The Sports Betting East Africa Summit 2024: Day One

The air crackled with anticipation as the Sports Betting East Africa Summit kicked off yesterday at the beautiful Kabira Country Club in Kampala.

Palm trees swayed gently, the sun dipped towards the horizon, and the unmistakable buzz of excitement filled the air. This wasn’t just any conference; it was a gathering of the brightest minds in the African sports betting industry, all united by a common passion for the future of gaming.

Buffalo Consultants Ltd, always eager to be at the forefront of industry trends, was proudly represented by our very own head of marketing, Nasif K Balinda. The day began at 3pm with a warm welcome from the Eventus team, their smiles as bright as the Ugandan sunshine. The professional casual dress code added a touch of elegance to the scene, with everyone dressed to impress.

And impress they did! The first panel discussion, “How cross-industry collaboration can supercharge diversity, inclusion, and expansion in igaming and sports betting“, was a lively and thought-provoking exchange. Purity Wahiu, operations manager of Palms Bet, and Klaire Murithi, former head of marketing at Betika Kenya, shared their insights with a captivated audience, expertly moderated by the dynamic Faith Ahurira, Women in Gaming ambassador in Uganda. Their discussion highlighted the vital role collaboration plays in fostering a more inclusive and diverse gaming landscape, and how it can fuel the industry’s growth in the region.

The energy continued to soar with a thrilling lucky draw, injecting a dose of friendly competition into the mix. But the highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the celebration of women in gaming. This dedicated segment served as a powerful reminder of the growing role women play in shaping the future of the industry, and showcased their contributions to its success.

As the sun set, transforming the poolside into a magical backdrop, the official party commenced. The sound of laughter mingled with the clinking of glasses, while vibrant conversations flowed like the canapés. This was the perfect opportunity to forge new connections, reconnect with old friends, and network with the best and brightest the industry has to offer.

And now, as day two dawns, the excitement is palpable. The schedule is packed with must-attend panel discussions from top industry professionals, offering invaluable insights and perspectives. And we’re all eagerly awaiting the awards ceremony, where Buffalo Consultants Ltd is nominated for the coveted Outstanding Consultant Award!
