he first leg of this premier networking event brought together suppliers, affiliates and operators to forge new relationships in the fast-growing Asian market.
"We came to Manila, first of all, to learn more about this vibrant city and the government’s initiatives through PAGCOR for the Asian region. New friendships were born and strategic partnerships cemented in this vibrant region," Eman Pulis, SiGMA’s founder and CEO, commented.
Held at the luxe Shangri-La at the Fort hotel in Manila’s Bonifacio Global City area, the buzzing financial and business metropolis connected some of the top western suppliers with a total of 400 premium Asian affiliates and operators.
The two-day event provided top-notch conferences and a plethora of new opportunities for handshake deals in the fast-growing Asian market, opening doors to favorable business circumstances for European operators and suppliers looking to tap into Asia.
"I really like the work SiGMA is doing, you guys produced a great three-day-event in Manila, both business and party-wise!" enthused Oron Barber, CEO and Founder at CoinPoint Group.

Following a series of well-attended conferences, delegates were treated to a series of lavish, no-expense-spared dinners and a chance to explore the city for some after-dark fun.
Rene Robitza, Head of Affiliates at Glitnor, had high praise for SiGMA, saying, "The choice to host the conference in Manila was the best decision ever. Fantastic organisation from SiGMA, we made contacts we would never have met in Europe and countless new opportunities. Pretty sure Glitnor Affiliates will host again. Well done SiGMA!"
