Superpromoter Clarion has confirmed a new version of ICE in Africa, enhancing the evolution of the wildly popular ICE brand.
ICE Africa Champions will take place October 2-3, at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. Taking place in advance of the second edition of ICE Africa, the inaugural ICE Africa Champions is designed to champion Africa's key gaming jurisdictions.
The roster of designated ICE Africa Champions invited to endorse their respective territories and drive co-operation across Africa's regulated gaming economies includes Nigerian journalist/sports television personality Colin Udoh; BestBet CEO Dolan Beuthin; Global Gaming Africa consultancy co-founder John Kamara; GoldenKey casino Director Judy Kiragu; WYS Solicitor Senior Partner Olafadeke Akeju; and Law Alliance Partner Yahaya Maikori.
The attendee list would support the diversity of the opportunity, both for the region and for attendees. ICE Africa Champions will be featured across two streams, comprised of 60+ expert thought-leaders, regulators, investors and operators from both the pan-African and international gaming industry.
ICE Africa Brand Ambassador John Kamara praised Clarion's initiative in formulating the conference as “an important step towards securing gaming’s future throughout the continent” while calling himself humbled “to see such high profile pioneers from across the industry” on the roster.
On the Region
Kamara called Africa “an extremely dynamic sector which is shaped by a combination of advances in technology, changing demographics and, of course, regulation.”
Kamara sees ICE Africa Champions as a perfect complement to ICE Africa, calling ICE Africa Champions a way “to identify, research and advise on industry topics and data to ensure the most up-to-date information is available to all ICE Africa visitors when the industry convenes in October.”
With the strong ambition of powerful promoter Clarion, the leadership of luminaries such as Kamara, the conference goal of driving socially responsible advancement across the continent looks quite promising, and the opportunity to attend the inaugural ICE Africa would appear to prove invaluable to all those who make the trip.
