 12 days left to the event, we urge delegates eyeing this emerging market to act fast and get their tickets ASAP!

March – SiGMA Eurasia in Dubai, UAE

March 2023 will mark the second iteration of the SiGMA Eurasia Summit held in Dubai. Opening its doors to a record-breaking turnout in 2022, this lucrative event was host to three separate conferences and 9,000 delegates from across the world.

We are excited to be returning to the business and leading-crypto hub that is Dubai, UAE, while bringing with us monumental names like the inspirational Gary Vee. As the intersectional landmark connecting the Asian and European gaming markets, Dubai is an excellent melting pot of cultures and ideas.

With plans to unite the policy-makers, developers, C-suite executives and legal experts of the burgeoning gaming, AI and Blockchain sectors, every expectation will be exceeded. Through three days of educational panels, insightful keynote speeches, workshops and networking events, the expo seeks to create the foundation that the future of gaming and the Industrial Revolution 4.0 can be built upon.

May – SiGMA Americas in São Paulo, Brazil

With a number of reputable events taking over North America, we thought of offering something unique to our delegates in the Americas. After its prime foray into Toronto last year, SiGMA Americas is flying south to Latin America this May. With landmark regulation currently in the works, Brazil is yet another emerging market standing on the verge of an economic boom.

In the last year alone, lawmakers passed a new bill, with Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies voting in favour of regulating online and land-based gaming – thus setting the framework for the potential launch of a newly regulated market. The bill will still need to make its way through the Senate before being signed into law. However, 2022 also saw up to 31 land-based casino resorts get authorised, with additional licences offered for riverboats and cruise ships.

All things considered, the iGaming market looks set to grow to around 2.6 billion over the next 5 years for this nation of sports lovers. LatAm is the place to be for sports books and betting. According to Statista’s 2022 survey, football is the most popular sport amongst Brazilian bettors, followed by basketball, esports, and poker, with MMA rounding off the top five.

July – SiGMA Asia in Manila, Philippines

The Philippines are the choice destination for this year’s SiGMA Asia Summit. This July, Manila will see the convergence of our vast network in the West with leading Asian suppliers, operators and affiliates.

Accommodating a population of over 4 billion people, Asia’s gaming industry is rapidly expanding, with the Philippines leading this economic charge. Crucial efforts are being made by the regulatory body PAGCOR to make the cultivation of a strong and sustainable gaming foundation as seamlessly efficient as possible. Last year, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr swore in a new regulatory board, headed by businessman Alejandro H. Tengco, who will be taking over from Andrea Domingo.

September – SiGMA Balkans/CIS in Limassol, Cyprus

SiGMA Group’s first venture into the Balkans/CIS region took place in Belgrade, Serbia last year. After an overwhelmingly successful first run, delegates have demanded an encore. SiGMA Group is happy to deliver, choosing Limassol as the destination for this year’s SiGMA Balkans/CIS Summit.

Situated in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is an island which boasts crystalline vistas, a warm climate and an attitude towards life and business that past delegates will find familiar to Malta. Located on the southern coast of the island, Limassol was ranked in 2014 as the 3rd up-and-coming destination in the world.

Limassol boasts a growing business hub, accommodating Russian-speaking and Israeli-owned gaming companies. From content marketers to gaming KOLs, the summit will be bringing together thousands of like-minded delegates.

November – SiGMA Europe in TaQali, Malta

They say that all roads lead to home. This can’t be more emblematic of what Malta Week represents for SiGMA Group. As SiGMA Group’s flagship event, Malta Week is fully dedicated to bringing delegates the cream of the crop as far as the SiGMA, AIBC, AGS and Med-Tech World Summits are concerned. Its economic contribution to this typically cold shoulder month also makes the event a mainstay for the islands.

Last November, Malta Week opened its doors to 25,000 delegates, who got to enjoy the SiGMA Summit experience with some memorable twists, like an exclusive MMA tournament held by Centurion-Fc. VIP speakers, top-tier digital marketers, emerging tech KOLs, the brightest start ups and more gathered together under one roof for the premium networking event of the year.
