To share some of the highlights from the 3 days, Eventus International prepared a brief summary of the conference proceedings for those not in attendance.

The first day took place in partnership with Eventus International’s supporting partners, the Association of Nigerian Bookmakers. The bustling traffic in Lagos did create a slight delay, but after 30 minutes the conference hall began to fill up. The welcoming address was delivered by the President of the Association Nigerian Bookmakers, Mr Akin Alabi. He thanked Eventus International for once again working with the Association to make an event as prestigious as possible and welcomed all in attendance with warm words.

Shortly after, the Director General of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission gave his keynote address on Outlining NLRC’ S Future Plans and Priorities for the Sports Betting Industry in Nigeria. The operators and fellow regulators were impressed with Mr. Gbajabiamila’s future plans for the Nigerian sports betting sector.
