Are you leading a research project that will have business implications for the gambling sector?

Submit your research proposal for a chance to present it in front of industry’s top executives, gathering in London from February 6-8, 2018 for ICE Totally Gaming.

ICE Totally Gaming gathers more than 30k visitors from across the gambling sector and is an annual celebration of gambling technology and innovation.

For its 2018 show, ICE is collaborating with the UNLV International Gaming Institute and Director of Research, Dr. Brett Abarbanel, to create the Research Exchange, a unique opportunity for academic researchers from around the world to submit their research proposals for a chance to have them presented to ICE’s global industry audience:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to get their ideas and projects in front of industry eyes, helping bridge the gap between the academic world and the sector we study,” says Dr. Abarbanel.

Can’t make it to London? Not a problem! In-person and virtual presentations can be accommodated.

The winner will also receive a pass for all events organized by Clarion Gaming in 2018 and an opportunity to present at one of them (pending further discussions with the production team to assess the applicability).
