iGMA Group has announced the dates for two shows in Manila for 2020, combined under one roof to ignite the symbiotic opportunities for businesses in each sector of iGaming, A.I., Blockchain, and emerging technologies. SiGMA Manila, ICE Asia and Manila A.I. & Blockchain (AIBC) Summit will take place June 8th-9th 2020 at the SMX Convention Centre, Manila.
The Consulate of the Republic of the Philippines in Malta has announced its support for SiGMA Group’s planned initiatives in Manila. In 2020, SiGMA Group will launch SiGMA Manila and the Manila A.I. and Blockchain Summit following the opening of an office in the region.
The Philippine Consulate in Malta seeks to promote the Philippines as a business and holiday destination with the end view to strengthen relationships between Malta and the Philippines. With this in mind, the Consulate aims to engender opportunities for Maltese-registered companies to exhibit at the SiGMA shows in Manila and to foster a connection with Philippine companies as well as build-up the event in the coming months.
The Group’s move eastwards capitalizes on the strong interest in Asia for iGaming and the growing value there for companies looking to move into up-and-coming iGaming markets. As Asia leads the way in merging new blockchain and A.I. technologies with the global iGaming sector, SiGMA Group is strengthening trade ties with the jurisdictions in the region to facilitate fresh business opportunities for European companies.
The joint expos will echo the success of sister events SiGMA Malta and the Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit. The shows in Manila in 2020 expect to welcome over 600 exhibitors and 11,000 attendees from across the globe for two days of conferences and workshops, and premier networking events.
Aside from taking on a supportive role for European companies looking to forge closer relations with their Asian counterparts, the launch of SiGMA Manila 2020 and the Manila A.I. & Blockchain Summit promises to bring a myriad of benefits to the hotspot, with introductions to global companies looking to expand in the area at the top of the agenda.
Eman Pulis, CEO SiGMA Group, commented: “Regulatory turmoil in Europe and increasing appetite in Asia for online gambling and Distributed Ledger Technology has led us to take this bold leap forward and launch our two most successful shows in Asia. Whether you’re in iGaming, A.I., Blockchain, or emerging tech, our mission is to support the obvious trend of European brands expanding East, and we’re delighted to endorse the great opportunities that exist in Asia.”
“We do not just want to react to what’s going on out there, but we want to take an active, leading role in not only bringing the Asian and European community together but also building long-lasting commercial opportunities,” he concluded.
