The Healthcare Metaverse: The good, the bad, and the ugly
With the conferences for SiGMA, Affiliate Grand Slam, AIBC and Med-Tech World coming to a conclusive close, we can only thank the great minds and tireless hands of the many executives and speakers that made the event the success that it was.
SiGMA World celebrated the iGaming industry’s resilience even in the most troubling of times. With this we also congratulate the efforts made to make the iGaming world ethical, fraud-free and lawful.
Affiliate Grand Slam congratulated the brilliant marketers and influencers bringing much needed attention to a massive portfolio of industries and rejuvenating the economy one click at a time.
Finally, Med-Tech World united the medical professionals of many disciplines to combine their keen minds and inexhaustible passion for a better tomorrow with the entrepreneurial spirit of investors who also dream of a world free from disease and cancer.
The Week also saw many a networking dinner, speaking panel, drink gatherings and other opportunities for our hard-working delegates to unwind.
A few highlights include the awards that congratulated those whose dedication, skill and acumen made them a leading figure in their industry as well as the fact that the conferences where graced by titans such as John Karony, Nolan Bushnell, Djibril Cissé, Akon and Mark Blandford who was awarded an Outstanding Contribution of the Year award for his pioneering work in the iGaming industry. We also had the pleasure of organizing an exciting e-sports tournament where a number of top-tier teams competed in a climactic game of CS:GO as well as a crypto-network boat tour amongst so much more!!
We also would like to highlight the resilience of the event which neither rain nor sleet (nor one pesky fire) managed to dent the resolve of the conference or that of the organizers behind it. Our refusal to cancel the Med-Tech Awards out of respect towards the doctors and entrepreneurs who went above and beyond in their duties towards the Medical World was a decision that we feel should be noted.
A special thanks also goes out to the 400 speakers, 800 sponsors and exhibitors that formed the backbone of the events as well as the incredible support received from the government of Malta with the Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy personally visiting to endorse the conference due to the potential it presented both for the Isles of Malta and abroad. We also wanted to shed light on the many measures taken to make sure that the business leaders of tomorrow got their time in the limelight through start-up village and the many pitchfests dedicated to each vertical.
To conclude, we would like to thank you for being part of the journey and we are going to be more than glad to see that journey continue either in the lush greenery of Nairobi, near the gold-domed steeples of Kiev, the bright lights of a dusk Toronto skyline or anywhere else we sense potential. The future is bright and you won’t regret coming along for the ride.
