A Happy New Year’s eve from the SiGMA Group to you
With the year 2021 coming to a close, we can safely say that it has been a very eventful year for the industry and beyond. With the pandemic pushing digitalization forward exponentially and the recent announcement of the Metaverse, the future of digital marketing is going to be anything but boring!
With Malta Week 2021 combining all of our verticals into a single jam-packed week, the island became a hub for industry leaders in iGaming, online marketing, emerging technologies and medical-tech. Following the Dubai Summit in May, Malta Week’s AGS conference sought to go over and above in treating our global audience to a summit they won’t easily forget. Drawing titans such as Michael Saylor, John Karony, Nolan Bushnell, Akon and many many more, the expo floor was full to the brim with fire-side chats, networking events, discussion panels. Punctuated by keynote speeches from the best in the business, the week boasted an attendance of 13,500 delegates from across the globe, reflecting the truly world-wide presence of the industry and its pivotal role in connecting every corner of the global economy together.
The AGS startup pitch allowed a lucky winner from a pool of ten selected participants and a hundred startups booths to win up to €500,000 as well as a package of anything an enterprising start-up would need including consulting services and lead strategies. HyperSKU took home the grand prize after pitching their idea to our shrewd panel of investors. Celebrating their win, VP Business Development Executive Simon de Raadt stated that “We are ten out of a hundred companies chosen to pitch their dream, their momentum on stage, and it feels amazing to be selected as the best one. From this opportunity I saw investors are individuals who have really made it in the industry so they know what they are talking about. I really want to thank SiGMA for the opportunity. It’s great to be in Malta and having the guts to actually host an offline event during these times so congrats to SiGMA.”
The AGS Awards let the movers and shakers of the industry have their time in the spotlight for their contributions to an ever growing and ever ambitious industry. Celebrating in true SiGMA style, our participants were treated to a lavish night at SkyClub. With Trudy Kerr and Dave Crane hosting, the pioneers of digital marketing and affiliation were awarded for their work in pushing the industry forward.
To our delegates hungry for more, we would love to meet you again under the bright lights of Dubai’s stellar skyline. Already gearing up for AGS Dubai in March, we promise to make it one of the highlights of the year and the perfect opportunity to meet new clients, forge partnerships and share your brand with a lucky audience.
Finally, we would like to thank you. Our events are always made with our delegates in mind and you never disappoint, always managing to make the expo floor thrive with new ideas and new opportunities. It’s always been a pleasure working with all of you and we would love to see that extend into the future. Till then, happy holidays and have a lovely new years eve.
