ICE Conferences 2013 featured eight high-level and carefully developed one-day in-depth and targeted conferences, tailored to the needs of very specific audiences. They provided an intimate and focused environment to network with, and learn from, like-minded professionals, with interest in areas such as CRM, multi-channel integration and marketing, social gaming, lottery, cybercrime and security, mobile gaming, opening jurisdictions worldwide and the European Commission’s action plan.
As always, the programme commenced the day before the ICE exhibition opened with the International Casino Conference (ICC) which has been organised for the fifth year in partnership with the highly respected European Casino Association. I am delighted to say the ICC is now the flagship event for the European casino industry bringing together, as it does, the preeminent thought leaders in the business.
As the world of gaming explores the concept of convergence and adapts new delivery channels such as online, mobile and social, all of the ICE conference streams delivered invaluable educational content to help businesses learn the tools that are required to provide a universal, multichannel and seamless gaming experience to their customers.
Encompassing all of gaming’s vertical markets – poker, sports betting, casino, lottery, bingo and social games – and all of the channels – landbased, online, mobile, tablets and Facebook – ICE Conferences is the most complete supplement to what is now the single largest gaming exhibition in the world.
In 2013 ICE Totally Gaming took residence at its new permanent home in ExCeL London and was held across new dates in February. The relocation to ExCeL London delivered significant benefits, not least the provision of state of the art facilities which you would expect in a modern purpose-built venue, and which are fit for the staging of prestigious learning and networking events such as ICE.
