The organisers of ICE London, Clarion, have announced that they have decided to push back the event until next summer. This is due to the ongoing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the worldwide economy and also the international travel restrictions currently implemented. It is the second time the event has been rescheduled as it was first set to be held as normal in February 2021, then moved to April 2021 and now it will be in the summer.
What is ICE London?
ICE London is an event that takes place around February time each year and brings together solutions providers and gaming professionals from all sectors of this global gambling industry. Here, you can get an idea of what the future of gaming is going to look like, what new slots are on the horizon, what new features they might have and so on. Because it attracts professionals across the industry, it is the perfect place to drive revenue through networking opportunities and meetings and get your products noticed.
More Details on the Ice London Event in Summer 2021
The London ExCeL event will now be taking place from Tuesday, June 29th to Thursday, July 1st. Furthermore, the iGB Affiliate London Conference will also be held immediately after, on July 1st and July 2nd. Not only has the iGB London event been pushed back but the iGB Amsterdam event has also been moved in the wake of this news.
What Have the ICE London Event Organisers Said?
The managing director of Clarion Gaming, the organiser of this event, Kate Chambers, stated that due to the ongoing pandemic and continuing uncertainty in the market, moving the event to summer 2021 is an absolute necessity. This decision was taken after close consultation with the international community of stakeholders as recovery time is needed around the world plus there are still many regulations in place that prohibit international business travel. This decision was also made after the UK government announced that new restriction measures were coming into place.
However, it is not all bad news as the event organisers have said that this will give them time to enable the very best space configurations and accessibility at ExCeL London.
