Malta: First Google Seminar In Malta To Set New Pace For Gaming And Creative Industries
Last Updated: 8 May 2015

Google has organised its first seminar in Malta, held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta to focus on the possibility of Google offering its service to companies operating in and from Malta.

The minister for the economy, investment and small business, Dr Chris Cardona was also present at the seminar and expressed his satisfaction with regards to Google's presence in Malta and the positive implications of this for the island. Dr Cardona further stated that Malta is willing and ready to play a central role in i-gaming and the creative industries.

Taking a look at the gaming industry in Malta, one can clearly see that along the past decade, this industry has become a stronghold for the Maltese economy and all the figures are pointing towards further growth. Over 8000 people are currently employed in the gaming sector, little less than 300 gaming companies are registered in Malta and the industry revenues are on the rise year after year.

This means that if Malta keeps abreast of what's happening in the industry and invests its efforts in the right opportunities, the figures and possibilities are sure to remain positive and plentiful. The recent restructuring and rebranding undergone by the Malta Gaming Authority mirrors this determination to move ahead in the right direction.

Dr Cardona emphasised on the importance of adopting a long-term vision and pointed out that Malta would like to maintain its relationship with Google, whilst encouraging companies within the gaming and creative industries to always remain adaptable in face of future challenges.

Enrico Bellini, senior analyst at Google said that following the support and interest with which Google's initiative was met by all industry stakeholders, public and private alike, Google is now looking forward to returning to Malta and organising another seminar later on this same year.

The main themes of the seminar were Google and innovation in digital gaming and the Google Cloud Platform. In view of Malta having recently placed second in IBM's Global Location Trends Report, it is legitimate to state that Malta is pro-actively seeking to establish itself as a pioneer in innovation and creativity.
