Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was the star at a recent Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) event, celebrating the firms five year anniversary.

Held at the InterContinental Arena in Malta, the “legendary Silicon Valley tech wizard” took to the stage with CEO Robin Reed for an educational fireside chat.

Kelly Kehn, Co-founder of All-in Diversity, an industry-driven initiative to benchmark diversity, equality and inclusion in iGaming, said: “In an industry where recruitment of top tech talent may be difficult, GiG is truly leading the way by opening up their awesomeness and sharing it with all of us. What an inspiring and engaging event for students, employees and the local community! More of this please.”

“What an inspiring and engaging event for students, employees and the local community,” added Kehn.

The audience of 1150 in attendance consisted of 650 GiG employees from Malta, Norway, Spain and Denmark as well as over 500 external guests who were given a free ticket by GiG, including individuals from UoM (University of Manchester), MCAST (Malta College of Arts Science and Technology) and Middlesex University students and professors, members of the Maltese tech community and high profile guests.

Chris Demico GiG Solutions Architect and former MCAST student, added: “I am really grateful to GiG for this wonderful opportunity of a lifetime. I got to meet one of my role models, talk to him and have him sign my books and my shirt. Today was a good day.”
