The new Malta office will enable Soft2Bet to welcome more team members and handle its corporate expansion in the best conditions.

Soft2Bet, a leading casino and sportsbook operator and platform provider, announces an important growth milestone – the official opening of its new offices in The Quad Central business center, one of Malta’s latest and most modern business complexes.
Situated in the centre of the island, Soft2Bet’s new office was officially inaugurated on 28 March in the presence of the Hon. Silvio Schembri, Malta’s Minister for Economy, Enterprise and Strategic Projects, Ivan Filletti, CEO of Gaming Malta and Soft2Bet’s long-term partners based on the Island.

Minister for Economy, Enterprise and Strategic Projects, Silvio Schembri said: “It is an honour for us to be here because Soft2Bet shows what we believe in as a country and as a government. The perseverance of a company starting from a small office in Sliema, just a few years ago employing less than 5 people, and in just a few years within the land of opportunity, they became one of the most important gaming companies in Malta, acquiring 2 floors and another 2 floors in this iconic building in Malta, employing more than 130 people from different nationalities. Malta is not just an island, is not just a place where you work, it’s a home, home for you and even for us to be able to not only accommodate but to be able to share the experiences with all of you here. Your success is our success.”

  • Could you provide an overview of the upcoming Next.io summit in May?

We are hosting our 4th annual NEXT.io event in Valletta on 15 – 16 May. With a global delegation of 5,000 attendees, Valletta’24 is more than just a conference; it’s where groundbreaking ideas and innovations converge. In addition to the leadership stage, we host several side tracks on marketing, investment, HR, sustainability, technology, emerging markets/jurisdictions – plus a new track on personal development. As we expect over 5,000 attendees, we have also increased our networking space with a new hall dedicated to more exhibitors, entertainment area, lunch, and a chill-out zone. Finally, our recent partnership with Ask Gamblers will ensure greater affiliates and operators in attendance, so as you can see there is definitely something for everyone and the event promises to be one of endless connections and activities.

 

  • What speakers or panelists can attendees expect to hear from during the summit?

We have tailored the event to make this event the pinnacle of the iGaming industry, offering unparalleled networking opportunities and insights from 300 industry-leading voices. We have many c-level speakers attending including Angus Nisbet, VP Gaming, BetMGM, gaming industry expert Paris Smith, Lahcene Merzoug, CEO. PressEnter, Francesco Postiglione, CEO, Casumo, Martina Akerlund, CEO, CallsU, Jeffrey Haas, Chief Growth Officer, William Hill, Todd Haushalter, CPO, Evolution Group, Tim Heath, General Partner, Yolo Investments plus an amazing keynote to kick off the start the event. We have two amazing keynotes to kick-start day 1 and 2 of the event, so I urge you to check out our agenda via

 

  • Can you share any insights into the format of sessions and discussions planned for the summit?

We like to change the formats and concepts up at NEXT.io compared to the norm that you see at other organisers. For instance, we base our talks at 30mins max to ensure that it is short and sharp straight to the point discussions and a limited number of speakers on each session so that more interactive discussion and debate can be had. We also are putting the CEOs under the spotlight this year – think Mastermind – with each CEO – one by one – under a “spotlight” for 10mins with direct questioning from the host. Should be awesome and insightful.

  • How does Next.io ensure diversity and inclusivity in the selection of speakers and participants for its summits?

Internally we take an active stance to ensure that there is a cross selection of speakers to this regard based on our own internal metrics. Wherever possible we encourage new speakers to be put forward by their organisations or through connections that we make – this allows for new and different perspectives on the discussion to hand which make the event and tracks interesting and informative for the audience.

 

  • What unique networking or collaboration opportunities will be available to participants during the event?

For two years ago we have designed NEXT.io Valletta to be a festival week of iGaming, encouraging people to arrive for the week to take part in our activities we have on the Monday and Tuesday before attending the event on Wednesday. This year we have Golf, Padel, Run Club plus many networking events taking place from Tuesday through to Friday night, so check out the website where you will be able to find more information.

 

  • How does Next.io leverage technology or innovation to enhance the summit experience for attendees, whether in-person or virtual?

We have a unique advantage hosting the event at the MCC in that the main stage is built like a theatre – so with use of such a big stage we can use LED screens which allow for animation and interaction on screen as well as several attendee applications which ensures they get directly involved with what session is taking place and have an input into the direction of the questioning.

 

  • What motivated Next.io to choose Malta as the location?

NEXT.io head office is based in Malta, so it felt a natural fit to organise our flagship event within the country and at one of Malta’s iconic venues – The Mediterranean Conference Centre – with epic views over the harbour and Mediterranean Sea. When NEXT.io was formed the company had amazing support from the Maltese Gaming Authority who backed us at the time and so since day one we continue to use Malta to host what we feel is becoming an event on everyone’s calendars.

 

  • How does Next.io ensure that its summits provide a platform for emerging voices and perspectives alongside established leaders and experts?

As mentioned previously we like to continuously promote not only the established experts but also the leaders of tomorrow. Our Advisory Board is instrumental in that regards as they also have an ear to the ground as to whom is best to suggest for topics and discussions. I think what works best is a mix of experience and new to crate that interesting discussion on stage.

  • How does Next.io plan to capture and share the insights and outcomes from the Malta summit to extend its impact beyond the event itself?

We record our main stage sessions and use this through our awesome marketing to promote the event long after it is over via access on our news part of the website. In fact, we never see an event having an “end” more of a continuation to the next show as we promote what was and what is new for the following year. Continuous dialogue with our audience and clients is important to ensure consistent messaging and allows us to react to what market forces are in play at the time.

Play’n GO, the world’s leading casino entertainment provider, has today announced that the world of motor-racing will descend on Malta with an appearance at the Next: Valletta event by MoneyGram Haas F1 Team drivers Nico Hülkenberg and Kevin Magnussen.

In an industry first the drivers, who both have scored points in races already this season, will be joined by Team Principal Ayao Komatsu on 15th May in the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Malta.

The appearance follows the Swedish gaming giant’s announcement late last year that it had agreed to a multi-year sponsorship deal with the American team, and this will be the first driver appearance initiated by that sponsorship.

Hülkenberg and Magnussen take to the stage at Next.io’s Valletta showcase as part of a Play’n GO-sponsored panel, along with leading media personality Natalie Pinkham, for a live Q&A session ahead of their race in Imola on 19th May.

Following a private event with Play’n GO partners on the evening of the 14th May, the drivers will take to the stage in Valletta. Here, they will give a unique insight into the day-to-day life of a motorsport athlete, their hopes for the rest of the season, and some predictions for the following weekend’s race at the legendary track in Northern Italy.

Play’n GO and MoneyGram Haas F1 Team have worked closely together since the announcement of their multi-year partnership last November, and this appearance from the Team’s drivers and Team Principal brings the collaboration to life in front of an industry in-person audience for the first time.

Ebba Arnred, CMO and Co-Founder of Play’n GO said: “We’re very excited to bring the world of motor racing to Malta with MoneyGram Haas F1 Team, and we’re so proud to have Kevin, Nico, and Ayao on the ground as part of the Play’n GO team at Next: Valletta.

“We always felt that MoneyGram Haas F1 Team were perfect partners to continue to propel our brand further than ever before, and we can’t wait to show the best of this partnership next month. Both Play’n GO and MoneyGram Haas F1 Team have a shared vision of sustainability, innovation, and entertainment in our respective industries, and we look forward to many years of working together to achieve those goals.”
