Decision makers, thought leaders, legislators, key operators and the MVPs of sports betting and interactive gaming united at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, MA, USA, for the opening day of the inaugural ICE North America. The Clarion Gaming organised event, which features 42 exhibitors, 29 commercial sponsors and 200+ opinion-forming speakers, welcomed attendees to what is the biggest sports industry gathering in gaming on the exact one year anniversary of the repeal of PASPA.
Speaking at the official opening of ICE North America, Kate Chambers, Managing Director of Clarion Gaming said: “Wherever Clarion Gaming operates in the world we do so in partnership with the industry sectors that we set out to serve. The decision to consolidate our presence in the United States into a single event and broaden our remit to include the five verticals of Sports Betting, iGaming, Esports, iLottery and Affiliate Marketing, was taken after close consultation with stakeholders active in North America who told us that there was a need for a professional and, most importantly, for a trusted platform to help drive the future of gaming across the continent. As such, our vision is to ensure that the entire A-Z of the gaming ecosystem in North America will benefit from the reputation and influence of what is the world’s most successful gaming event brand. ICE North America will enable gaming brands to establish a competitive advantage in what is a tremendously dynamic market full of opportunities to collaborate across all of our five key verticals.”
She added: “Delegates invest a great amount of time attending the events organized by Clarion Gaming and it is our duty to deliver the very best market analysis and insight. Our speaker list reflects this and delegates can look forward to a disruptive learning and network experience that explores the key issues and topics from every perspective.
“Lastly I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to Roy Student who has served as Brand Ambassador to ICE North America. Not only has Roy built up an encyclopaedic knowledge of the industry, but he also shares our vision of what an event needs to deliver in order to be considered outstanding.”
