Gambling Business Group praises ICE Consumer Protection Zone

13 February 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Peter Hannibal, CEO of the influential cross-sector Gambling Business Group (GBG), has described the introduction of the Consumer Protection Zone at ICE London as a much-needed and powerful initiative.

Speaking in the week following ICE London, he said, "I would like to congratulate Clarion Gaming's Managing Director Kate Chambers and her team for putting on yet another fantastic edition of ICE London. The introduction of the Consumer Protection Zone was not only the right thing for Clarion to do on behalf of the industry, it was also one of the most popular areas at ExCeL. I think it was a hugely successful start, and I look forward to its development and growth in ensuing years."

The GBG was once again delighted to use ICE London to host the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as Peter Hannibal explained, "It (ICE) was a great opportunity for GBG members, all of whom attended ICE as either exhibitors or visitors, to get to meet the people from the government department that presides over gambling in the U.K. and at such a critical and pivotal time for the Industry. The DCMS Team, none of whom had previously attended ICE, were very interested in seeing the range of gaming products that are available in the U.K. and to talk with exhibitors in the Consumer Protection Zone."

He continued, "I think it's essential for the industry to work with the DCMS in order to help explain the challenges facing the industry and to demonstrate the advances that are being made in terms of social responsibility initiatives. There is no better place to achieve these objectives than at ICE London."

Members of the Gambling Business Group (GBG) are drawn from all sectors of the offline/online gaming landscape and account for the majority of U.K. Gross Gaming Yield. Recent initiatives have seen the GBG pioneer a cashless payment system for the U.K. adult gaming, pub and bingo sectors, lobby for the exclusion of low stake gaming from the Anti Money Laundering Directive and lead the formation of The Gambling Expert Group, an affiliation of trade and regulatory bodies.
