Clarion Gaming Lays Down Details On ICE Africa 2018

Clarion Gaming revealed that Africa will also host a conference similar to ICE London beginning next year.

After the successful run of Gaming Africa, Clarion announced that it will take ICE Totally Gaming to the said region to create a venue where industry leaders, experts, and innovators—including those from the Bitcoin casino sector—can showcase products, share ideas, and build new networks.

How ICE Africa 2018 came to life

Clarion Gaming announces ICE Africa 2018 after successful Gaming AfricaClarion Events may soon have its popular ICE-branded conference in Africa next year. According to Kate Chambers, managing director of Clarion Gaming, the company took the strategic decision of fast-tracking the gaming industry in Africa.

She said:

“We launched in Africa following requests from the industry for us to develop and organise a professional showcase that Africa could be proud of.  We applied the same level of attention to detail that goes into delivering ICE in London and, with the support of the industry, I am delighted to confirm that we will be delivering ICE Africa in October 2018.”

The first ICE event in Africa, however, will not have the same scale as its London counterpart. But ICE will still provide the same quality sessions, exhibits, and networking opportunities enjoyed in the London conference.

Chamers added:

“ICE Africa will be an event where the industry can meet, network, see the very latest gaming innovations, share best practice and progress in a strategic and sustainable manner.  The ICE Africa team is already in place and working with our stakeholders in order to deliver on our pledge to create a world class business event for the continent.”

Industry leaders excited for ICE Africa

The recently announced ICE Africa can bring the global market’s attention to the South African region. The conference can create a platform for delegates in more than 150 countries to meet with people in the African market.

Rudie Putter, general manager of AVANI Windhoek Hotel & Casino, said:

“The gaming industry worldwide has a lot of commonalities and in many respects faces similar challenges, but in the same vein every country has a unique market and unique needs.  As such, I see great value and potential for a platform that is regionalised and a lot more in sync with our market and operating dynamics.  I am very much looking forward to an event for Africa that from a cost perspective will enable us operators to expose a larger number of our staff to the networking and product exhibition possibilities on offer.”

Meanwhile, Zeena Rossouw, compliance manager of Azure Gaming Africa, said:

“Learning new things and meeting people who will help you do your job easier is so important towards development.  So I am delighted to hear that Clarion are bringing ICE to Africa and cannot wait to join again next year.”
