European Casino Association (ECA) Chairman, Per Jaldung says ICE London 2022 (February 1-3, ExCeL Exhibition Centre, London) will be a pivotal event for the land-based casino sector. It is because it addresses the challenges of operating in a post-pandemic environment.
Per Jaldung said, “There’s no doubt that Covid-19 has had a devastating effect on ECA members. Looking ahead, February will mark the 15th year of collaboration between ICE and the ECA. Revenues for European land-based operators have dropped by more than half in the last year. We are, however, extremely resilient and are preparing to welcome guests and return to business safely.
“ICE London 2022 will be the first big opportunity for ECA members to meet as a group, share their perspectives, and discuss recovery strategies in depth. The recovery will depend heavily on innovation, both in terms of goods and services. ICE is the best showcase for innovation anywhere on the globe.”
“The ECA completely supports Clarion’s decision to hold the next edition of ICE in February. We are assured that the industry and our members will meet in London once again,” he said.
“In partnership with ICE, Managing Director, Stuart Hunter, I look forward to announcing future collaborative plans in the lead-up to and at ICE London as the industry recovers.
