Clarion Gaming, organisers of ICE VOX, the only industry conference to address the strategic issues facing all of gaming’s vertical markets, has confirmed an amended format for the 2020 edition (3-4th February, ExCeL London, UK) which invites delegates to ’Step Into The Future’. With an agenda setting reputation, the changes to ICE VOX 2020, which have been undertaken in consultation with delegates and members of Clarion Gaming’s Ampersand community, will see a second day added to the International Casino Conference focussing on hospitality, tech and innovation. Also new for 2020 is an ICE VOX track dedicated to Advertising, Marketing and Data Science as well as the inclusion of an ICE VOX Keynote which will take place at the beginning of both conference days.
Sadie Walters, Clarion Gaming’s Head of Production responsible for ICE VOX, believes the 2020 format will help to consolidate the brand’s reputation for meeting the 360º strategic needs of the industry. She explained: “Gaming is a moving feast powered by technology, nuanced by an evolving consumer market and operating within a regulated environment. As such leading conferences such as ICE VOX have to maintain a dialogue with their stakeholders and adapt both content and format to meet the strategic needs of businesses both land based and digital.
“On a practical note we have acted on the market feedback to use single space areas to improve sound with all tracks taking place in the same location. In addition the first floor of the Platinum Suite at ExCeL London will be set aside as a dedicated space where delegates can have client meetings away from the bustle of the show floor and to network with other senior members of the international gaming industry including legislators and regulators. Attracting delegates from over 80 countries ICE VOX remains the most international conference in the world enabling it to set the future agenda for the entire global industry.”
