Africa’s gaming potential will be explored and celebrated at WrB Africa taking place in Lagos, Nigeria, next month.
WrB Africa is the first summit dedicated to exploring the opportunities and encouraging a regulatory framework to produce ‘a thriving and sustainable gaming industry in Sub-Saharan Africa’.
Senior conference producer, Curtis Roach says: ‘We have launched WrB Africa for those seeking to unlock the huge potential of this region, but who may be unsure of the complexities of the regulatory environment.
‘Perhaps they are already operating in one of the fast growing African regions but want to step up a level.’
Over 30 market-leading organisations are expected to descend upon the The Sheraton Lagos Hotel on 11-12 April. Speakers include John Kamara, Director of Global Gaming Africa; Tarimba Abbas, Director General of Tanzania Gaming Board, and Matthias Jacek Wojdyla, Head of International Affairs at FIFA.
Lanre Gbajabiamila, chief executive of the Lagos State Lottery Board (LSLB), who is set to give a keynote at the event, says: ‘The Nigerian gaming industry is an evolving one and gradually expanding. More states and individuals are becoming more aware of the opportunities that exist in the industry in terms of entertainment, revenue and employment.
‘We are really pleased to be associated with WrB Africa, it’s a great event that the market demands and I’m excited at the opportunities that it will create for the Sub-Saharan gaming industry.’
