However, more events in one go is something new even for us. This February, our expanded team went to Dubai, UAE, to attend two large and important conferences in a row: Affiliate World & Sigma Eurasia.

We’ll tell you how it was, what we learned and saw, and also share what is especially valuable to us at such events. Forward to the pages of memory!

  • A lot of cool first-hand insights that can only be obtained through networking in a natural and relaxed way.

Cons of the AW conference (UAE)

Practice has shown that all cons are rather shortcomings of the organization on the part of the participants. Since events that have been held for several years regularly work on mistakes, we will include the following points as specific features to consider:

  • This is a really BIG event. Take this into account and be prepared for stress due to a large number of people
  • There can be too many workshops, lectures, presentations, even at one time. Unfortunately, it is physically impossible to attend ALL useful and interesting events.

The most interesting news and topics at SiGMA Eurasia 2024 (Dubai)


Since SiGMA is generally an iGaming event, the topics of speeches, workshops, and other presentations were dedicated to this niche. Over two days, Dubai learned a lot of new things from key speakers, star-studded guests, and leading government officials.

  • Innovations in payment methods, cash points, and banking options across all the territories and in growing markets like Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America

Pros of SiGMA Eurasia Conference 2024 (Dubai)

The most impressive benefits of the event:

  • Scale. No need for any additional explanation — this is a huge specialized conference, at which anyone involved in the iGaming niche will be delighted with the amount of useful information
  • Free participation for affiliates. Every year the conference steadily increases the number of participants, not least thanks to free registration
  • High level of organization. There are a ton of quality micro-events within the conference, including parties and awards shows.

Cons of SiGMA Eurasia 2024 (UAE)

The controversial features of this conference can be safely duplicated from the previous event:

  • You have to carefully choose the shows you want to attend as there are too many to attend at once
  • The main topic is dedicated to one niche — for some this may be a minus. On the other hand, if this niche is yours, you are guaranteed to make useful contacts and learn a lot of new things.

p.s.: participation insights

Our teammates, especially those new to attending conferences, noted the undoubted advantages of major industry events:

  • After conferences of this scale, your 1-minute self-introduction skill will be boosted to the skies
  • You will learn a lot of unique info about opportunities, trends, etc., so your horizons will broaden
  • You can gain personal contacts of managers in companies you are interested in cooperation with.

No surprise, we have also faced some difficulties! Here are some thoughts of possible use if you are to visit such an event for the first time:

  • In a huge flow of participants, you will definitely spend valuable time communicating with non-target contacts. It’s ok, just take your time
  • You need to prepare for the conference like for a marathon, so that you are in good physical well-being and mentally focused headspace in order to get the most from this experience
  • You will have to choose between walking around the conference site, attending speaker performances and panels, pre- and after-parties
  • It would be good to study the participants’ list in advance and make a plan of communications; make appointments. Take care of a system for organizing contacts and information received, otherwise after the conference you will drown, sorting out business cards and notes
  • After the conference, you will also have extensive homework to do: sort out all your contacts, write to everyone to continue the conversations started at the conference and get the most out of every acquaintance
  • Don’t forget to have fun: networking is all in all about fulfilling your heart and mind with inspiration!
