An accolade echoed by the many exhibitors and visitors that attend each year

Clarion Gaming’s ICE Totally Gaming 2017 exhibition has been shortlisted in the Best U.K. Trade Show category of the Association of Exhibition Organizers’ Excellence Awards.

ICE 2017 featured over 500 exhibitors and attracted a record attendance of 30,213 visitors from 151 countries, in London earlier this year.

The exhibition will be judged alongside other major B2B events at an awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane.

“Whilst gaming is not on everybody’s radar as an industry, ICE is one of the best known B2B exhibitions within the U.K. events business,” Kate Chambers, managing director of Clarion Gaming, said.

“I believe this to be a result not just of the numbers attending ICE, but also the imagination, energy and creativity which gaming organizations bring to their presence. I am delighted that ICE has been selected as a finalist in what is widely regarded as being the Oscars for the events industry.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
