iGaming Conferences and News – 27/01/17 VBLOG
The first Online Casino Reviewer Video Blog of 2017 covers the upcoming iGaming Conferences, in the form of the ICE Totally Gaming Conference and the London Affiliate Conference. Both of which are held in London at the Excel Centre, back to back.
I have been attending the International Casino Exhibition pretty much annually since January 2006, when the event used to be held at Earls Court. Other than a couple of years I missed, this is for me and Online Casino Reviewer, the must attend iGaming Conference of the year.
The reason being is quite simple, all the movers and shakers from operators, to games developers, licensing jurisdictions to payment processors are in attendance. When I first started attending the ICE, iGaming or online gambling had just a small corner of Earls Court to populate but nowadays the ICE concerns iGaming just as much as it does it’s Land Based cousin.
If you are a player, webmaster or work within the industry in some capacity and there is only one event that you can attend, then the ICE is the event that demands your attendance.
The reason being is that you will find out first hand what new slot games are in development as well as having the opportunity to speak to the leading online casino games developers. With the likes of Microgaming, IGT, Playtech et al all occupying stands in the Excel centre. Indeed such is the competition between the software companies, they always try to outdo each other on their stands.
The International Casino Exhibition ( ICE – Totally Gaming ) runs from February 7th – February 9th.
London Affiliate Conference
Now that iGaming Business which has been operating the London Affiliate Conference for some ten years is part of the Clarion Gaming Group, LAC as is it known for short is also held in the Excel Centre and follows straight after the ICE finishes.
The London Affiliate Conference is geared towards affiliate webmasters who focus on the casino industry, but it does now also contain stands representing the ever growing Forex market space. Unfortunately I will not be attending the LAC this year, but will be in attendance for the duration of ICE. However, that said, if you are webmaster, particularly just starting out in this space then the LAC is definitely well worth attending.
The London Affiliate Conference holds many seminars throughout the event, with the majority of them focusing on SEO ( Search Engine Optimisation ). But the floor space is populated with representatives of the casino affiliate programs. It provides webmasters the opportunity to meet face to face with their marketing partners and more importantly the ability to network with their peers.
The London Affiliate Conference is held at the Excel Center and runs from February 9th – February 12th.
In addition to these two events taking place in London at the beginning of February, there is the small matter of the IGB Affiliate Awards, which for the second year running are free for affiliates to attend. Finally there is also the Casinomeister Meet at Waxy O Conners in Leicester Square which takes place on Tuesday 7th February.
I will most definitely be there in attendance as it gives me a chance to catch up with some great friends and several players who post on the Casinomeister Forum, of which I also help moderate going by the handle Webzcas.
Lastly I announce the listing of a new US Facing Online Casino here on Online Casino Reviewer, in the form of Grande Vegas Casino. Well worth checking out our dedicated review and find out as to why this casino is a great option for our US visitors.
