US – ICE North America Digital attracts significant interestBy Phil - 24 April 2020
Clarion Gaming’s ICE North America Digital is shaping up to be the must-attend online event of the spring after attracting over a thousand sign-ups since its launch just under a month ago.
The week-long, free-to-attend gathering of operators, suppliers and regulators will feature over 40 speakers during five days of high-quality content focused on the land-based, online and tribal betting and gaming markets in the US, as well as the growing hospitality tech sector.
With just over two weeks until it begins on Monday May 11th, it has already welcomed 1100 registrations from 558 companies based in 85 countries around the world.
The opening day will concentrate on iGaming and iLottery, touching on subjects as diverse as blockchain and social gaming, with Tuesday’s sessions moving on to sports betting and performance marketing.
Wednesday’s focus will be bricks and mortar and hospitality, whilst Thursday’s will be delivered by Clarion Gaming’s Training specialists, offering short, sharp practical takeaways covering Responsible Gaming, Sportsbook and Casino Property Management.
With the final day set to feature a virtual get together recreating the great networking events Clarion is famous for throughout the industry, ICE North America Digital Event Director Rory Credland is confident there will be something for everyone.
He said: “We wanted to reach out to our partners and show attendees and assure them that it was business as usual, and I’m pleased to say that people have responded in large numbers. The North American market is so fast-moving that regulations and solutions are changing all the time. Now more than ever there is a need for a collective approach where we can all share our experience and know-how on how we move forward and we’re delighted to be able to facilitate this for free.”
With others being added to the roster every day, speakers currently include operators like Bobby Soper, President and CEO of Sun Gaming & Hospitality, Daniel Kustelski, Co-Founder and CEO of Chalkline Sports, and Colleen Birch, SVP of Revenue Optimization at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
It will also host luminaries from Maryland Lottery and Gaming, Kentucky Lottery, PointsBet and Edwards Technologies, among others.
