The BiG Africa 2016 Speaker List: Growing Ever Bigger and More Impressive

Excitement grows as BiG Africa 2016 signs Robin Le Prevost to its already impressive list of speakers.

BiG Africa, the Gaming industry’s premier and most influential opportunity to gather under one roof and exchange knowledge and experiences about the African Betting and iGaming markets, signs Robin Le Prevost, former Director for Business Development for the highly successful Alderney eGambling jurisdiction, and current head of the Le Prevost Consultancy in the UK, to its growing list of speakers.

The African Gaming industry is developing at a pace on the continent, bringing with it challenges and opportunities alike. In order for the industry to be a success, the commercial needs of online operators must marry and closely interlink with responsible and thorough regulation, which requires a high level of inter-regulatory co-operation. Hailed as a breakthrough in the regulation of eGambling legislation and often regarded by regulators as the benchmark across the globe, there is no better example than the Alderney framework to take key learnings from.

During Mr. Le Prevost’s time with Alderney Gambling, the jurisdiction grew to be the largest hub for offshore eGambling services globally. As the leading architect of the licensing regime which is now being replicated throughout the world, Robin brings to BiG Africa a wealth of knowledge with regards to the Alderney licensing regime, business strategy, regulatory relationships and frameworks, and high level management consultancy.

Taking place 24 – 26 October 2016 at the Century City Conference Centre and Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa, BiG Africa 2016 offers a unique platform for exhibitors, visitors, key industry operators, partners, suppliers, and legislators to congregate in an effort to capitalise on the growing and voracious consumer demand exhibited on the African continent.

Joining Mr Le Prevost on the speakers list, a number of prominent leaders and influencers in the Gaming industry including Craig Venter, CEO of ClickaBet, Geordin Hill-Lewis, DA Shadow Minister for the DTI, Andrew Dagnall, CEO of Bettorlogic in the UK, Edward Lalumbe, COO of the Gauteng Gambling Board, Alan Pedley, Principal Consultant at Governance Associates in Australia and Gail Petrie, Managing Director of Turfsport.

The line-up of show exhibitors and sponsors includes Betconstruct, Betgenius, Betradar, BetTech Gaming, BtoBet, GI Tech, Golden Race, Global Bet, Meridian, Mybet, Sirplay, South African Responsible Gambling Foundation, Turfsport, UB Gaming, World Sports Betting and more.

Aviation Africa 2017 Attracts Global Leaders & Companies
Feb 22 – Feb 23 all-day

Officially supported by Ministry of Infrastructure, Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority and RwandAir

AVIATION AFRICA 2017 will take place 22 & 23 February 2017 in Kigali, Rwanda.  The event is a two-day conference and exhibition focused on all aspects of the aviation industry including commercial, military, business, infrastructure, regulatory and safety.

The event is supported by the Rwandan Government, including the Ministry of Infrastructure, Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority and RwandAir.  Rwanda is fully committed to supporting Aviation Africa 2017 and ensuring that aviation related events grow in Rwanda. Speaking on behalf of Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority, Colonel Silas Udahemuka, Director General, said “Rwanda, a country of a thousand hills, is really excited to be hosting Aviation Africa in Kigali in 2017.  Aerospace and aviation are extremely important sectors for our country and we are investing heavily in this sector through our airline, airport infrastructure and our people.  We are confident that Aviation Africa will attract large numbers of participants and visitors through our invitation programme and look forward to welcoming the global aviation industry to Rwanda”.

aviation-africa-2015Why Rwanda? – Rwanda has a uniquely open visa policy for all African and international visitors, operating a visa-on-arrival service.  It has a strategic geographical location, a large investment in tourism and hospitality and high levels of security plus an aviation-friendly environment.

According to IATA’s latest forecast Rwanda is one of the 10 African countries who’s aviation market is expected to grow by 7-8 per cent each year on average over the next 20 years, doubling in size each decade.

For 2017, Times Aerospace, organisers of the event have announced that the independent Flight Operations Services Operator NEXUS will be the host sponsor.  NEXUS, which launched in 2010 and is based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia has opened a regional office in Rwanda and has already identified the opportunities the region can offer.    They will also participate in the exhibition along with companies who have already signed up early including Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation, Skyplan, EgyptAir Training Centre, Ethiopian Airlines MRO, Ethiopian Aviation Academy, Akagera Aviation and Aerotask.  The full list of exhibitors is available on the website.

Meanwhile the conference programme is already attracting big names with Girma Wake, Chairman of Board of Directors RwandAir and former CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Dr Elijah Chingosho, Chairman, AFRAA, Temel Kotil, CEO, Turkish Airlines and Jerome Maillet, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Congo Airways.

Flight safety and pilot evaluation are key topics for African aviation at this time of rapid growth and pilot shortages.  Addressing the issues will be former Tunisian Air force fighter pilot Samir Maktouf, now a professor of aviation studies in Florida and part of the Embry Riddle University aviation research team.  He will be looking at how African airlines and aircraft operators can reduce aviation incidents/accidents through better flight training.

Civil Aviation and airport chiefs from Zimbabwe, Rwanda, and Ghana will be looking at the infrastructure challenges that are holding Africa’s growth back while IATA’s African leadership as well as CANSO and ACI have been invited to give umbrella views on how the continent will press ahead over the next 20 years.

The event in 2017 will host over 50 global exhibitors and up to 500 delegates from across the African continent and the global aerospace industry who are looking to grow their business in Africa.  The event takes place at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Convention Centre in Kigali.
