Eventus International’s inaugural Gaming Expo Francophone Africa (GEFA) will take place at the Casablanca Marriott Hotel, Morocco, between March 8 and 9.
The event will take a close look at strategies for growth and market development in Francophone Africa’s gaming sector.
A distinguished panel of speakers will kick off GEFA with discussions on the challenges, opportunities, and regulatory requirements for entering Francophone Africa’s gaming markets and assess the gaming landscape in various Francophone African countries.
The second day of the summit will cover technology trends, the latest online and mobile sports betting innovation, and future trends across the region.
Speakers include, Premierbet Chad sales coordinator Alexis Mbah Komangar, Melanin Games founder Annabel Ashalley Anthony, and Vlaemminck Law director of EU Affairs Beata Guzik.
Later in the month, between March 30 and 31, Eventus International’s 9th Annual Betting and iGaming Africa Summit will take place at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Speakers will include Bitville Holdings product and business development specialist Annalisa Naidoo, F9 Media Group founder Cameron Green and Trade and Industry, Democratic Alliance shadow minister Dean Macpherson.
The events take advantage of a growing African market, in which UK live betting content provider SIS (Sports Information Services) recently joined forces with African operator Jolibet to deliver its horse and greyhound racing content online on the African continent.
The deal is just one of many indicators that signals the rapid growth of the gaming market in Africa, which is set to reach a market value of $3bn by the end of this year and increase by more than 12% year-on-year between now and the end of the decade.
Elsewhere, global powerhouse live games provider TVBET, has partnered with South African company Bitville Gaming to expand into South Africa and deliver their products to the sports betting market in the region, which according to South African Responsible Gambling Foundation executive director Sibongile Simelane-Quntana has seen “significant growth” in online sports betting in the aftermath of pandemic-related lockdowns going into 2023 and beyond.
