Clarion Gaming’s Managing Director, Kate Chambers, has confirmed that ICE Asia, which was due to take place on June 8 and 9 in Manila, will be postponed to next year, taking place on May 27 and 28, 2021.
Kate Chambers said: “My team and I continue to empathise with our Global Gaming community, as well as industries and supply chains around the world, that are being affected by COVID-19. We understand the deep impact the virus continues to have with our friends and colleagues across the Asia region and Globally and our best wishes go out to them.
“These are unprecedented times and we would like to keep our communication channels open and understand the challenges unfolding across the Asian Gaming community. Clarion Gaming and SiGMA continue to work together to carefully track the impact COVID-19 is having across the region and support the efforts of event partners during this really difficult time. In response to ongoing demand for industry updates and knowledge sharing, particularly in the current situation worldwide which makes face-to-face meetings impossible, Clarion Gaming and SiGMA have now launched ICE-SiGMA Asia DIGITAL, an online event to take place over the same period as the postponed event, from Monday, 8 to Wednesday, June 10.
This digital event is free for participants and will provide three days of compelling content around Gaming in Asia, with local operators, thought leaders and Gaming experts focusing on tech innovation, the future of gaming and market recovery post-COVID-19.
Founder and CEO of SiGMA Group, Eman Pulis said: “In line with SiGMA Group’s commitment to facilitating new business opportunities for key players in the global iGaming and emerging tech sectors, the digital conference will embrace the difficulties we are facing at a time when working together has never been more important. COVID-19 has provided a unique opportunity to rethink how we live and work.”
The interactive experience will feature a series of panel discussions and keynotes from leading industry contributors, bringing top speakers together for discussions that will engage the community and shape the future as we adapt to a fast-changing global environment. It is also set to utilise an online networking platform so that participants can still benefit from connection sharing and arranging meetings, via video, that may otherwise have been restricted to a face-to-face setting.
