The virtual conference and exhibition on October 7 – 8 is free to attend, providing an opportunity for everyone interested in the region to learn from 60 senior executive speakers with hands-on experience working in African markets.

Sessions include a review of developments in East Africa, an in-depth look at regulation in West Africa and an assessment of whether South Africa’s regulatory framework is the right model to emulate its neighbours.

The day also has sessions about online casino prospects, payment innovations, lotteries, developing tailor-made marketing strategies for local markets, and whether the European affiliation model in Africa can be effective.

The track for Day Two is Betting on Sports, which will take a detailed look at the landscape for betting on football, horse racing, rugby , cricket and sports, and how sportsbook operators can develop attractive offers for African markets.

In addition, a panel will be held to analyse the rapidly changing profile of African sports consumers, along with sessions focusing on problem gambling prevention, the future of retail betting and the technical challenges facing suppliers working in the region.

The SBC Digital Summit Africa speaker line-up is due to be announced shortly.

SBC Founder and CEO Rasmus Sojmark stated: “Africa is home to some of the most exciting emerging markets in the world, and international betting & gaming operators, affiliates and suppliers are eager to learn more about the opportunities available.

“For our first ever dedicated African event, we have compiled a conference agenda that will deliver valuable insights about doing business in the different territories in the region, examining both the challenges faced by new entrants to the markets and the successes of the established local operators.”
