Malta iGaming Seminar Planned

Planning for the seventh annual Malta iGaming Seminar (MiGS) was launched on July 30 by Jose Herrera, parliamentary secretary of competitiveness and economic growth, and Joseph Cuschieri, executive chairman of the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), at the Mistral Suite and Terrace at the Marina Hotel Corinthia Beach resort. This year’s MiGS will be held at the Corinthia Hotel, St. Julian’s November 16-19.

“Founded in 2008, today MiGS has become globally recognized as a must-attend conference on the iGaming calendar,” said Jeffrey Buttigieg, director of MiGS and COO of RE/MAX Malta. “Over the last two years, the event has seen a transformation and has matured into a top-10 event, as quoted by, a major iGaming online portal. Last year, the event was especially successful as we attracted over 450 delegates to MiGS14, and we started seeing the fruit of our labor during the previous five years.”

One of the highlights of the upcoming event in November will be a panel that will include four pioneers of the industry. The event will also expound on a number of ensuing topics, including the latest EU directives, emerging jurisdictions, payment and advocacy, as well as subjects of potential growth including mobile gaming, eSports and others.

In 2015, MiGS will be introducing a concept called “fishbowl conversations” which entices the delegates to get closer to the speakers, ask questions and become moderators, therefore providing a new dimension of interactivity and fun to the conference. Buttigieg confirmed that every speaker will be an authority in their field, and the tight-knit networking, which MiGS is renowned for, will continue to be a mainstay of the 2015 event.
