ICE London 2023 will break the attendance record as exhibitors representing 68 countries have confirmed their participation, claimed Clarion Gaming, the event organizers in a press release.
Affirming is the Industry’s Most Popular Exhibition
ICE London, which will be held from February 9th to 9, 2023, will host 623 international exhibitors from 68 countries. ICE London 2020 featured 65 countries.
Stuart Hunter, Clarion Gaming’s managing Director, commented on the news and said that the event has grown tremendously over the years to achieve a level “no other gaming exhibition can reach anywhere near.”
Hunter stated that the industry’s interest in ICE London positions it as “a global experience with unparalleled access to the most innovative gaming innovations drawn from all corners of the globe.” He also said that there are only “very few exhibitions on a scale in any sector that can be compared to the event or claim to be world events.
ICE 2023, the largest B2B event in the gambling industry, will host game creators, distributors and operators, retailers, traders, strategic bodies, industry regulators , and all other gaming verticals.
The Week that Sets the Directions for the Year
Hunter said, “Research has shown that ICE and iGB affiliate London actually start on Sunday pre-ceding and end on Saturday.” Hunter shared the company’s estimates that “in that week,… more than 100 gambling industry events will occur outside of show hours, providing a compelling perspective on why ICE or iGB affiliate London are so important and influential to the global industry.”
Simon Thomas, executive chairman at The Hippodrome Casino, which is a member the ICE Ambassador Group, said that ICE was no longer a “three-day live event”.
The casino observed that the industry is arriving in London earlier and staying longer. ICE London was therefore “a full week” of intense networking, events and presentations, awards ceremonies, meetings and socializing.
Thomas said, “The incredible international credentials make it this coming together of buyers and games creators, influentialrs and thought leaders into What I would refer to as World Gaming Week,” connecting industry developments occurring over the year to conversations that took place during the week in London.
According to an earlier announcement by Clarion Gaming, ICE London 2023 will also include the largest Consumer Protection Zone.
