ICE is set to shape the industry

Kate Chambers highlights the participation of 557 regulators at the most important international gaming event of the year.

UK.- ICE Totally Gaming 2017 is ready to shape the future of the international gambling industry with the confirmation that over 557 regulators and legislators from jurisdictions around the globe will be attending this year’s event alongside CEOs representing every major gaming trade association in the world.

The most relevant event for the gaming industry expects to surpass last year’s record breaking of 28,487 visitors from 150 nations. ICE 2017 has already confirmed the representation of 67 jurisdictions and sovereign states on the floor from February 79 at ExCel convention centre in London. The participation of regulators of the industry will help to develop the international industry throughout the year.

Kate Chambers, Managing Director of the Gaming Division at Clarion Events, believes ICE has developed beyond being just the commercial hub for gaming.  She explained: “Naturally, the number one focus for everyone involved is the provision of a professional environment for the world’s top gaming innovators to meet with an international audience of buyers. But perhaps a side of ICE that goes largely unseen is the central role it plays in the strategic development of gaming.”

“This year we are hosting 101 VIP attendees at the annual Regulators Luncheon taking place alongside ICE and the World Regulatory Assembly which we are holding at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.  To have so many regulators and legislators networking, discussing policy and meeting with the industry has to contribute in the development and implementation of progressive and business friendly regulatory regimes. Added to this, ICE will host 51 CEOs from international industry bodies and trade associations, making it the most important meeting place in world gaming,” she added.
