ICE 2018 will start with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring dignitaries from a cross section of gaming trade associations and regulatory bodies drawn from Europe, Asia, the Americas, Africa and Oceania.

“Gaming is a truly global industry and I am delighted that we are able to reflect those stand-out features on the ICE show floor,” said Clarion Gaming Managing Director, Kate Chambers.

“All great business events have a great chemistry and I am very conscious of the huge contribution made by our international guests in helping to create the tremendous energy and vitality of ICE London which has grown to become the meeting place for the global industry.”
