Gaming Africa, the new two-day conference organised by Clarion Gaming, welcomed many of the continent’s most distinguished thought leaders when it opened today (24 October) in Johannesburg.
Visitors from a total of 52 nations, including 16 from Africa, have registered to attend the inaugural event, which observers have described as representing a new dawn for the industry in Africa. Speaking at the pre-conference networking event, Curtis Roach, Clarion Gaming’s Senior Events Producer, said: “I have been in the privileged position of overseeing the development of Gaming Africa from drawing board concept to where we are today, a high profile platform for innovation, networking, thinking and insight, dedicated to the continent of Africa. Gaming Africa brings a long overdue event to what many industry leaders believe to be the most important and exciting region in world gaming.”
Created by the team responsible for ICE, ICE VOX and Juegos Miami, Gaming Africa features learning modules covering the economy, payment methods, social responsibility, anti-money laundering, investment, public relations, regional round tables and two training masterclasses delivered by the Totally Gaming Academy.
