Managing Director of Clarion Gaming Kate Chambers confirmed that ICE North America has been postponed due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The said event was originally scheduled to take place in May this year.
The event will now be moved to Spring 2021, with exact dates to be announced soon.
“Gaming, in common with all sectors of the global economy, has been severely damaged by the horrendous impact caused by Covid-19,” Chambers said. “As event organizers immersed in the industry that we serve, we are fully aware of the economic turbulence being experienced by our friends and colleagues throughout the international supply chain and our thoughts are with them,” she added.
Chambers also explained, “Having consulted with the industry, my team and I will be paying close attention to the speed with which the virus is contained. Clearly this is an extremely dynamic situation and I will be personally keeping our stakeholders fully updated on how we promise to respond. These are unprecedented times and our sincere best wishes go to all of our stakeholders both in the United States and throughout wold gaming. If we can help in any way I would be delighted to hear from the industry on my personal e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
