Clarion Gaming is launching its first digital conference, ICE North America Digital next week, featuring more than 40 speakers and 1700 attendees.
The digital conference comes in response to the coronavirus, which has made running their physical conference an impossibility.
The week-long gathering of operators, suppliers and regulators begin on Monday May 11th and is set to focus on the land-based, online and tribal betting and gaming markets in the U.S, as well as the growing hospitality tech sector.
Latest sponsors to endorse the digital event, which replaces the postponed show in New Orleans, include Catena Media, Champion Sports, BetB2B, NSoft, VizExplorer, and Convergence Strategy Group.
The opening day will concentrate on iGaming and iLottery, touching on subjects such as the most successful slots during Covid 19, iGaming providing a lifeline to land-based casinos, and staying competitive in iLottery.
Tuesday’s focus will Centre on sports betting and performance Marketing, and will feature Michigan State Representative Brandt Iden and Christopher Hebert, Gaming Division Director of the Louisiana Attorney General’s office, as well as speakers from Nascar, Pointsbet, Catena Media and Hard Rock International.
Wednesday’s line up takes in Bobby Soper, Colleen Birch, Brendan Bussman, and Corey Padveen among others, and will revolve around bricks and mortar and developments in hospitality technology.
In contrast, Thursday’s session will be delivered by Clarion Gaming’s Training specialists, offering short, sharp practical takeaways covering Responsible Gaming, Sportsbook, and the evolution from ‘Bricks to clicks’.
With the final day featuring a keynote presentation, summary of the week and a wrap-up get together suitable for self-quarantine, ICE North America Digital Event Director Rory Credland is confident it is now a must-attend event.
He said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the interest from the industry, not only from the companies wanting to use the event to showcase their products and services, but also the high quality of speakers we’ve been able to attract.
“A lot of the focus is going to be on how we get through these tricky few months and put in place strategies to ensure we emerge stronger, but there will also be good business development opportunities that people expect from our conferences.”
