Award-winning journalist Nadine Dereza

On-demand broadcast previews contributions from C-List cast of thought-leaders, policy makers and politicians

Clarion Gaming has recruited award-winning international broadcaster and former Financial Times journalist Nadine Dereza to preview the ICE VOX programme of speakers and content taking place in February. Fresh from presenting for CNBC, the world’s number one business and financial news network, Nadine joined Clarion’s global content director, Robin Harrison to discuss the world’s number 1 gaming conference in a special half-hour broadcast that’s available on-demand at ICE London.

In a career that’s seen her interview global politicians including the late Kofi Annan, Condoleezza Rice, Ban Ki-moon, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Gerhard Schröder, Nadine Dereza will also be chairing the World Regulatory Briefing which comprises two days of informed debate among international policy makers, regulators and industry leaders.

Looking ahead to February’s event she said: “The theme for ICE 2024 is all about MORE: MORE connections, MORE inspiration and MORE learning, and that theme is reflected in the content, and calibre of speakers across ICE.

“Whether that’s the World Regulatory Briefing, International Casino Conference, Esports Betting Conference, or the practical workshops that delegates can register for, ICE VOX is delivering MORE content and inspiration than ever before making it one of those extremely rare events which industry leaders cannot and do not miss.

“In many ways ICE VOX is the Davos of gaming bringing global influencers, thought-leaders and policy makers together in one not to be missed annual event.”

The Preview broadcast provides a taster of February’s content-rich main course introducing a list of contributors which reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of international gaming and policy making.

The cast of talents includes MGM Resorts CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle,  Simon Thomas, Executive Chair of London’s Hippodrome Casino, Isabelle Falque Pierrotin, Chair of both the French Gambling Authority and GREF, South Africa’s Caroline Kongwa, the Vice President of IAGR, the UK Gambling Commission's Tim Miller, the UK’s former Attorney General and Culture Secretary, Sir Jeremy Wright, Stéphan Vojetta, a Member of France’s National Assembly,  Rachel Gundy, Head of Product at Betr, Ivan Rudyi, Head of the Ukrainian Commission for Regulation on Gambling and Lotteries, Viktoriya Zakrevskaya, Deputy Chairman of the Ukrainian Gambling Council, Carolyn Harris MP, former Private Secretary to the leader of the Labour Party Sir Keir Starmer, Corey Plummer, CEO of Olympic Entertainment and Olybet, René Jansen, the Chairman of the Dutch regulator, David Leslie, Director of Ethics and Responsible Innovation Research at The Alan Turing Institute, Alec Esteban Thomson, Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery and Olabimpe Akingba, Executive Secretary Association of the Nigerian Bookmakers.
