ICE London postponed until 2022
Clarion Gaming has decided that ICE London will not take place in 2021 because of the concerns over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“As a consequence of the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and the continuing uncertainty in our markets, the decision to move the world’s leading gaming industry and affiliate events into the summer of 2021 has been necessary and follows close consultation with the international community of stakeholders, many of whom requested more time for both the industry and the world economy to stabilize including an easing of regulations covering international business travel,” said Clarion Gaming Managing Director, Kate Chambers.
The next edition of the event will take place at ExCeL London (1-3 February 2022) alongside iGB Affiliate London (3-5 February). Read more
