GamCrowd and Clarion Events sign two-year content and event partnership

27 March 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- GamCrowd and Clarion Events have agreed a content and event partnership that covers the international event organiser’s three core gaming exhibitions: ICE Totally Gaming, GiGse and EiG.

The long-term commitment, which has a renewal option at the end of the initial contract, will see the gambling-specialist crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform reprise Pitch ICE at ICE 2016.

Building on the success of the inaugural competition, where a public vote saw online games developer Gamevy crowned winner from a field of 20 entrants, the start-up judged to have the most potential will again be admitted to the GamCrowd Incubator program.

GiGse 2015, which takes place at Hyatt Regency, San Francisco, from April 20-22, will be the first event covered by the new arrangement.

For the next two editions of the event GamCrowd is supporting the Start-Up LaunchPad competition, where companies will pitch their business propositions in front of investors and a room full of top-level executives. Chairman Ian Hogg will lead the judging panel and GamCrowd will create unique content in the build-up to, as well as at, the event.

The entry process for GiGse 2015 saw a total of 16 applications received, which are now being reviewed by GamCrowd and Clarion. The shortlisted five finalists will be announced March 31 2015.Chris

The companies will also host Start-Up LaunchPad at EiG 2015 and 2016 and each individual winner at GiGse and EiG will gain access to the GamCrowd Incubator programme.

Across the exhibitions, GamCrowd will run a series of workshops and seminars designed to appeal to investors and start-ups. It will also produce a series of white papers and thought leadership materials during the partnership.

“Since first working together at EiG 2014, GamCrowd and Clarion have enjoyed a successful partnership. Signing this deal cements that relationship and puts start-ups and innovation at the top of the agenda at the betting and gaming industry’s biggest events,” said GamCrowd CEO Chris North.
