Commenting on the positive response, Curtis Roach, Content Lead for Gaming Africa, said: “We have been working alongside industry stakeholders to create a bespoke event which meets the very specific needs of what is one of the most important and dynamic regions in world gaming. I’m delighted to confirm that the response to the Agenda, which we published last week, has been extremely positive.
“Learning and training are the foundation stones of Gaming Africa and the opportunity to network underpins every element of the two days delegates will spend with us in Johannesburg. From our experience putting on events throughout the world, the gaming industry is at its very best when it has the opportunity to sit down and talk about opportunities, challenges, technology, regulation, personalities and products. This is what Gaming Africa is all about and the energy this combination of topics brings, will be in abundance at the inaugural event.”
He added: “Gaming economies have a much greater chance of being sustainable if they involve regulators and legislators. We are therefore delighted that Gaming Africa will feature influential figures including Edgar Agaba, CEO, Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board Uganda, James Mbalwe, Director General, Gaming Board of Tanzania and Jean Claude Mushmire, Head of the Services Industry Development Policy, Rwanda Ministry of Trade and Industry.”
With learning modules covering the economy, payment methods, social responsibility, anti-money laundering, investment, public relations, regional roundtables and two master classes from the Totally Gaming Academy, entitled ‘Casino Marketing Academy’ and ‘Online Sports Betting Master Class’, Gaming Africa has raised the bar in terms of delivering an event dedicated to meet the specific gaming needs of the continent.
