SiGMA has undergone something of a transformation in recent years – the inaugural show in 2014 saw the company corner an untapped niche of opportunity within the local iGaming market. Buoyed by its early success, SiGMA expanded their operations for 2015, putting on a ground-breaking show and doubling their numbers. With attendance figures on the rise, 2017 marked an entry to Europe, but it was 2018 that saw them take the plunge and become a world-class event, with an elite selection of delegates, policy makers and thought leaders pouring in from across the globe.
It is this kind of international
support and interest that has helped propel SiGMA into truly becoming the
world’s iGaming village. Through a commitment to quality and years of
successful operations, SiGMA has nurtured the development of a strong brand,
allowing for its evolution into a global influencer on the iGaming world stage.
