Why SiGMA CIS/Balkans: Your gateway into the future of iGaming
Reading Time: 3 minutes


Premiering for the first time in the Balkans between the 22nd and the 25th of this month, SiGMA is a global leader in everything iGaming. Growing exponentially since its original debut in 2014 in the iGaming nexus of Malta, the Summit has become an international hub for iGaming operators, affiliates, innovators, investors and entrepreneurs. This article will cover some of the main reasons why SiGMA is the expo the Balkans have been looking for.

Why SiGMA: Global network with a start-up’s heart

Growing from a local iGaming conference in 2014 to amassing 13,500 delegates, 800 sponsors and exhibitors as well as 400 speakers under one roof, SiGMA is ever-growing but remains ever entrepreneurial.

Geographically, the Summit now debuts on all four corners of the globe. From snowy Toronto to shining Dubai, the industry-leading expo has hosted all the big players in every part of the iGaming ecosystem. Beyond that, our network of industrial leaders, serial entrepreneurs, consummate investors and inspiring thought-leaders have led the charge on the future of the industry though our keynote speeches and panel discussions.


Why SiGMA: A hub of innovation and enterprise

Going above and beyond the present of the iGaming industry, SiGMA is well-known for being proactive and future-focused. The summit includes a healthy presence of Deep Tech operators, innovative technologists and visionary founders ready, willing and able to use the cutting edge of Blockchain, AI, Quantum Computing and more. From Quantum-empowered esports betting to crypto payment providers, SiGMA has everything you need to stay above the competition.

With SiGMA’s sister-summit, the AIBC Summit, debuting in parallel to SiGMA in the same venue, the Deep Tech potential is boundless. Focusing mainly on Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence but expanding to include IoT, Quantum Computing and several others, AIBC is a networking hub and thought-leadership platform for anyone seeking to get their foot into tomorrow’s technology.

Why SIGMA: A platform for start-ups

Present in both SiGMA and AIBC Summits, our Start-Up Pitches combine the best showmanship in the industry with the leading visionaries of the iGaming and Deep Tech ecosystems. Creating a competition wherein the best 100 start-up applicants in each industry challenge each other for the grand prize of up to $500,000 in equity investment and a portfolio of fringe benefits.

SiGMA is also partnered with the ever-innovative UK-based Venture Capital firm, Ikigai Ventures. Having a physical presence at every summit, the Ikigai lounge is the place to meet the best investors in the space.

Why SiGMA: World-class media exposure

With our reach being global, our media presence is equally international with a broad array of thought-leaders, C-Suite executives and visionaries leading the industry forward. From premier podcasts to a spot in the globally renowned SiGMA magazine, participating in the Summit is a quick-fire way to grow far beyond the Balkans.


Driven forward by our elite in-house media team for videographers, content specialists, documentary makers and reporters, SiGMA has mastered the art of giving our sponsors, exhibitors and pioneers their time in the limelight.

Why SiGMA: Network with the best in the business

As the saying goes, your network is your net-worth. To that end, SiGMA is a leading connector as well as the place to be seen. Join networking dinners and investor brunches with some of the leading minds in the industry, our delegates never leave a summit without striking new partnerships or making friends in high places. From respected regulators to serial entrepreneurs calling the Summit home, come and grow your network with us!


If you want to celebrate in style, our world-renowned Awards Night is the place to be. Letting the best and brightest get their chance in the limelight, the Awards Night is both a brilliant platform for our industry leaders as well as an incredible marketing opportunity for sponsors.
