One of the most significant iGaming conference events in the world keeps travelling through 2023, with events lined up in The Philippines (19th - 22nd July), Cyprus (4th - 7th September), and Malta (13th- November 17th), adding to what has already been a cram-packed schedule.

Primarily a networking chance for casino and sportsbook operators to interact with state-of-the-art providers, services, and experiences, it also works as a collection of resources to help improve an iGaming business' online presence through metrics such as SEO optimisation, social media integration, and analytics monitoring.

Anyone who is anyone in the online gambling industry comes to SIGMA – it's the perfect opportunity to grow a business.
