Gaming professionals from Brazil to Botswana, Germany to Ghana and Lithuania to Lesotho will be amongst the delegates expected at the inaugural Gaming Africa, Clarion Gaming’s two day conference and learning symposium being held across 24th and 25th October in Johannesburg.

Representatives from a total of 47 nations have registered to be part of the free to attend event, including 14 from the continent of Africa.  The full list of countries comprises: Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Botswana, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Grenada, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Lesotho, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Romania, Rwanda, Seychelles, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States and Uruguay.

African gaming expert, Roy Bannister is encouraged by the registration data.  He stated: “The tremendous support shown by African countries in supporting Clarion’s Gaming Africa event in October, underscores the faith and brand recognition that the world’s top event organiser brings to a fully-unified African gaming trade gathering. With top-tier delegate registration from 47 countries, many on the African continent, Gaming Africa is off to a flying start in finally offering the continent a world-class, professionally-run trade event. A brief look at the calibre of delegates — including regulators, operators, manufacturers and suppliers of gaming equipment and services and investors, not only from across Africa, but internationally – proves that Africa has sorely been in need of such an event, and most certainly bodes well for the future.”

Curtis Roach, Content Lead for Gaming Africa said: “Because training plays a vital role in raising standards and creating a professional and sustainable industry, we will be bringing the highly acclaimed ‘Totally Gaming Academy’ master classes to Johannesburg. Globally recognised experts Arjan Korstjens and Lee Richardson will be flying in to guide delegates through their specialist courses: Casino Marketing  and Online Sports Betting. These are being provided by Clarion Gaming on an entirely complimentary basis, giving delegates a saving of R15,000.”

Clarion Gaming’s decision to launch Gaming Africa followed requests from major industry players for a quality business-to-business event dedicated to meet the specific gaming needs of the continent. The Clarion organising team has experience working with the market having staged a highly successful World Regulatory Briefing (WrB) in Kenya earlier this year, which was preceded by WrB Nigeria in 2015.
