CasinoBeats Malta 2020 Turns Virtual

SBC Events has announced that its CasinoBeats Malta 2020 online casino conference and exhibition has now developed into CasinoBeats Malta Digital, a completely virtual three-day meeting, exhibition, and networking experience.

The physical event was due to take place in mid-June at InterContinental Malta, but with travel and movement constraints still impacting companies, it was turned into a multimedia event on the new dates from 30 June to 2 July.

Delivered in collaboration with GamingMalta, CasinoBeats Malta Digital will use the same state-of-the-art technology ecosystem that driven the successful SBC Digital Summit late April. CasinoBeats Malta Digital will replicate the key elements that make the gaming industry so important to physical trade shows and make them accessible to people around the world.

GamingMalta is an independent , non-profit foundation established by the Government of Malta and the MGA. Tasked with the task of promoting Malta as a centre of excellence in the global digital and remote gaming market, it is also responsible for liaising with the local authorities concerned to increase the attractiveness of Malta as a jurisdiction and enhance the ecosystem around the gaming industry.

GamingMalta Chief Operations Officer Ivan Filletti stated: “Via this collaboration with SBC, we are showcasing how Malta remains open for business, whilst celebrating the resilience of the igaming sector. The Maltese authorities’ efficient response to the COVID-19 pandemic has not gone unnoticed by international investors.

“CasinoBeats Malta Digital 2020 will be the ideal thought leadership platform to take stock of the current scenario of Malta and the international igaming industry, together with what is shaping the sector’s agenda. We are keen to use this platform to share with both the public and stakeholders why Malta is and remains the Home of Gaming Excellence.”

Delegates should look forward to a five-track conference featuring 120 high-level speakers from the online casino markets, slots, enforcement, affiliate marketing, and payments sharing their insights into the unique challenges of 2020 and thoughts about the industry’s long-term prospects.

At the 30 interactive booths in the virtual exhibition hall, they can also learn about the latest technologies from leading manufacturers, and make new connexions in the virtual networking lounge and special networking sessions based on common themes and market segments.

CasinoBeats managing director, Stewart Darkin said: “With the effects of the pandemic still being felt by businesses around the world and the gaming market in very different shape to the start of the year, it’s more important than ever for people in the industry to share knowledge and work together.

“CasinoBeats Malta Digital is the ideal platform for them to do it. We’ve had fantastic backing from the speakers, sponsors and exhibitors due to participate in the physical event and who see the potential offered by the virtual conference and exhibition format, not least from key partners such as GamingMalta and KPMG Malta. So, we’re looking forward to delivering a great event for the 3,000 delegates set to join us.”

The conference agenda includes panels that discuss how businesses coped with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the casino market and the next steps for the industry as the world recovers from the lockdown. This also features workshops addressing the issues of enforcement and payments that have emerged in recent months.
