SiGMA plans to hold the biggest gaming festival in Dubai Festival City in the UAE this year, pioneering the gaming industry in the region and hosting big names such as Play’NGo, the great minds behind some of our favourite slots، such as Book of Dead.
The SiGMA Conference in Asia would aim to bring together pioneers from all over Asia and the rest of the world, as countries all the way from the Gulf to the South Asian States are working to become a part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As iGaming is becoming an increasingly important sector in countries like Japan and the Philippines, the conference would bring together innovators from all over the continent.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has outlined in its Vision 2021 document its desire to create an economy driven by innovation and advancement.
Keeping this information in mind, a shrewd investor would look for ways to become a part of this new era of online gaming, technical advancement, and economic revitalization.
In addition to spotlighting some of the most intriguing and creative projects that aim to change the face of the sphere, the Eurasia Awards will also feature an art auction, with all of the proceeds going to the SiGMA Foundation.
SiGMA is putting its weight behind up-and-coming entrepreneurs by assisting emerging businesses and facilitating connections between those businesses, investors, and mentors.
The next iteration of the SiGMA Pitch competition is coming back for another round after having a very successful run. Over one hundred new businesses will be given the opportunity to present their services and programs during the course of the event. At SiGMA, each new company will have a booth that is surrounded by prominent investors and mentors.
However, only the top six companies, as chosen by the judges, will advance to the Pitch portion of the final leg of the summit. This places those companies in contention for potentially obtaining substantial equity investment.
The investment prize pool will be granted based on the startup deck, and at the discretion of the organizers, with awards ranging in value from up to, but not beyond, €500,000 in equity investment. Prizes will be awarded at the discretion of the organizers. Participants can increase their chances of being selected as one of the top 100 participants by submitting a video introduction that is at least three minutes long.
This event pioneers the casino industry in the United Arab Emirates and is the first of its kind in the entire region; and will make way for the online casino as well as the brick-and-mortar casino industries to thrive in the Arab Gulf.
