The publication of new government measures for Malta’s entertainment scene, including the temporary closure of nightlife (bars, restaurants etc.) led to the postponement of the SiGMA Europe show which was to be held in Malta this April, and will be moved to November 16 -18 at the MFCC, Malta.
Malta’s Prime Minister Robert Abela announced that the government would be closing nightclubs, bars, and restaurants from March 5th until April 11th, after the number of cases for Covid-19 rose unexpectedly quickly. He also noted that organised events would be on hold, but that the government would continue to support businesses impacted by the measures.
Nonetheless, Abela emphasised his confidence in the future, pointing out the current rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine and reinforcing his commitment to continue working towards the country’s recovery.
SiGMA Group Founder Eman Pulis announcing the postponement of the event stated: “SiGMA in Malta was meant to happen this coming month in April, but with the new announcement that bars and restaurants will be closed until April, we were left with no choice but to push the show until November. We welcome this decision, we believe in the safety of all our delegates. There’s no SiGMA without restaurants, without bars – that’s where all the magic in business networking happens. I look forward to seeing you in November, save the dates – I’ll see you in Malta”.
In the run up to SiGMA Europe’s November show, the company has lined up a number of digital events under its Roadshow brand. The first stop in its global tour this year, Ukraine, attracted over two thousand delegates and reflects the success SiGMA has found through its virtual events.
SiGMA Europe runs from the 16th to 18th November 2021, and will be held at the MFCC, Malta. The super show embraces key verticals for the global gaming market through expert-led panels and keynotes and provides a direct line to some of the top brands in the business through its buzzing expo floor. SiGMA will also run alongside the company’s AIBC brand, boosting crossover opportunities for the emerging tech and gaming sector and offering increased investment opportunities.
SiGMA expo attracts delegates from over 80 countries, with the EU making up 63% of its guest list, followed by Asia, and the Americas.Follow us on
