|The organisers of London’s annual International Casino Expo (ICE), Clarion ATE, have announced its first conference on the African continent.|
Held in conjunction with Casino Association of South Africa (CASA), the African Gaming Summit will be held on September 5 and 6 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre and will provide a comprehensive view of what’s happening in African gaming and the chance to explore its myriad opportunities, whether for operation, supply, investment or partnership.
Derek Auret, CASA’s Chief Executive, explained, “Legalised and regulated gambling is a growing tendency in many regions of the world and Africa is certainly no exception,” he said.
“Investigating the opportunities that Africa may offer in this regard could be interesting and rewarding and the African Gaming Summit will offer an interesting forum for discussing this potential.”
The Summit will see speakers and delegates from South Africa along with other key African countries where casino and other forms of gaming are legal and some very interesting opportunities are emerging. Speakers confirmed thus far include Chris Fismer, National Gambling Board Of South Africa’s Chairman, Derek Auret, Brian Kantor, Investec Investment Strategist and Steve McCain, Bingo Association of South Africa’s Chairman.
The aim of the terrestrial conference is to give real insight into the casino sector in South Africa and other key countries and it will also look at other forms of legal gaming including sports betting, LPMs, bingo and lotteries.
In addition, River City Group is organising an iGaming conference to run alongside the Summit and registered delegates for either can attend sessions in both, giving them maximum information and access to professionals from all gaming sectors.
