The gaming conference will take a look at how gambling efforts are developing across the continent

The Gaming Business Community (GBC) and SAGSE Talks are joining forces to hold an Africa-dedicated edition on July 14. This series will bring to the table conferences that will cover the most relevant topics in the industry. This African edition will also go over the best ways to enter into one of the markets that have been growing the most across the world. According to officials from SAGSE, this virtual summit will also focus on the different regulatory processes established across the continent.

“We are truly thankful for the support we have received from the Gaming Business Community (GBC). They are thoroughly familiar with the African market and we are confident that, together, we will be able to delve into its sustainable development,” said Alan Burak, Vice President of Monografie, organizers of SAGSE LatAm in Buenos Aires and the online edition of SAGSE Talks dedicated to Latin America.

One of the things that makes Africa a unique market is the fact that it is fully dependent on mobile devices. Mobiles are used for many things, such as identification, and, in some African countries, they are even used to vote. This special situation favors an industry where both regulators and companies can use this resource to create safer ecosystems with safer data management, as well as offer several new business opportunities for online operators.

“Africa is way ahead of many regions in terms of online and mobile devices. In most of the continent, the adoption of mobile devices and the use of 4G took place way before Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States,” said John Bamidele, founder of GBC.
