Gambling Indaba Conference and Expo – Africa’s Gambling and Allied Industry Trade Show is going to take place from October 9 to 11 2016. The event will be organised at Emperors Palace.
After a successful inaugural show at the CTICC in Cape Town last year, the organisers decided to move the Gambling Indaba Conference and Expo to Africa’s commercial centre, Johannesburg. Last year, the event was attended by over 220 industry leaders and more than 20 exhibitors and was Africa’s first Gambling Trade Show.
Sun International, leading African gaming and hotel operator has re-affirmed its support for the event as a Diamond Sponsor. The list of new exhibitors includes Novomatic Africa, Gamesmart, Simplicit-e Gaming, DRGT, MP Gaming and Suzo Happ to name a few.
CEO Percy Kwinda on Gambling Indaba Conference and Expo:
‘We were overwhelmed by the success Gambling Indaba achieved last year which underscored our belief that Africa needed its own global event, similar to ICE in London and G2E in Vegas, where not only local African suppliers and manufacturers could gather to network, create business opportunities and share knowledge about products and services relevant to their markets, but also act as a hub for international manufacturers, suppliers and operators to enter the vibrant and exciting African gaming and hospitality market. To date we have signed up a number of new exhibitors including Novomatic Africa”
Roy Bannister, COO of Gambling Indaba:
“Gambling Indaba 2016 promises to build on the success of our inaugural show. Our conference programme will include relevant discussion topics such as BBBEE (Broad-Based Black Ecomonic Empowerment), the latest African gaming trends, Sportsbetting Growth and future potential across the continent, South Africa’s latest stance taken in terms of a new Gambling Policy, to name just a few. We also have the tacit support of the South African Gaming Manufacturer’s Association (SAGMA), which represents global brands such as Novomatic, Suzo Happ, Gold Club and DRGT – and in fact have already taken stand bookings from a few of these major international suppliers.”
