Apple co-founder Steve ‘Woz’ Wozniak set for Malta gaming event

Steve Wozniak, Co-founder of Apple, to visit Malta for GiG’s five-year anniversary event

One of Malta’s biggest iGaming employers will host co-founder of Apple and legendary Silicon Valley tech wizard Steve ‘Woz’ Wozniak at an event celebrating the company’s five year anniversary.

Gaming Innovation Group (GiG)’s annual employee conference ‘Gigsters Connect’, will take place on 6 & 7 March for all 650 GiG employees – including over 200 who will travel from Spain, Denmark and Norway to join their Malta based colleagues.

Apart from meetings, hackathons, parties and learning opportunities, there will be a ‘fireside chat’ and open audience Q&A with Woz. Attendees will hear about Apple's humble beginnings and how Woz revolutionized the status quo by inventing the impossible.

GiG will also invite over 400 university and MCAST tech students, developers, start-ups, entrepreneurs, and some members of the business community in Malta to the session with Apple’s co-founder. 

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate five successful years of our company than by giving our employees and 400 of the Maltese tech community the opportunity to be inspired by Woz, a pioneer of technology,” said GIG CEO Robin Reed.

Engineering genius Steve Wozniak founded Apple Inc. with Steve Jobs. As a pioneer of the personal computer revolution, Steve Wozniak single-handedly built the first Apple computer prototype.

GiG has just announced all time high quarterly revenues of €39.9 million in Q4 of 2017, and is planning to enter the regulated US market after signing a new partnership with Hard Rock International to deliver their first online casino.
