What is the visitor’s profile?
Our visitors are usually people who are considering working or starting businesses in the gaming industry. The topics we have included on the agenda, cover issues that affect everyone involved in gaming, so visitors will have all the information they need to make their final decision on being a part of this highly lucrative industry.
What is the main novelty in this 2017 edition?
We have new speakers, new exhibitors and hot industry related topics being discussed. I guess the novelty will be that all of our newer speakers will provide fresh opinions on certain issues impacting the industry. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear solutions to their problems from many different perspectives. I.E a regulator’s perspective will usually differ from a bookmaker’s perspective, we encourage our speakers to work together on forming a comprehensive all angles to make use of an opportunity.
How does your event contribute to the industry at large? And to Africa?
It’s a well-known fact that the African market is the fastest growing in any industry, but especially for gaming. We Africans want to have the same standard of living as the rest of the world and we are working very hard to get there. Foreign investors will have the opportunity to invest in Africa, before the market becomes too saturated and profit from the monumental growth that Africa is currently undergoing.
This foreign investment then boosts the profits of African businesses and vice versa, which will provide new employment opportunities and raise Africa’s standard of living.
Finally, could you give us some participation results of the last edition?
Gladly, last year’s Sports Betting West Africa had over 250+ Attendees, 200+ Delegates, 30+ Exhibitors and 30+ Speakers. We expect over 300 attendees from all over the world at this year’s Sports Betting West Africa Summit.
