ICEi boasts record-shattering line-up
of e-gaming exhibitors
London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre is all set to host the most
comprehensive display of remote gaming products and services
ever seen as ICEi shapes up with what will be the biggest
collection of suppliers housed together under one roof anywhere
in the world. Show organisers, Clarion Gaming, have revealed a
record-shattering line-up of e-gaming exhibitors for the Earls
Court event, taking place across 26/27/28 January, totalling no
fewer than 124 companies drawn from 33 sovereign
jurisdictions. The 2010 showcase will have
25 per cent more exhibitors than
last year’s event occupying an
area of 3,500 square metres
(37,675sq.ft), 25 per cent
bigger year-on-year.
