Delegates from the private sector and the Manx Government are to attend the ICE Totally Gaming event in London. The aim is to promote the Isle of Man as a world class location for e-gaming business.
Last year's event attracted more than 22,000 people.
Howard Quayle MHK, the political member for e-gaming at the Department of Economic Development, said: 'Our attendance at
ICE is an important part of the department's ongoing strategy to continue expansion of this fast growing sector, which now
employs around 800 people directly and represents nine per cent of our economy. It also enables us to demonstrate the high
quality of our e-gaming sector and I am delighted that the excellent relationship that the department enjoys with the local
e-gaming industry will be reinforced with so many companies from the private sector joining us on the stand.'
Representatives from 14 companies will attend with delegates from the DED and the Gambling Supervision Commission.
The event takes place from February 4 to 6 and is described as globally the largest event of its kind.
CEO of e-gaming for the DED, Peter Greenhill said: 'I’m looking forward to promoting the benefits of setting up an e-gaming
company or e-business in the Isle of Man. Last year the local delegation made a significant number of good new contacts
thanks to our status as an e-Gaming centre of excellence with an innovative and robust regulatory regime, world-class ICT
infrastructure and our pro-business approach.’
