ICE London (6th – 8th February, ExCeL London, UK) has underlined its credentials as a centre of learning for the international gaming community with confirmation of the free entry Seminar Programme that will take place both close to the show floor in the South Gallery of the ExCeL Centre, and on the show floor itself. The eight strong seminar programme, which has been curated to complement the pay-to-attend ICE VOX conference stream, covers contemporary issues including Affiliate Marketing, Casino Trends, Diversity in Gaming, Research in Gaming, Gaming Start-Ups, Training, Opportunities in Italy and Conducting Business in Indian Country.
 
Dan Stone, Senior Marketing Manager, responsible for ICE London, said: “Our aim is to deliver a 360 degree perspective on the industry in order to complement the full range of equipment on the show floor at ICE London, which covers every gaming vertical. As well as providing the ICE VOX stream of paid content, we recognise that some ICE delegates will want a less intense learning experience, and may wish just to select one or two topics of interest as part of their ICE London experience.  The seminar programme is current and informative, delivered by experts in their chosen field.”
 
The ICE Seminar programme comprises:
 
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2018

Affiliate Marketing
South Gallery Room
Following major developments in the UK iGaming affiliate landscape under the auspices of increasing macro-environment pressure, the affiliate space was hit hard by the closure of the Sky Betting & Gaming affiliate programme.
This seminar seeks to further assess ways in which operators, affiliates, suppliers, regulators and the media can progress their work together to ensure that affiliate marketing - the bastion of both user acquisition and player advocacy in the iGaming space for a generation - continues to serve the industry in a progressively responsible manner to protect customers.
 
Diversity & Inclusion in Gaming
South Gallery Room
Following the first seminar on this topic held at ICE 2017, this year’s seminar will continue the discussion on how the gambling sector can become a more inclusive industry, allowing for more innovation through diversity, and thus achieving better financial results.  This seminar will once again focus on the specific strategies that organisations within the sector can implement to improve their diversity, going beyond just gender.
 
Italy Briefing
