After a long and difficult deliberation, Spintec have decided to withdraw from participating in this year’s ICE. The decision was especially challenging as the show has been a staple in their operations for decades with great success. The exhibition is one of the most important gaming industry events in the world and Spintec was always extremely committed to participating, exhibiting, and promoting the event with their partners.
This year, however, complicated circumstances prevent Spintec to participate to the best of their ability and potential. Not only is the volatile situation related to the ongoing pandemic preventing several of their partners to travel, recent withdrawals by the largest exhibitors are also bound to decrease the attraction for international visitors. Additionally, the effort to participate in the fair would be much increased this year due to more complicated Brexit-related import procedures, operational challenges due to the Easter holidays and the proximity of the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention.
This creates a double bind that puts Spintec in an untenable position. Despite their commitment to the trade show and their long-standing partnership with the organisers of ICE, they have been compelled to withdraw their participation. Instead, they will focus their efforts on exhibiting in 2023, when the circumstances are bound to be more favourable both to the company and to their partners.
