6th Annual Sports Betting West Africa Summit

Weekly Overview: East Meets West – SBEA SBWA 2020 Merger

By: Staff Writer at Eventus International

The year is almost at its end, and what a challenging year it has been! For many, this has been the most volatile year in history.

The 6th Annual Sports Betting West Africa (SBWA) Summit, which was due to take place in Lagos this November has been moved to take place on 7-9 December 2020 at Kampala Serena Hotel in Kampala, Uganda, alongside the 6th Annual Sports Betting East Africa (SBEA) Summit.

The decision to merge both events, SBEA and SBWA came after further discussion with our advisers and speakers in both Nigeria and Uganda. Given the circumstances, the mandatory 7 days self-isolation requirement to international travelers into Nigeria as mandated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, have made it impossible for most of our international participants to be attending the event in Lagos.

" The growth of the African gaming industry has been particularly exciting. With a combined SBWA and SBEA 2020 to be hosted in Kampala this year, it is going to be bigger and better than the previous editions and hence is a must-attend for anyone connected with the gaming industry." commented Alessandro Pizzolotto, CEO at Stm Gaming Ltd.

As organizers, we are in constant discussion with key industry stakeholders to adjust how we deliver an event with the highest possible output and greatest value. Our ultimate goal is to create a platform for gaming industry professionals to meet and share ideas for business growth, and this should be the majority of the entire travel experience for each.

Tayo Atoloye, Country Manager, Nigeria at Panserve, added: "The African gaming industry has grown tremendously in the last couple of years and Eventus International has contributed immensely to this growth by creating an umbrella under which regional discussions are being held to chart a pathway for proper understanding of the different territories in Africa, bringing together all the relevant stakeholders – regulators, operators, providers, and even punters, for the continued progress of the continent. The Sports Betting Regional Events has become a major schedule on the African gaming calendar. Looking forward to the next one in Kampala."

Since the 1st of October 2020, Entebbe International Airport has reopened to commercial travel, with all passengers required to present a negative COVID-19 test result from within 72 hours before boarding the aircraft. Those without a valid test result will be denied entry. Land borders have also reopened. There are currently no quarantine requirements in place in Uganda for new arrivals, making it much easier for internationals and surrounding countries to travel to Kampala for business purposes.

"SBWA and SBEA have in the past offered unraveled platform for iGaming operators in Africa to discuss challenges and profile innovative and lasting solution to the gaming industry. I am looking forward to this year’s merger and looking forward to explosive insight on how iGaming business should respond post COVID-19", said Solomon Godwin, Pragmatic Play Africa Continent Manager.

"The two Sports Betting events, SBWA and SBEA, have in the past offered much value to suppliers, operators, and regulators alike" said Devon Dalbock, GLI Africa’s General Manager. "I am looking forward to this year’s combined conference, and I have no doubt that all delegates will benefit from the interesting discussion topics and knowledgeable speakers."

The merge of Sports Betting East Africa and Sports Betting West Africa, will create a 3-day event offering more networking opportunities for all participants and at the same time offering more time to discuss pertinent topics on bothEast and West gaming ecosystems. We look forward to welcoming back our loyal and new participants to our first-ever Sports Betting East Africa and Sports Betting West Africa merger!

Topics of discussion will include:

What does the "new normal" for Africa’s sports betting look like post COVID-19?
