The Board of Directors for the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has officially approved the strategic partnership proposal between SiGMA, ICE Asia and PAGCOR, confirming the huge Manila 2020 event.
“We are positive that our collaboration will encourage regional and international investment in the Philippines, and punctuate the presence of PAGCOR in the international gaming map,” a spokesperson for PAGCOR said.
The super expo, which will take place in Manila on June 8–9 next year, will be held at the SMX Convention Centre and the adjacent Conrad Hotel and is set to be one of the biggest and most anticipated gaming and blockchain events in Asia next year.
“There is strength in unity, and through this joining of forces, we hope to capitalise on the strong interest in Asia for iGaming and emerging technology. South-East Asia, especially Manila, has a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit, and there is growing value there, not just for companies seeking fresh opportunities in new jurisdictions but for the economic future of the region. We want to take an active, leading role in not only bringing the Asian and European community together but also in building long-lasting commercial opportunities,” SiGMA Group Founder and CEO, Eman Pulis said.
