What is ICE Africa?

A new home for African gaming. A new opportunity for operators, regulators and suppliers.

Following the hugely positive coming together of all sectors of the industry at the inaugural Gaming Africa in 2017, ICE Africa has launched – the first occasion the ICE brand has been extended beyond its London, UK, home.

ICE Africa will be an event where the industry can meet, network, see the very latest gaming innovations, share best practice and progress in a strategic and sustainable manner.  


Who is ICE Africa for and are there restrictions on attendance?
