Decision follows WHO assessment of COVID-19 as a pandemic
SiGMA Group has decided to postpone the iGathering event planned to be held in Malta on 25th March 2020. Following the assessment by WHO that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic, the events group sees delaying the event as the only responsible course of action to ensure the health and safety of exhibitors, attendees, and SiGMA staff, as well as preventing any possible further spread of the virus.
Emphasising the broad interest received from SiGMA clients and partners, SiGMA Group is reassuring all parties that this exclusive event will still take place, but at a later date, when any potential threat from the spread of the virus is properly assuaged by relevant authorities.
In a statement by SiGMA Group it was noted, “With authorities advising restrictions on travel and public gatherings, it is our responsibility to uphold the measures being implemented to prevent the wider spread of COVID-19.
“While our Malta iGathering has garnered significant interest from our global audience, by delaying this event until a more appropriate time, we wish to reassure everyone both of our commitment to global health efforts, and of our commitment to our clients that the show will go on – just at a later date!”
Currently the group expects to reschedule the event for late June, with a confirmed date and invitations to be re-sent in coming days.
The event is planned to bring together more than 400 friends and leaders from the worlds of iGaming and blockchain to celebrate the global expansion of the SiGMA and AIBC Summits to a global audience.
