Dinner, debate, and debut of new bill: SiGMA iGathering brings Ukrainian gaming industry to the capital, with guest of honour Boris Baum, Advisor to the Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine joining panel discussion
SiGMA Group is pleased to announce its second European iGathering event this year. The conference and dinner will be held in Kiev, Ukraine, on the 27 August, at the Premier-Palace Hotel.
Registration and networking drinks start at 6pm, followed by a panel discussion on the newly-signed bill on gambling legislation in Ukraine and later a lavish dinner with entertainment from singer Lilia Korolyuk.
The event will cater to an exclusive guest list of industry leaders; with SiGMA providing a much-needed platform to unite key players, particularly those based in Ukraine, such as operators, affiliates, regulators, government officials, legislators and members of the tourism sector.
The iGathering will kick off with a welcome note from SiGMA Group founder, Eman Pulis, followed by a few words from panel moderator and SiGMA Brand Ambassador for the CIS Region, Denis Dzyubenko.
“Our iG Kiev will be held 2 weeks after the bill will be signed by the President of Ukraine, Vlazimir Zelenskiy. It’s a great opportunity for all operators, advertisers, lawyers, regulators, and affiliates to meet face-to-face and SiGMA iG is just the platform and place to do it.
“It’s great news that the whole market is coming out from the dark and into the light by starting to operate legally. Legislation and the ‘White’ Legal operations will boost the budget of the country, will give more job opportunities to people, touristic destinations will regain some life and hopefully foreign investors will consider Ukraine as a good, profitable & LEGAL destination to do business in,” said Denis Dzyubenko, CIS Region Brand Ambassador at SiGMA Group.
The first panel will see 4 acclaimed speakers join for a 20 minute in-depth discussion focussing on the new law. Iryna Sergienko, Artem Kuzmenko, and Alexey Yevchenko – including guest of honour for the evening, Advisor to the Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Boris Baum, will discuss the bill and its impact on Ukraine’s gambling and business market. A brief Q&A session will then take place before a second panel made up of SiGMA’s generous sponsors, Posh Friends, FavBet, Evoplay Entertainment, TrueFlip, and TVBET closes the debate.
“I’m thrilled to be attending this event. The signing of this bill is a landmark moment for Ukraine – being able to meet with some of the top figures in the industry to discuss this important piece of legislation will be key to the future success of the gambling industry in Ukraine. I’m grateful to SiGMA for providing us with this platform,” said Boris Baum, Advisor to the Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine (seen right).
The law allows opening casinos, bookmaker’s offices, including on the Internet, slot machine halls on the territory of Ukraine, and organising sites for online poker.
The localised event, which is predominantly for those already based in Ukraine will be held in strict accordance with Ukraine’s requirements for health and safety, with all possible measures taken to ensure the welfare of guests and speakers.
