If the African gambling market forms part of your growth strategy in 2016, then World Regulatory Briefing Africa is the place to be.

World Regulatory Briefing highlights Africa’s Gaming potentialEveryone agrees gambling is on the rise in Africa. But like so many other parts of the world, it does have some hurdles that will need to be addressed, which is why Clarion Events organized the first-ever WrB Africa summit dedicated to exploring opportunities in the African emerging markets. The event is scheduled on April 11th to 12th at the Sheraton Lagos Hotel, Nigeria.

WrB Africa will offer superb networking opportunities, as well as featuring executive-led presentations and debate about a full range of topical issues on the continent from setting up a sportsbook in an African country to marketing and anti-money laundering legislation. Delegates will get to hear from more than 30 organizations and learn from companies based in East, West and Central Africa, in addition to regulators.

Representatives of the major iGaming companies in East, West and Central Africa, as well as the continent’s major regulators, will all be assembled under one roof.

“The Sub-Saharan gaming industry has witnessed an almost unrivaled growth in key regions such as Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania. Many feel that the key to the sustained growth and success of these markets is regulatory reform and foreign investment.” Curtis Roach, a producer at Clarion. “Over the next two days, WrB Africa will, for the first time, bring together leading lights in African regulation, Sub-Saharan operators and solutions providers from around the world to connect and build lasting relationships, driving the industry to its maximum potential.”

The speaker line-up includes a keynote speech by Lanre Gbajabiamila, CEO of the Lagos State Lottery Board. Other speakers include John Kamara, director of Global Gaming Africa; Tarimba Abbas, director general of Tanzania Gaming Board; Edward Lalumbe, COO of the Gauteng Gambling Board and Matthias Jacek Wojdyla, head of international affairs at FIFA.
