What a bummer, man! First, the NBA postponed games. Then, the NHL decided it was time to cut off their sports. Then March Madness was taken away from us. Then, Major League Baseball postponed its 2020 season. It’s been a nonstop trail of action for the past two weeks. Now, we are super bummed about a major event in the industry.
We here at Knup Sports were so pumped to take a trip to the Big Easy and talk to all the experts in the field. For me personally, I have never been the NOLA and was salivating over the fact of heading down there for a few days. ICE North America was slated for May 13-14, 2020. But, as with everything in our country right now – the event was postponed until the Spring of 2021.
This came as a suggestion from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in relation to the latest Corona Virus pandemic. Many refer to it as COVID-19. ICE was quoted as saying:
“as the situation rapidly evolves, the health and safety of our visitors, staff and partner community is, and always will be our primary focus.”
For those of you that have never been to an ICE Conference, and are involved inside the world of sports betting, you MUST attend soon! From the ICE North America Website at – https://www.icenorthamerica.com
“The ICE North America Conference is a two-day series of conference tracks, which takes place alongside the ICE North America exhibition. Immerse yourself in the broadest and most insightful conference in the US gaming industry.”
Several industry leaders were slated to be part of the agenda at ICE North America in New Orleans. It will be interesting to see what the new slate of speakers will be for the Spring of 2021. Be patient, as ICE is working on the date, location, and speakers for the next conference. For now, stay safe and keep working hard.
