calling the ExCeL London its home for the past dozen years
After calling the ExCeL London its home for the past dozen years, ICE will seek greener pastures when it moves to Barcelona next year. The city was chosen ahead of Madrid, Paris, and London following an intense six-month selection process; it will be held at the Fira de Barcelona for an initial five-year term. The 2024 edition kicks off on Tuesday and ends on Thursday.
A huge event
More than 45,000 people and a record 811 exhibitors are expected to attend ICE London 2024 Clarion Gaming, the organizer of the event, and its Managing Director Stuart Hunter noted that the final ICE London will use “every square millimetre of available space” in the arena.
Barcelona’s bid was preferred over the others because of its world-class facilities, great infrastructure for hospitality, ability to scale, logistics, and the potential return on investment for customers.
Some of the different areas of focus at ICE London include esports, payments, sports betting, and casino. Many of the exhibits will be manned by companies showcasing new games, betting features, and other emerging technologies.
Among the headline speakers for the conference are MGM Resorts International CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle, as well as the chair of the Gambling-Related Harm All-Party Parliamentary Group MP Carolyn Harris.
