Welcome to the BiG Foundation Dinner
As a contribution to the society and in addition to the Malta iGaming Awards ceremony, the hosts have decided to co-organize a charity dinner, whereby all proceeds will be given to the Reaching Out and the Malta Community Chest Fund.
Right after today’s Affiliate & Adventure Dinner, scheduled and organized by Catena Media and Optimizer Invest, the program continues with the BiG Foundation’s great idea of dinner for charity.
Considering the fact that the Summit of iGaming Malta is organized in the country which is host to some 300 gaming companies with a workforce of over 10,000 people, high expectations from the fund-raiser are quite understandable.
As you may conclude, Day 1 at SiGMA 2017 will bring both excitement and true aid to the ones who need it most. The organizers have proudly announced that the president of Malta, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, is expected to come as the guest of honour.
It is evident that SiGMA truly “practice what they preach” and as such are able to justify their proclaimed eight pillars:
- Industry Trend
- Early Booking Rewarded
Join us tomorrow to read our Day 2 Report from SiGMA 2017 and stay tuned with the latest news from the iGaming universe. We’re eagerly expecting tonight’s grand finals at the Malta iGaming Awards and you will naturally be the first to know about the winners!
