Clarion Gaming has confirmed new April dates for its co-located ICE London, ICE VOX and iGB Affiliate London in-person events which will bring together over 700 exhibitors from 50+ countries in what constitutes the world’s biggest gathering of international gaming and gambling brands.
The ExCeL London will host ICE London across 12, 13 and 14 April with iGB Affiliate London taking place on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 April.
ICE VOX, incorporating the World Regulatory Briefing and the International Casino Conference, will be held 11 to 13 April.
Stuart Hunter, Managing Director, Clarion Gaming said: “Following consultation with our customers globally, market concern at the uncertainty caused by the Omicron variant and the primary objective of providing a safe and secure environment for visitors, exhibitors and venue staff we have secured new dates for ICE London, ICE VOX and iGB Affiliate London from the 11 to 14 April 2022.
“What for many buyers and brands is becoming the most influential week in world gaming succeeds in bringing together upwards of 700 exhibitors to the ExCeL London and I would like to pay tribute to the ExCeL senior management team which has worked tirelessly alongside us over the Christmas break in order to accommodate events of this magnitude and help us to deliver the best possible solution to our stakeholders.”
He added: “During all of our intensive discussions we have been resolute in our commitment to avoid a clash with the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention (April 19th -22nd) in Anaheim, California, USA and have been in close contact with colleagues at the National Indian Gaming Association who in turn have been extremely sensitive to the circumstances caused by the Omicron variant.
“Again, I would like to put on the record my thanks for their understanding and support. We will continue to work through any remaining challenges with all of our clients and stakeholders and support them with their preparations and planning for what is the world’s biggest and most influential gaming industry gathering.“
Naomi Barton, Portfolio Director responsible for iGB Affiliate London stated: “The experience of delivering iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam last autumn demonstrated how vitally important in-person events are and how they provide a focal point for everyone involved in the industry. I’m delighted that we have been able to secure new dates a little more than six months after our Amsterdam events. The focus now for my team is to build on the momentum of what was a record breaking show for the iGB brand, and consolidate its ‘best in class’ brand credentials by delivering the largest global igaming affiliate event this April”.
