Once again, I would like to extend a
warm welcome to our many thousands
of guests from throughout the world
who have travelled to be with us at
ICE London, the most international
gathering of gaming professionals
on the industry calendar.
It’s humbling to reflect that an amazing 151 nations and
sovereign states were represented at ICE 2017. As an
organising team, we recognise the huge responsibility
we have to deliver a world class event for what is,
literally, a world-class audience. Wherever Clarion
Gaming operates in the world, we ensure that we work
in partnership with our stakeholders in order to deliver
professional events that the industry needs in order to
meet its business objectives over the short-, medium-
Some of the stand-out characteristics of the ICE
experience relates to the quality, quantity and breadth
of the international innovators who exhibit and who
choose to launch their latest products and services
in London. Visitors make the journey to ICE London
secure in the knowledge that the ground-breaking,
game-changing innovations everyone seeks will be
found among the 500+ exhibitors occupying the record
43,500sqm of net stand space here at ExCeL London.
Quite simply, if it’s new, you will find it here at ICE.
Some of those innovations will no doubt be found in the
ICE Payment Solutions Section, a new feature for 2018.
The 4,000sqm of space provides a focal point for
gaming professionals wanting to meet and engage with
the key innovators and thought leaders in the sector.
The purpose of ICE is to showcase and reflect the
dominant trends throughout gaming, and payments is
a case in point. This new feature is a tangible example
of how we listen to and work with the industry to reflect
the dynamics of the market and to ensure that ICE is
always a contemporary and relevant shop window for
Alongside the world’s leading exhibitors, ICE London
also features a world-class learning programme of
paid-for conferences courtesy of ICE VOX, the
free-to-attend ICE Seminar Programme and the
Totally Gaming Academy, which is widely regarded as
the pre-eminent training and development resource
While ICE 2018 is nearly twice the size of the 2012
edition and is the biggest on record, we have been
very careful to grow the event at a manageable pace.
The expansion of ICE has been driven by demand and
reflects the dynamics of the international market, which
views London as the once-in-the-year opportunity to
engage with a really significant community of buyers
I would like to close by hoping all of our guests enjoy the
ICE experience and everything that it has to offer.
Gaming is a global industry and I’m delighted that ICE is
its global event.
