Africa Gaming Expo to Address Thorny Concerns Faced by Operators

The first-ever Africa gaming conference and exhibition organized by Africans tagged Africa Gaming Expo (AGE) Lagos 2024 with the theme ‘Exploring the Future of Africa’s Gaming Market: Emerging Trends, Prospects and Opportunities’ is scheduled to hold at the Eko Convention Centre, Eko Hotels and Suites in Lagos, from March 12 to 15.

The gaming industry has not only become a major economic activity but also a strong thrust in the financial technology (fintech) evolution globally. This is largely underpinned by its nexus with entertainment and tourism. Equally, the gaming industry is of significant importance to the expansion of tourism and entertainment potentialities on the African continent.

Mr. Bashir Are, Chief Executive Officer of the Lagos State Lottery and Gaming Authority explained that AGE presents an unrivalled platform to bring together gaming operators (sports betting, lottery, and casinos), gaming regulators, African game developers, and other gaming stakeholders across the globe to discuss and examine the regulatory frameworks, emerging trends, challenges, opportunities, and prospects in the Africa gaming market.

AGE Lagos 2024 is conceived as a pivotal gathering that portends to foster and strengthen collaboration among leading stakeholders in the global gaming community. This conference is therefore a point of convergence and confluence for key players in the gaming industry across the world.

Are who is also chairman of the Federation of State Gaming Regulators of Nigeria, said that the main objective of AGE Lagos 2024, is to further propel vertical and horizontal synergy through the exchange of ideas and peer reviews among industry experts, leaders, and stakeholders within Africa and the global market. It will also address some of the thorny operational concerns faced by operators across Africa.

The Africa Gaming Expo is promoted by Africa Gaming Expo Limited and endorsed by The Federal Ministry of Tourism of Nigeria, Lagos State Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Botswana Gambling Authority, Ghana Gaming Commission, National Gambling Board of South Africa, International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA Africa), Lagos State Lotteries and Gaming Authority in collaboration with the Federation of State Gaming Regulators of Nigeria.

This inaugural edition of the expo is coming at a time when the gaming sector in Africa is facing exponential growth. It will be a veritable avenue for industry leaders, regulators, stakeholders from allied industries, and interested participants to discuss how to sustain the growth and ultimately seek options to develop and export African gaming platforms globally.
