Clarion joins forces with SiGMA to bring ICE to Asia

SiGMA Group and Clarion Gaming will join forces for a new trade show in 2020. Taking place in Manila, Philippines, on 8-9 June next year, ICE Asia and SiGMA Manila become a new hub of discovery and business-making for global landbased and online gaming communities. The co-located events will welcome operators, suppliers and gaming professionals from around the world to discuss and display the very best solutions and ideas across every gaming vertical.

The b2b event will cater for both the land-based gambling sector as well as the igaming sector, with online suppliers, operators, affiliates, regulators and blockchain businesses all being housed under one roof at the SMX Convention Centre situated in the heart of Manila.

As Asia tempts leading brands from the global gambling sector to expand business opportunities in the region, it’s fast becoming clear that Asia is the new frontier for both land-based and igaming industries. Recent figures from Global Gambling Statistics 2019 reveal that seven of the top ten locations for gambling revenue based on visitors are in Asia (including Australia). In Macau alone, revenue could reach as high as US$53 billion by 2022.

As these jurisdictions look to capitalise on the global opportunities flourishing in the gambling sector, it’s crucial to bridge the business divide between East and West, addressing considerations such as regulatory environments in different territories, payments processing methods, the integration of blockchain emerging technologies, and even bandwidth problems for mobile gaming. It’s precisely these issues that next year’s show in Manila will address by bringing the biggest brands and jurisdictions in the sector together in one venue.

Kate Chambers, MD Clarion Gaming commented: “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.”

“To combine the expertise of Clarion courtesy of the world famous ICE brand and SiGMA ensures both the land-based and iGaming sectors will find synergy in Manila in 2020. This is an exciting time as we extend the reach of the ICE brand following the launch of ICE Africa in 2018 and ICE North America in May 2019,” Chambers added.

Eman Pulis, founder and CEO of SiGMA Group, also said: “As we take the SiGMA brand to global markets, we’re proud to facilitate the biggest gaming expo to bring East and West together. It is unprecedented for two such established events to join forces in Asia this way, so this will be an unmissable calendar event amongst C-level gaming executives, whether they have existing business activity in Asia or are looking to expand their operations in the Far East.”
