Clarion releases schedule for Gaming Africa Conference

15 September 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Clarion has published the Agenda for the inaugural Gaming Africa Conference, which is taking place from 24-25 October in Johannesburg. The agenda, for the free-to-attend business event, is available to download from the dedicated website.

Created as a networking opportunity for both the industry and its regulators to share knowledge and best practice, Gaming Africa will feature thought leaders including Edgar Agaba, CEO, Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board Uganda; Lanre Gbajabiamila, Director General, National Lottery Commission of Nigeria; James Mbalwe, Director General, Gaming Board of Tanzania and Jean Claude Mushmire, Head of the Services Industry Development Policy, Rwanda Ministry of Trade and Industry.

With learning modules covering the economy, payment methods, social responsibility, anti-money laundering, investment, public relations, regional roundtables and two master classes from the Totally Gaming Academy, covering Casino Marketing and Sportsbook Management, Gaming Africa has raised the bar in terms of delivering an event dedicated to meet the specific gaming needs of the continent.

Heralding the new event, African gaming expert, Roy Bannister, said, "I anticipate a lot of interest from international visitors looking to get in on the action in a jurisdiction that is pretty hot at the moment. One only needs to look at the trade press to see announcements of deals being done in Africa, new developments and advances in sports betting, payment technologies and mobile growth that is fuelling a lot of excitement about the continent. There is also interest from numerous African regulators wanting to understand how to more effectively regulate their industries, as well as manufacturers looking to place the latest gaming technology on the continent and enable operators to run profitable gaming ventures. Clarion will bring a professionally run gaming event to the African continent that will draw upon its international expertise and networking capabilities and allow a market crying out for a world class gathering to finally be able to convene on the African continent and, in the process, take the gaming industry to greater heights."

Curtis Roach, Content Lead for Gaming Africa, said, "It's fantastic to be working on Gaming Africa, as it brings a long-overdue event to arguably the most important and exciting region in the world for the future of gaming. My remit is to produce a forum that inspires, generates active discussion and provides invaluable ideas for delegates to take back to their organizations. Training plays a vital role in raising standards and creating a professional and sustainable industry. To satisfy this, we will be bringing the highly acclaimed Totally Gaming Academy master classes to Gaming Africa. Globally recognized experts Arjan Korstjens and Lee Richardson will be flying in to guide delegates through their specialist courses: Casino Marketing Academy, and Sportsbook Management Academy. These are being provided by Clarion Gaming on an entirely complimentary basis, saving R15,000.”

Clarion's decision to launch Gaming Africa follows requests from major industry players for a quality business-to-business event dedicated to meet the specific gaming needs of the continent. To download the Agenda and register, which is free to operators and regulators, visit the website.
