Clarion Gaming recently announced ICE London and iGB Affiliate London will be held at ExCeL London. ICE London will occur June 29-30 and July 1, and iGB Affiliate London will take place July 1-2. In addition, iGB Live 2021 will occur September 28 to October 1 in Amsterdam.
Due to the impacts of Covid-19, the decision was made to move the two gaming industry and affiliate events from their traditional February dates to next summer. Stakeholders and attendees asked for additional time to make sure the industry and the world economy would stabilize, and that regulations limiting international travel would ease.
Clarion Gaming Managing Director Kate Chambers said, “This extension provides a number of important advantages, such as enabling the very best possible space configurations and accessibility at ExCeL London. As well as the significant logistical benefits, we are also very much aware that it provides additional market recovery time, which we believe will further enhance and support the delivery, outcomes and experiences for all participants.”
Clarion Gaming Managing Director of Events Stuart Hunger noted the company currently is preparing the Road to ICE and iGB 2021 virtual events, starting in February. “Our plan is for ICE and IGB to be broadcast live globally for the first time. New platforms for networking, learning, entertainment and business development are in planning to ensure that ICE London and iGB Affiliate London continue to support the industry, raise morale and kickstart a global celebration of gaming.”
