It’s that time of year again and the first week of February sees the iGaming Industry descend on London for the week, as two big annual events are held at the London Excel Center. The first event which starts tomorrow on 5th February is ICE Totally Gaming, which is the premier B2B event for iGaming world wide.
Used to be known as just the International Casino Exhibition or ICE for short, OCR has been attending this event since 2006, when it was held at Earls Court.
Initially mainly focused on the bricks and mortar aspects of gaming, iGaming’s footprint on this area has grown substantially. This is shown by the fact the largest stands are hosts to iGaming operators. With the likes of Microgaming and Playtech trying to outdo each other every year.
This year’s event running from Tuesday 5th February – Thursday 7th February is set to be the biggest event yet. Featuring a whos who of iGaming alongside the land based operators.
After ICE, the Excel turns itself over to the London Affiliate Conference, which is now also owned by Clarion Events ( The organisers and owners of ICE Totally Gaming ). LAC has been running since 2007 and is regarded as the main event for iGaming Affiliates to attend.
Then there is the small matter of the Casinomeister Annual Meet, held at Waxy O Connors in Leicester Square. OCR will be in attendance and if you haven’t subscribed as of yet to our YouTube Channel, do so. As footage of the ICE and the Meister meet will be uploaded to the channel by the end of the week.
