There are a whopping sixty seven companies that will be exhibiting for the very first time at ICE Totally Gaming 2014. These new companies represent thirty different countries, a testament not only to the continued growth of ICE, but also to the true international reach of the show.
When walking through the ICE expo floor, resist the temptation to visit only the largest exhibitors- its also worth stopping by some of the smaller booths along the periphery because, well, you know how the saying goes…good things come in small packages.
Listed below are five of the sixty seven companies that are new exhibitors this year at ICE, what you will find at their booth and where you can find them.
IB Russland, Stand No: N14-340
Here’s your chance to come face to face with the Metropolitan Police Force on your own terms, not theirs. Detective Constable Mat Wake of the Met’s Gaming Unit will be manning the IB Russland stand to discuss cyber crime prevention in the land based and online gambling industry globally. Officers from the Fraud Squad’s Operation Stirling will also be in attendance and available to answer any questions and address concerns for ICE delegates.
Secure Trading, Stand No: N14-212
What’s exciting about the UK online payment processor Secure Trading is that their US subsidiary has been granted a license to operate in Nevada and an “ancillary license” in New Jersey, meaning they can enter into agreements with casinos licensed for online gambling offerings in the Garden State. Secure Trading is making a big push this year ICE by signing up for a booth and sponsoring Fire & Ice 2014.
Smarkets, Stand No: N1-200
Smarkets is a London based sports betting exchange that offers markets on all major sports, an “industry low” 2% commission, live odds and instant price updates.
