All forms of gaming are covered at ICE, whether land-based or online. So if you are a decision maker within gaming looking for solutions, you can register your interest here.

If you are a provider of solutions for gaming decision makers, you should enquire about stand / sponsorship options.

When and where does ICE take place?

ICE 2019 runs from Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 February 2019. The show is open from 10am to 6pm on Tuesday, 10am to 6pm and Wednesday and 10am to 4pm on the final day, Thursday (all times in GMT).

The event takes place at ExCeL London, located 10 minutes from Canary Wharf, in the heart of London’s Royal Docks. Getting to ExCeL London from both local and international travel hubs is easy. Plan your journey with the ExCeL London travel guide and interactive map.

Is parking available?

If you are driving to ExCeL London, you can make use of 3,070 parking spaces at a £20 flat tariff for up to 24 hours (correct at time of writing). For more information, visit the Travel & Accommodation page.

What is the difference between the seminars and the ICE VOX conference?

ICE provides a range of free-to-attend seminars and features that take place during the show on the exhibition floor and within ExCeL London’s gallery rooms from Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 February. Seminars provide brief overviews on some of the latest topics and trends affecting various sectors. These do not require registration in advance, so we strongly advise all visitors to join seminars as soon as possible to get a seat and avoid disappointment.

ICE VOX is entirely different, providing a dedicated learning forum from Monday 4 February to Wednesday 6 February, exploring in much more depth the key issues affecting senior gaming professionals, including: eSports; casinos; cybercrime and security; data science and personalisation; game design and development; blockchain; lotteries; and world regulation.

ICE VOX is a separate, and paid-for, event to ICE Totally Gaming and requires booking in advance. Focus is very much on the quality of learning, so much effort is placed on acquisition of leading thinkers for an effective and inspiring speaker line-up.

Delegates attending ICE VOX can use their tickets to attend the ICE London exhibition.

Is ICE suitable for disabled visitors?

Absolutely. The venue ExCeL London has a range of accessibility features, including 155 disabled parking bays, 40 disabled toilets and free wheelchair hire for those in need. Mobility scooters are also available for charged hire via the venue’s partner Europcar. ICE is committed to accessibility and so all aisles within the show are set to allow for ease of travel.

Find out more about accessibility via the ExCeL London page here.

I have been contacted about accommodation for ICE, but I don’t recognise the organiser – what should I do?

Please be vigilant if approached by any company or service other than our official providers Zibrant or HotelMap that implies or claims to be an official accommodation provider of ICE.

We have been made aware of other accommodation companies, such as Global Housing Services Corporation, that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Reservations made through these ‘pirate’ agencies or companies will be at your own risk.
