Steve Wozniak, Co-founder of Apple, to visit Malta for GiG’s 5-year-anniversary event
Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), one of the island’s biggest iGaming employers, 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 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. 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 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.
