We have officially made our way into February, and for many online casino and land based casino connoisseurs then you would know that February is a very important month indeed. In the Summer months we have the EGR Awards, and in February we have the very exciting ICE Conference! This is a place where game creators, entrepreneurs, gaming enthusiasts and even more can come together all under one roof and talk games! ICE Totally Gaming’s goal is to represent and establish the absolute entire gaming industry covering everything from land based casinos to online casinos across all sectors and countries!
Within the ICE conference there are various different sectors involved in this including Betting, Bingo, Casino, Lottery, Online, Mobile, Payments, Social, Sports Betting, and Street. Whichever genre you are interested in and whether you are a new online casino, one of the oldies, or even just thinking of starting a casino, ICE Totally Gaming has got it covered and this is precisely why it makes the perfect place to network with other casino enthusiasts, showcase your company and games, and mingle along the likes of some of the top casino people in the world.
The ICE conference will be taking place from the 5th of February 2019 until the 7th of February 2019 at the Excel in London. This is where many of our top online casinos and top online casino
providers will flock to. One of which is Microgaming who have their game plan in action and are going there with a fantastic and extremely innovative idea which has never been done before from a standpoint of the ICE conference.
This leading software supplier, Microgaming are taking to ICE to showcase their commitment to reducing the amount of waste there is. On their ICE stand they will be providing extensive recycling facilities which will minimize the amount of plastic used at its bar, and supply ways to reuse these plastics for the following shows in the future. As many of us know, thousands and thousands of people attend ICE each year, that is thousands and thousands of plastic waste and waste that could have been recycled but a lot of it gets missed in the madness of the days. In the year 2019 it should almost be an automatic regine where people constantly recycle and try to make this world a better place however we are not there just yet.
During the three day ICE event, Microgaming has made a pledge to recycle its stand graphics, along with disposing of other materials at the end of the event. At the bar there will be 100% compostable cups and mugs, along with reusable and recyclable aluminium water cans. Microgaming has not forgotten about those who enjoy a bevvie or two at ICE, because they will be serving recyclable glass bottles, plastic-free coffee cups, and also wine goblets which have the ability to biodegrade within 12 weeks under commercial compost conditions!
Microgaming is a very ‘green’ company as is, considering their state of the art and eco-friendly brand new Isle of Man headquarters which was opened in 2017. This building was one of the island’s first offices to have received and achieved an Excellent Sustainability Rating from BREEAM. BREEAM is the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings, so this was a very big thing for them, and something that they were aiming for with this fantastic eco-building. Being ‘green’ is definitely the new trend for 2019, we need to save and help this planet as much as possible, so put that green foot down and take note from Microgaming!
