Ca­reers Con­ven­tion at the Sum­mit of iGam­ing Malta (SiGMA)

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

The Sum­mit of iGam­ing Malta has cre­ated a space at this year’s edition ded­i­cated to ca­reers within the iGam­ing in­dus­try. The Ca­reers Con­ven­tion is a di­rect re­sult of the grow­ing need to em­ploy the best tal­ent in the field. It will take place on day two of the sum­mit and will be open to grad­u­ates and IT devel­op­ers with a keen in­ter­est in a ca­reer in iGam­ing

The Ca­reers Con­ven­tion is aimed at grad­u­ates from the Univer­sity of Malta, MCAST and other pri­vate ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions. Part­ner­ships have al­ready been forged with stu­dent fac­ulty or­gan­i­sa­tions such as ICTSA, ELSA, ASCS, UESA, GHSL and oth­ers.

“It seemed fit­ting to in­tro­duce a ca­reers con­ven­tion this year to help meet the in­creas­ing de­mand for tal­ent”, said SiGMA man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Eman Pulis. SiGMA’s Den­nis Dhyr Hansen said: “It is well known that re­cruit­ment re­mains one of the trick­i­est as­pects of the gam­ing in­dus­try. This is where SiGMA can pro­vide an ex­cel­lent plat­form on the Mal­tese Is­lands.” James Cas­sar, Man­ag­ing Part­ner at SiGMA’s as­so­ci­ates, My event plan­ner, said: “Through this year’s event we want to cre­ate a bridge be­tween stu­dents and the bet­ting com­pany world, where great em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties ex­ist.”

The SiGMA or­gan­is­ers have lined up 100 speak­ers, 150 spon­sors and ex­hibitors and 3,000 at­ten­dees this year. Its over-arch­ing goal is to bring the en­tire gam­ing com­mu­nity to­gether, from af­fil­i­ates and op­er­a­tors to reg­u­la­tors and ven­dors and – this year – prospec­tive em­ploy­ees.

Stu­dents in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing the con­ven­tion can email reser­va­tions@sigma.com.mt to re­quest their in­vi­ta­tion, which in­cludes ac­cess to the expo floor, at­ten­dance at the Hu­man Cap­i­tal and Per­for­mance con­fer­ence, net­work­ing drinks and the clos­ing party. Any­one wish­ing to at­tend the en­tire sum­mit can reg­is­ter on­line to pur­chase their pass at https://mal­taigam­ing­sum­mit.com/. SiGMA takes place be­tween 16 and 19 Novem­ber 2016.
