Clarion and SiGMA Will Shower Asia with ICE in 2020Published August 14, 2019 by Lee R
A new thrill in Manila is coming in 2020 to put Philippines in the global iGaming spotlight.
Event superpromoter Clarion is joining forces with SiGMA to bring ICE to Asia.
The parent company of iGaming Business Clarion Gaming is expanding into another continent next year under the wildly popular ICE banner—this time in Asia.
The B2B event set for SMX Manila in the emerging Philippines from 8 to 9 June, 2020 caters to both the land-based and online gaming sectors, bringing together suppliers, operators, affiliates, regulators and blockchain business from as wide a global range as possible.
The New Region
With 7 of the Top 10 gambling markets in the country within its continental borders, the Asian gaming market represents a huge opportunity--with Macau revenue alone is expected to reach $53bn by 2022.
The event will offer new insights into regulatory conditions in Asian markets via such channels as payment processing and integration of emerging technologies including blockchain.
Clarion MD Speaks
Clarion Managing Director Kate Chambers explained the Clarion strategy:
“The opportunities for growth in Asia are increasing exponentially year on year, and the time is right to cement new and existing relationships between the gambling industries in both East and West.”
Chambers called the combination of Clarion's expertise with SiGMA under the legendary ICE branding the means to “find synergy in Manila in 2020” on the heels of Clarion's expansion of the ICE brand into Africa in 2018 and North America in 2019.
SiGMA Founder Speaks
SiGMA Group founder and chief executive Eman Pulis called the event "the biggest gaming expo bringing East and West together.”
Pulis called the C-level gaming executive segment the key conference stakeholders most in position to benefit from the conference, “whether they have existing business activity in Asia or are looking to expand their operations in the Far East.”
The expansion of ICE into other continents is a great sign of unity and uniformity across the entire gaming industry, and the inaugural ICE Asia launch in Asia's powerful economy next year should not be missed.
