ICE Totally Gaming 2013 is set to be one of the largest conference the gambling industry has ever seen and those that attended last year will have noticed it being a little bit tricky to work your way the sports betting firms in attendance. This year that won’t be a problem. Sports betting companies are set to be wowed at this year’s exhibition, as they are subject of the firm’s newest feature – the Sports Betting Village.
For sports betting companies, and those looking to enter the market, this will be an extremely helpful new area. The village is being dubbed a “one-stop shop” for everything sports betting. It comes from the fact that both land-based and online sportsbooks will be represented as well as many stakeholders closely linked to this corner of the industry.
In all there are expected to be over 30 companies taking up positions in the 1,610 square metre sports betting village. Some of those already confirmed include BetVictor, Offside Gaming, Perform, Samvo and SBTech and it means anyone attending will be networking with only the best in sports betting.
ICE Totally Gaming sales manager Jason Miller explained in October, when the village was announced, that it simply wasn’t possible to accommodate a feature at Earls Court and it’s another reason the move to ExCeL has been a beneficial one for all. Having a village devoted to sports betting also lives up to the conference’s “Think Big” slogan and allows even the smaller segments to make sure they can make deals with as many other firms as possible.
The show truly can describe itself as a “show within a show” with this feature and it goes to show that no stone remains unturned by the organizers when it comes to the gambling industry at this year’s conference. Registration for the conference is completely free and if you haven’t already signed up then we recommend you shimmy over to the site now.
