Two-day gaming summit at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg
The BiG Africa Summit grows every year, and the fifth instalment, which opens today 07 November, promises to be the biggest show ever. Over November 7 & 8, The BiG Africa Supershow makes its debut, as promised by Eventus-International Project Director, Yudi Soetjiptadi, just over a year ago.
“Africa is ready for the next big step. Our partners, exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees, have loyally supported us over the past four years and together we have explored the African continent. But we all agree that it is time to take this to the next level. The African Gaming industry is ready and Eventus-International will soon reveal its offering for 2017!”, said Soetjiptadi.
And indeed, the reveal seems to be living up to its name with a powerful cast of presenters, regulators, and exhibitors all ready to take to the stage and the floor at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, where excitement is just getting buzzing.
Representatives of over 200 companies will be on hand to inform and learn about the latest trends in the important rising African iGaming marketplace.
