eCOGRA has once again exhibited at ICE London from 7th-9th February, taking a prominent space in the Consumer Protection Zone. The event, organised by Clarion Gaming, drew record crowds with over 35,000 attendees from 68 jurisdictions. With 51,466 square metres of exhibits spread across all 41 halls of Excel London the event was hailed as “arguably the most historic edition” to date by Stuart Hunter, managing director of Clarion Gaming.
As predicted, regulation was a key talking point among both attendees and exhibitors. eCOGRA was founded on the ideals of player protection, fair gaming and responsible conduct by operators, software providers and relevant service providers. With regulatory changes on the horizon for many jurisdictions, including the eagerly anticipated white paper from the UK government to address Britain’s Gambling Act of 2005, eCOGRA’s experienced team relished the opportunity to engage in conversations around the future of compliance within the iGaming industry.
Speaking at the event, Shaun McCallaghan, CEO said “ICE London is an excellent forum to meet in person with our clients, to gain insights from other industry leaders and it provides a vital hub for the global industry to interact and grow together.”
Another key talking point this year is eCOGRA’s recent jurisdictional approval to offer a full suite of certification services in the US States of Michigan and Pennsylvania. These latest approvals bring eCOGRA’s total number of jurisdictions to 34 across 4 continents and provide an exciting opportunity for European gaming suppliers and operators to access the growing US market. eCOGRA has never had any of it’s accreditations suspended or revoked, or any application for approval by a jurisdictional regulator rejected.
