In August 2022Christophe CasanovaHondré Gaming’s COO, and Co-Founder highlighted the vast growth potential of the iGaming industry in French-speaking Africa during an interview with Gamblingnews.com. Like many online gaming professionals, Casanova is confident that the region will experience exponential growth over the coming years. This means the time is ripe to enter and expand the iGaming industry in Francophone Africa. With this in mind, Eventus International, with more than a decade of experience in emerging iGaming markets, is hosting the Gaming Event Francophone Africa 2023 (GEFA 2023) to supply operators, providers, and investors with the insights and networking opportunities needed to succeed in French-speaking Africa.
