ICE Esports Betting Conference provides the keys to unlocking huge sector potential
Will Harding, Head of Esports at Clarion Gaming

The Esports team at Clarion Gaming has announced the make-up of its Esports Betting Conference (EBC) which is being held on 8 February at the ICC Capital Suite, part of ExCeL London. 

The Conference comprises a blend of issues and topics including insights on the status of Esports in the Americas, practical strategies to engage with Gen Z, data integrity and how to maximise its value as well as an exclusive session delivered by Better Collective which will unpack the brand’s game-changing esports strategy.

Will Harding, Head of Esports at Clarion Gaming believes the Conference provides the industry with a perfect complement to the activities taking place at the Esports Arena, which is the most visited feature on the ICE show floor. He explained: “This is the first year that we have curated the Esports Betting Conference in-house: the topics reflect the key issues of the moment and provide a parallel narrative to the F1-themed adrenaline rich experience available in the Esports Arena.”

“The Conference unlocks the immense potential which exists at the crossroads of esports and betting. It will put industry professionals wishing to understand the dynamics driving this phenomenon in pole position by drawing on the expert insights of pioneer brands including Rivalry, and Better Collective.”
