Experts in the gaming industry will gather on the 24th to the 25th of October at Johannesburg, South Africa. The need for an event that attends to the gaming needs of South Africa made it necessary to launch Gaming Africa. The conference will tackle various aspects of the continent’s iGaming market. The first session will be dedicated to introducing the economic environment and infrastructure of the region. Other than this, there will also be sessions that will benefit affiliates, and fiat and Bitcoin casino operators to offer services to the African community. This will be a big opportunity for Bitcoin to showcase its advantages in iGaming.
The topics to be debated at the event include: Africa’s Growing Economy, to have a better grasp of the African landscape and its effect on the iGaming industry; Payments: Is Cash Still King?, to learn how to be as successful as the Kenyan market’s use of Mpesa and make way for possibilities of digital gaming in the continent; Does Being Responsible Pay?, to explore the argument and prove how it was effective in other jurisdictions; Anti-Money Laundering and Sports Integrity, to find solutions to what hinders growth in the African gaming industry; Moving Forward with External Investment, to know the perspective of the international market on African market entry, the operational needs of the market, and the domestic view on foreign partnerships; Best Ways to Manage Public Relations, to know how the iGaming industry can work together to sway perceptions and to promote the benefits of the market; and Regional Roundtables: East, West, and South Africa, to share ideas with people of the same interest in your region.
The aforementioned topics are to be debated by distinguished African speakers including Uganda Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board CEO Edgar Agaba, Nigerian National Lottery Commission Director General Lanre Gbajabiamila, Tanzania National Gaming Board Director General James Mbalwe, and Rwanda Head of Services Industry Development Policy for Rwanda’s Ministry of Trade and Industry Jean Claude Mushmire.
