London – The Arizona Indian Gaming Association (AIGA) has become the latest high profile non-profit organisation in the gaming space to give its support to ICE Totally Gaming 2016 (2nd, 3rd & 4th February, ExCeL Centre, London). The AIGA is launching its support by promoting a free trip to the London show, the winner of which will be announced at the forthcoming AIGA EXPO, 28th – 30th October, Talking Stick Resort, Scottsdale, Arizona, US.
Heralding the support, AIGA Executive Director, Valerie Spicer said: „We are very excited to be able to officially announce our relationship with ICE in the lead-up to our own EXPO at the end of October. ICE is widely respected throughout world gaming and it is the most appropriate event for us to expand the reach of Tribal Gaming into the international space.“
Marketing Director, Jo Mayer, believes that the link-up with the Arizona Indian Gaming Association, sits perfectly with the ICE mandate and vision. She explained: „First of all, I would like to place on record how delighted we all are at ICE to be working with the AIGA, a highly respected organisation which is committed to advancing the lives of American Indian people, economically, socially and politically in pursuit of the ultimate goal of self-reliance.“
„The AIGA speaks on behalf of its member Tribes with a unified voice and I believe that in a similar way, ICE represents the entirety of the gaming experience. Our mission statement is to represent the ‚totality of gaming‘ which we achieve by working with a wide range of international representative bodies and organisations. At ICE 2015 the number of supporting associations totalled 26 and I am delighted to be able to add to this the influence of the AIGA.„
