Alejandro H. Tengco, Chairman and CEO of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, is set to headline the SiGMA Asia 2024 opening ceremony. The news was confirmed after representatives from PAGCOR met with SiGMA Asia’s Managing Director, Neil Shih, to finalize their schedule ahead of the event, taking place June 2 - 6.

In addition to a keynote during the official conference opening ceremony on June 4, PAGCOR will take part in a panel discussion focusing on gaming regulations, the IGL License and the current state of the iGaming landscape in the Philippines.

Tengco will also take part in a tour of the expo floor, where he will meet with some of the 250+ exhibitors taking part in the event, to be held at the SMX Convention Centre in Manila.

The chairman is also confirmed to attend the SiGMA Asia Awards evening, a gala event that takes place on June 3 at the Forbes Ballroom in the Conrad Hotel.

The confirmation follows PAGCOR's latest figures, which show an impressive first-quarter financial performance for 2024, including a surge in income to PHP25.24 billion (€408.5 million).

"This 42.57 percent increase over the same period last year has sparked satisfaction within the corridors of PAGCOR’s leadership," said SiGMA. Alejandro Tengco expressed delight at the firm’s robust performance, stating: “We are happy to announce that PAGCOR is able to sustain our growth trajectory in the first quarter of 2024, and this should help position us into achieving another record-breaking year”.

The SIGMA Asia summit will take place from the 2nd to the 6th of June at the SMX Convention Centre, Manila’s largest expo venue. SiGMA will connect its network in the West with Asian suppliers, operators, and affiliates, opening up business opportunities, and providing a space for networking for an expected turnout of 20,000 delegates.

SiGMA Asia’s double-decker expo floor features a diversified portfolio of B2B and B2C brands, as well as a number of land-based exhibitors, making it one of the biggest gaming shows in Asia. The event will also focus on emerging technologies, bringing cutting-edge tech, such as AI and Blockchain to the floor.

Two full days of conference will provide a valuable platform for knowledge sharing and debate. A guestlist of VIP speakers will address topics ranging from the regulatory landscape to the integration of emerging technologies, while a series of competitive startup pitches will "bring exciting new companies and ideas to light."

With official endorsements from PAGCOR and CEZA supporting the event, delegates can expect 3,000 operators and over 350 speakers at the event.
