ICE moves out of London and launch into African waters in 2018
Clarion Gaming will take the ICE brand to Africa for the first time this year. Kate Chambers, Clarion Gaming Managing Director made the decision to take ICE – which is world’s biggest B2B gaming technology event to the Africa continent as she feels the gaming market is ready to explode.
Emerging Gaming Market in Africa
Africa’s young and emerging market made it the top choice for an ICE event outside London. Though it could prove a challenge for the company, Kate Chambers said the time was right to embrace that challenge and share the ICE brand with other communities. Chambers said the event will help boost Africa’s gaming market by bringing stakeholders together and create new synergies that will boost gaming across all African countries.
The African gaming market exhibits significant potential for growth and development as it carves its own mark in the global gaming landscape. Clarion Gaming wants to focus their attention on this market since the company is constantly on the lookout to innovative and push its brand to the next level. ICE Africa will be treated with the same level of commitment and creativity as ICE London according to Chambers.
