Ampersand, Clarion Gaming's free to join research and knowledge sharing initiative for professionals working in the global industry, will celebrate its second birthday next week in Las Vegas, the capital of gaming. The Ampersand Assembly is meeting the day prior to G2E with membership on course to break the symbolic 3,000 figure ahead of February’s edition of ICE London.
Ewa Bakun, Clarion Gaming’s Director of Industry Insight and Engagement and the person responsible for developing Ampersand, confirmed: “We have been delighted with the response to Ampersand which is unique to Clarion Gaming and whose membership continues to grow. Over 60 industry decision-makers and Ampersand members will be meeting once again prior to G2E for a day of free-flowing, open and focused conversations to brainstorm how the industry can address some of the key challenges and opportunities around land-based and interactive gambling, sports betting and hospitality.
"Using the format of Open Space, the Ampersand members and ICE North America friends will participate in what has become an annual meeting, very different from a traditional conference framework, to co-operate, share best practice and network in an informal and inspirational setting. The next Ampersand Assembly will then take place in London on 30 October followed by our biggest meeting of the year which takes place at ICE London in February 2020.”
Members receive a number of important benefits including access to exclusive Ampersand drinks receptions which are held alongside Clarion Gaming's global shows, entry to Ampersand Lounges at the ICE and iGB events and invitations to participate in the Ampersand Assemblies, such as the event taking place prior to G2E. Twice a year, Ampersand surveys its global membership base to gather intelligence on the biggest challenges in gaming. Results are then independently analysed and delivered in authoritative Ampersand State-of-Play Reports packed with invaluable business critical insights.
