Clarion Gaming appoints Andy Ventris as ICE London event director

by Joe Gallop

Clarion Gaming has appointed former London Book Fair director Andy Ventris as event director for the ICE London brand.

Reporting directly to Clarion Gaming managing director Stuart Hunter, Ventris joins Clarion Gaming as preparations for the 2023 edition of the show begins. The event runs from 7-9 February, returning to its traditional slot, with 90% of stand space at ExCeL London already booked.

Most recently Ventris (pictured right) served as director of the London Book Fair, responsible for the brand’s global strategy and delivering the April 2022 edition of the event, which attracts around 20,000 visitors per year. He has a background in marketing and was previously event manager for RX’s Luxury Travel Portfolio.

Hunter (pictured left) said: “Andy has enjoyed a glittering career working with stakeholders to grow and develop brands across a number of contrasting sectors and in five continents.

“The London Book Fair plays an important role within the publishing industry, as ICE does for gaming, and the most recent event which Andy led faced similar industry challenges and opportunities as ICE.

“Having worked in a start-up sports events business early in his career, Andy also is driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, a culture that also underpins and drives the gambling sector.”

Ventris said: “I’m hugely excited to be joining the team, working with clients to deliver first class solutions and bringing my insight and events knowledge to the exciting and dynamic space in which ICE operates.”
