Clarion Gaming has announced that its iGB Affiliate London 2022 event will reflect the importance and the profile of the US market.
The event organizers have revealed that for its upcoming event, taking place on April 13-14 at ExCeL London, UK, 42% of industry professionals who have registered are operating in the US. Close to eight in ten (78.9%) of the event’s delegates are categorized as final decision-makers.
Back in January, Clarion confirmed the new dates for its ICE London, ICE VOX, and iGB Affiliate London events as they will now take place in April 2022. Its ICE London and iGB Affiliate conferences were postponed last year following concerns from industry stakeholders.
Naomi Barton, Portfolio Director responsible for iGB Affiliate, commented: “We are still 10 weeks from going live and I’m delighted that the figures are looking strong, and positive for both our exhibitor and visitor communities.
“Lead events such as iGB Affiliate London serve to reflect the dynamics of the industry sectors that they serve and the uptick in US pre-reg figures is a manifestation of the market dynamics impacting the affiliate sector in North America.
“Figures from iGB’s principal data partner H2 Gambling Capital forecast 200% growth in the total addressable revenues for affiliates in North America over the next five years, compared to the global figure of 68%. Add the new states either launched or launching such as NY which had $1bn staked in 16 days and you get the picture of an extremely buoyant market.”
Barton noted that the event is “comfortably ahead of the pre-reg figures for 2020,” adding: “The Affiliate market is upbeat about the year ahead and I’m looking forward to a repeat of the positivity that we all experienced at iGB Affiliate Amsterdam and iGB Live! staged five months ago.”
