Kicking off in just two weeks time, London’s ICE Expo is set to be the leading gaming industry event in 2014 with close to 500 of the biggest names in the business exhibiting.
This year's event will include a number of free-to-attend seminars addressing the Bitcoin phenomenon, the state of play in India, the first Tribal Gaming Seminar, as well as a masterclass on the issues surrounding match-fixing.
Last year, 22,247 attendees came through the doors during the three-day event, a 4.3 per cent rise compared to the previous year. This year promises to be even bigger with the event taking over both the North and South halls of London's ExCeL centre with a 12 per cent larger floor area than in 2013.
As usual, visitors will be able to experience the entire world of gaming covering, betting, bingo, casino, lottery, mobile, online, street and social gaming across the 55,000 square meter venue.
The Gaming Intelligence team will be exhibiting at ICE for the fifth consecutive year (stands ND4-C & ND4-D), where we will be unveiling the Gaming Intelligence Hot 50 of 2014 on the first day of the show, as well providing coverage of all of the major deals and product releases throughout the event.
