The remote gaming sector of London’s International Gaming Expo, ICEi is on course to break all previous records with no fewer than 44 companies from 20 jurisdictions now confirmed to make their show debut across 26/27/28 January. The newcomers, occupying over 885 square metres (9,523sq.ft) of Earls Court floor space, join an unrivalled list of blue chip e-gaming names, taking the latest ICEi roster to 101 exhibitors, past the all-time high watermark of 99 set in 2009.
Three months ahead of the doors opening on the 2010 show, organisers Clarion Gaming are predicting another history-making spectacular with IGE’s remote gaming sector growing by 13.4 per cent year on year. Sales executive, Anthony Medica commented: “Demand for space has continued unabated with momentum picking up earlier and earlier each year. More and more companies are realising the huge business potential on offer at ICEi and in confirming their stand requirements have demonstrated an awareness of the unmissable opportunities. An example of this surge in interest came out during our recent, highly successful EiG Congress & Expo in Copenhagen, where 14 of our newest names completed their contracts for the ICEi show.”

The full list of ICEi debutants – consisting of 13 UK-based companies, eight from Malta, three from Cyprus, two from each of Canada, Denmark, Switzerland and the USA and the remainder drawn from Belgium, Costa Rica, Croatia, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands Antilles, Panama, Singapore and Sweden – comprises: Apex Asia, Auctionbringer, Betgenius, Betradar.com, Bettracker, Big Bang, Blue Ash Holdings, Certus, Contact Advisory Services, DOW Networks, Ecapay, e-Management, eToro, Euro Engineering, Everymatrix, Fair Champions, Fenlex Corporate Services, Gaming Solutions, Glue Finance, Iforium, Income Access, inpay, JBC, Kahnawake Gaming Commission, Laverock Von Schoultz, Living It Loving It, Mamo TCV Advocates, Numbers Play Hungary, Otto Malta, Pan-Index, Press Association Sport, Random Consulting, RSM Malta, RunningBall, Safenames, SecureBet, SGS Universal, Sherriffgaming, Star Partners, Studio 7 Productions, Tote Direct, UGSPay.com, Vasco Data Security and Vuetec.

Anthony Media concluded: “The first-timers bring a wealth of new concepts, products and services to ICEi, covering every conceivable facet of remote gaming and betting. Combine this with the stunning array already on offer from existing e-gaming suppliers, together with the portfolios on display from suppliers to closely associated land-based casinos, street gaming, bingo and lottery sectors, as well as the newly incorporated Betting Show – it all adds up a mouth-watering prospect for any serious gaming professional.”
