Thought leaders back Clarion’s Gaming Africa

Clarion has published the Agenda for the inaugural Gaming Africa Conference, which is taking place next October 24-25 in Johannesburg. 'The conference brings a long-overdue event to arguably the most important and exciting region in the world for the future of gaming,” said Curtis Roach, Content Lead for Gaming Africa.

Created as a networking opportunity for both the industry and its regulators to share knowledge and best practice, Gaming Africa will feature thought leaders including Edgar Agaba, CEO, Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board Uganda; Lanre Gbajabiamila, Director General, National Lottery Commission of Nigeria; 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, covering Casino Marketing and Sportsbook Management, Gaming Africa has raised the bar in terms of delivering an event dedicated to meet the specific gaming needs of the continent.

Heralding the new event, African gaming expert, Roy Bannister, said: "I anticipate a lot of interest from international visitors looking to get in on the action in a jurisdiction that is pretty hot at the moment. There is also interest from numerous African regulators wanting to understand how to more effectively regulate their industries, as well as manufacturers looking to place the latest gaming technology on the continent and enable operators to run profitable gaming ventures."

Curtis Roach, Content Lead for Gaming Africa, said: "It’s fantastic to be working on Gaming Africa as it brings a long-overdue event to arguably the most important and exciting region in the world for the future of gaming. My remit is to produce a forum that inspires, generates active discussion and provides invaluable ideas for delegates to take back to their organisations.”

Clarion’s decision to launch Gaming Africa follows requests from major industry players for a quality business-to-business event dedicated to meet the specific gaming needs of the continent.
