Innovative sportsbook solutions provider Champion Sports has been named as the sponsor of the official networking event at ICE North America.
The free to attend conference takes place between May 13th and 14th at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
And following an agreement at ICE London, Champion Sports has agreed to partner with Clarion Gaming to put on the show’s main drinks reception on the opening night at the iconic Mardi Gras World.
Taking place at the venue’s Grand Oaks Mansion, the event will feature local music and cuisine alongside the famous southern hospitality as delegates look to unwind among their industry peers.
Mark Robson, Co-founder of Champion Sports, said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Clarion and are very much looking forward to partnering with them for the official networking event at the most multi-faceted gaming and hospitality conference in North America. “We are new to the market but are already attracting a lot of interest from operators looking for an alternative solution that is tested to tier one standards, so the combination of location and audience is perfect for us as we look to raise our profile.”
Rory Credland, Event Director for ICE North America, added: “We are very excited to have partnered with Champion Sports and grateful for their support on what promises to be a great night at Mardi Gras World. “We have been very mindful of putting on great content for delegates at the show during the day but we are also acutely aware of how important networking events are for them, and we couldn’t do it without the support of forward-thinking companies like Champion Sports.”
The new partnership follows the news Clarion has joined forces with the Mississippi Gaming and Hospitality Association to merge the Southern Gaming Summit (SGS) with ICE NA, marrying the best of land-based and online gaming.
The American Gambling Awards will also take place on the final afternoon of the show, with nominations open February 18th and finalists announced on March 30th ahead of the event.
ICE North America’s conference programme of over 150 plus speakers is available for free, covering a diverse range of topics including casino, sports betting, affiliate marketing, lottery, eSports, payments and hospitality technology.
