Growing interest in the region
SiGMA Founder Eman Pulis explained why Dubai is such an important destination for the company, as well as on the growing interest in the gaming sector in the region.
“This is our third year in Dubai. The UAE is very dear to us because it has been most welcoming during our toughest moments with Covid. Thanks to Dubai, only did we not contract; we expanded outside Malta for the very first time in 2021.”
“The Government’s forward-thinking policies for frontier tech as well as Dubai’s unrivaled connectivity makes this place an ideal host to AIBC. With the first license being issued in RAK just recently, we also see increased interest in gaming activity in the region,” Pulis said.
