The European Casino Association (ECA) which represents the interests of 700 casinos with over 60,000 employees in 29 countries is preparing for what it anticipates will be a record attendance of casino industry professionals when ICE 2025 launches in Barcelona (20 – 22 January).

ECA Secretary General Hermann Pamminger, who has worked in the industry since joining Casinos Austria International in 1991 confirmed the growing sense of anticipation surrounding the relocation to Barcelona. He stated: “Whether it has been held at London Olympia, Earls Court London or most recently ExCeL London,  ICE has served the industry superbly well with ECA members contributing  to the show’s success story helping it to achieve its status as the world-leading business event for the global industry.

“2025 will be the first time that ICE and its predecessor ATE will have been staged outside the UK since launching nine decades ago and the momentous decision to relocate to a new and much bigger venue in an exciting vibrant city on mainland Europe has captured the imagination of the ECA and its members.

“The ECA’s elected Board of Directors which consists of senior and experienced representatives of the European licensed and land-based casino industry is planning the presence in Barcelona in line with our core aims to address and promote issues related to casino operations and increase awareness of the industry amongst EU policy makers and stakeholders.

“The feedback that we are receiving from ECA members who are based in 29 countries suggest that more casino industry executives than ever before will be at ICE meeting with colleagues, participating in the world-leading content programme and being inspired by the innovations presented by the largest collection of exhibitors, curated for all sectors and verticals of the industry. This includes our UK members who are excited to explore this new location to engage with the wider European industry.

“I believe that the move to Barcelona will accelerate the number of casino executives and buyers from across Europe attending. Every successful brand needs to evolve and  the relocation will dawn a new era of opportunity for Europe’s land-based casino industry. ICE 2025 promises to be a landmark celebration and the excitement amongst our members is palpable. We are also looking to maintain and possibly increase the number of our formal meetings and events that take place during ‘ICE’ week such as our Board Meeting and General Assembly as well as the traditional CEO dinner – to cater to this increased need”

The first edition of ICE to be held outside the UK will feature a record 1,000 exhibitors comprising world leading innovators representing every sector and from every jurisdiction. ICE and the co-located iGB Affiliate – which will occupy 120,000 square metres of The Gran Via, Barcelona compared to the 100,000 sqm used in London – connect the entire global industry and provide access to the very latest cutting-edge innovations, technological solutions, regulatory updates, and insights which assist entrepreneurial businesses to enter new jurisdictions and build market share. The Convention Centre which is located in Hall 8 comprises a modular and versatile space with seating for between 3,000 and 12,000 people.

Leading gaming technology Group NOVOMATIC was an exhibitor at the international trade fair FIJMA from May 7-9, 2024, boasting a stand full of innovative products for the Spanish market. The Group’s local subsidiary NOVOMATIC Spain launched the brand new XTENSION LINK Volume 2, which was the star of the show.

The international gaming trade show FIJMA took place from May 7 to 9 at the IFEMA exhibition centre in Madrid, bringing together a large number of industry leaders. NOVOMATIC showcased an extensive range of products perfected for the Spanish market.

This arcade game was presented in the high performing BLACK EDITION II 1.49J cabinet and attracted a lot of attention from visitors, especially with its GOLDEN SPINS feature which ultimately increases the player’s chances of winning. The XTENSION LINK Volume 2 with its ten thrilling titles, Expanding Reels Feature and Free Games takes the player experience to new heights.

“This cabinet is the result of hard and innovative work that has addressed the needs of our distributors and operators in order to offer a versatile and attractive experience for their gaming establishments,” Jordi Pedragosa, Commercial Director of NOVOMATIC Spain, said.

Other new products on display were the ROYAL LINK, “The Royal Seal for Arcades”, which offers extraordinary quality and excellence for an attractive price, and the NOVO LINE POWER LINK GOLD, which has come to Spain with a revamped and enlarged collection of games. Within this diverse offer for arcades, more powerful models were showcased, such as IMPERA LINK Series 2, CASH CONNECTION Fusion, River Queen Roulette or CLOVER LINK Xtreme, the latter from APEX.

NOVOMATIC’s local subsidiary also presented a wide range of products, exuding a level of freshness and innovation that positively captivated visitors. The section dedicated to the bar segment saw versatility resonating throughout these two new launches: NOVO LINE Supra Cash, with its fascinating games library including three roulette titles and IMPERA Cash Fusion, where Progressive Jackpot titles are combined with IMPERA classics. The second edition of NOVO LINE Power Cash was also shown with a series of new titles. All these models were showcased in the Winner HD+ cabinet, an evolution that features the NV22 bill acceptor. The nearly 1400 m2 of floor space tailored to the company stood out for the excellent way in which the company’s innovative products were staged and presented. Lighting and other decorative elements, fused with cutting-edge technology, played an important role in capturing the attention of visitors, for whom there were plenty of gifts and activities to be enjoyed. Of all the stand’s events, the one that stood out was the “Beat the Champ” event by Chris Mark, world table soccer champion, with whom guests could battle in an exciting duel.

Bernhard Teuchmann, Managing Director of the Product and Technology Division, said: “Participating once again in FIJMA has been a unique experience that has given us the opportunity to strengthen relationships with our customers and show our commitment to innovation. Our most sincere thanks go to all those who worked on preparing and attending this event with the same passion and responsibility that form the essence of who we are.”
