Preparations for the 8th Annual BiG (Betting & iGaming) Africa Summit are well underway. Eventus International received interest from across the globe to participate in this highly anticipated 8th edition.

After the long absence of gaming events in Africa, the time has come to reconnect and nurture new relationships within the Africa gaming market.

Due to the changes of travel restrictions after the December holidays, the Eventus International team wants to ensure that BiG Africa Summit 2022 will be well attended, and therefore decided to move the event to 8 – 9 February 2022, allowing more time for countries to lower their restrictions for travel to South Africa.

International flights to and from South Africa, as well as domestic flights within the Republic, are permitted in terms of regulation 42 (

Though travel is allowed to and from South Africa, we want to ensure international attendance. By adjusting the event dates to February 2022, lowering of restrictions in other countries will become more possible within a month’s time, which will allow for larger international traffic to participate at the event”, said Yudi Soetjiptadi, Managing Director at Eventus International.

BiG Africa Summit taking place at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa, seeks to involve all African gaming stakeholders in providing an impressive exhibition floor, networking opportunities as well as the exchange of knowledge during conferences sessions.

The summit constitutes the optimal platform for gaining access to the gaming industry on the African continent – an event for gaming operators and suppliers to meet, as well as the opportunity to network with existing and potential clients and peers, to discuss the way forward in the “new normal”.

Join Eventus International as they reunite the Africa iGaming industry once more in South Africa! The event will strictly adhere to the prescribed safety regulations and protocols to ensure the well-being of all attendees. To book your pass to attend the event, visit:
