Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) will host co-founder of Apple and legendary Silicon Valley tech wizard Steve ‘Woz’ Wozniak in Malta at an event celebrating the company’s five-year anniversary.

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

As well as 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 revolutionised 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.

 “There are many people in Malta, including at GiG, who work in highly specialist technology roles. 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,” GiG’s CEO Robin Reed said.

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

GiG has an exciting growth story, having 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.
