SiGMA 2017 is the very first year where the organizers are embracing the challenges and opportunities of a global show, with growing interest from the heavyweights of the industry across continents. 250 sponsors and exhibitors, filling the largest venue in Malta, 6-7000 good quality attendees and over 150 speakers are expected this year at SiGMA, between the 22-25th November.
Some insane attractions for this year include:
• 1,000 Free Flights: Inspired by the movie 300, last year we gave 300 flights to affiliates. The initiative went down very well with affiliates and operators, so this year we’re stretching our budgets by inviting 500 NEW affiliates and also 500 top C level executives, mostly CTOs, CPOs, CEOs, COOs – to keep the B2B side of the business equally busy with a fresh bloodline of potential customers. Exhibitors are encouraged to invite VIP guests, flights on us, and throw a string of hospitality events around SiGMA. After all, Malta lends itself quite well for hospitality.
• SiGMA Startup Pitch: Our launch of the SiGMA startup pitch went really well, with some startups landing lucrative offers. We intend keeping our unique, swift format of a three minute presentation, followed by a seven minute grilling session with the investors. This year, however, we’ll invest heavily on this front by giving startups who qualify the possibility to, not only pitch, but also get exposure on our magazine, website, exhibit at the show at no cost. We will also offer office space t our new Gaming Hub, Msida Skatepark, Malta, for a full year to the top three startups who wish to use Malta as a base for business development or even relocation – the office space comes with full consultancy from a team of grizzled industry veterans.
• Vetting of Exhibitors: In an unprecedented move we’ve decided to team up with the most respected arbitrage out there to vet operators. Each operator that wants to buy stand space needs to be approved by at least two judges. We want affiliates to walk across the SiGMA floor plan knowing that all exhibiting operators are genuine, that the traffic sent to them will be handled well, that commissions are paid in full and in due time. We also want to offer a level playing field to operators – why should a law-abiding operator have to compete with a crook for traffic?
The above upgrades are a reflection that we’re putting the delegate, be it an affiliate, operator, B2B, startup, investor or other at the heart of every decision. “Enjoy Making Money” this November at SiGMA in Malta.
