Online gambling conferences are coming back to the United States following a nearly decade long absence with ICE North America launching in Boston May 2019.

The first ICE North America will be held at the Boston Convention Exhibition Centre between 13 and 15 May, 2019.  It will combine with the legacy gambling conference event GiGse, which has hosted modest US engagements focusing more on the US land-based gambling sector.  The ICE North America event will be more suited for Web-based operators and their affiliate partners.

Confirming the plans and strategy, Clarion Gaming managing director Kate Chambers said: “We work extremely closely with all sections of the international gaming industry and throughout our discussions we’ve been made aware of how important it is to reduce the volume of events, conferences and exhibitions that take place during the course of a year whilst focussing on the blue chip event brands that have a track record for helping business meet its strategic objectives”.

“The ICE brand is synonymous with quality and we will be bringing the same levels of professionalism, organisation, commitment and insight experienced by our stakeholders at ICE London to the North American facing interactive gaming community,” she added.

Chambers publicly unveiled the new North America-facing show Wednesday morning at iGB Live!, Clarion’s new event combining The iGaming Super Show, EiG and Amsterdam Affiliate Conference.

Keith O’Loughlin, senior vice president of Sportsbook for SG Digital, a division of Scientific Games said: “Combining GiGse and ICE Sports Betting USA marks a new era for gaming, sports, and lottery providers.”

Reflecting on the potential of the US sports betting market, he added: “ICE North America will be a massively impactful event. We’re thrilled to support Clarion in their vision of creating a space for thought leaders, manufacturers, and operators to showcase the latest in gaming technology. We’re at a cornerstone in the history of betting in the States, and it’s great to see Clarion at the heart of the change, giving providers a platform to showcase the latest and greatest technology.”

Meanwhile, Benjie Cherniak, managing director at Don Best Sports, said: “This is terrific news for the North American sports betting market, particularly in light of the recent PASPA repeal. We at Don Best have been enthusiastic supporters of both GiGse and Sports Betting North America, the latter having quickly established itself as the blue chip gathering for stakeholders in the sports betting space. Combining the two into one event under the world renowned ICE umbrella makes this a must attend event for all industry stakeholders. We look forward to our continuing involvement in 2019 and beyond."
