Sibella to Keynote at ICE VOX

Clarion Gaming announced that Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas, will open its ICE VOX International Casino Conference in London with a keynote address January 31, 2022, the day before the opening of the ICE London trade show and conference.

The first property to open on the Las Vegas Strip in 11 years, Resorts World Las Vegas launched on a platform of industry-leading technology that connects gaming, entertainment, leisure and dining options. Sibella, a casino veteran who has managed properties such as The Mirage and MGM Grand, will discuss the work undertaken to bring the highly anticipated project to fruition in a keynote address to VOX attendees.

“ICE VOX is an integral part of the ICE London experience and delivers a unique opportunity to listen to the industry’s pre-eminent thought leaders,” said Stuart Hunter, managing director of Clarion Gaming, “as well as meeting with the people responsible for the game-changing iconic products and innovations found on the ICE show floor.

“Visitors are traveling to ICE London to see the very best that the international industry can offer, and I am delighted that a figure of Scott Sibella’s caliber has agreed to join us and contribute to what it is that makes ICE London so special. The 2022 edition of ICE London/ICE VOX will be the first for two years, and I can assure attendees that it will be a celebration of everything that makes the industry so vibrant and so exciting.”

In related news, esports will have a high profile at the trade show. The iconic Hyper X Esports Truck—aka “Big Betty”—will form the main stage for the professional players and keynote speakers who will be appearing at the gaming expo.

The customized, 21-meter-long (69 feet) classic American-style truck which when unfolded is close to 12 meters (39 feet) deep, boasts a rooftop VIP area and players’ lounge with 20 gaming stations.

“Our job as event organizers is to explain and de-mystify esports, in the process helping to inform the gaming and betting market about the scale of the esports betting and wagering opportunity and how it can be harnessed by the industry,” said Will Harding, head of esports at Clarion Gaming.

“Essentially, Big Betty is an arena on wheels. It unfolds into a fully equipped esports studio and main stage, enabling us to reflect the culture, theater and appeal of the esports phenomenon, which will be explained courtesy of the keynote speakers who will be sharing their insight with our B2B audience. I believe Clarion was way ahead of the game when we launched the esports feature at ICE London 2020, and we continue to make important progress helping operators deepen their knowledge of esports betting.

“Big Betty is a high-profile centerpiece attraction, and will be a major talking point at the show. We have already secured sponsorship support from key brands including UltraPlay (headline sponsor), the multi-awarded turnkey betting provider which was assembled by a team of experienced iGaming professionals; and CoinsPaid, the leader in crypto payment services for the iGaming industry.”
