The e-Gaming dice continues to roll in the Isle of Man’s favour at ICE 2015
The remainder of 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting and pivotal year, both for Cavendish Trust and the Isle of Man’s e-Gaming sector as a whole.
That’s the verdict of a lead Cavendish Trust Director, after the company returned from exhibiting at this February’s highly successful ICE Totally Gaming event in London which attracted a new record of 25,000 visitors.
Now established as ICE regulars, Isle of Man headquartered Cavendish has long been connected with the Island’s flourishing e-gaming industry, providing a comprehensive range of back office and advisory services.
This year’s show was held against a backdrop of significant change in the gaming arena, especially within the UK, which has seen the introduction of Place of Consumption (POC) tax and the end of so called ‘white listing.’
Policy clarification within the UK’s gambling regime has now removed a fair degree of uncertainty amongst many gaming operators. “People now know where they stand and I see this as being a significant benefit to the Isle of Man. This renewed confidence was reflected in the number of new enquiries we received at ICE, many of which were start up ventures. Indeed interest amongst e-Gaming start-ups is an extremely healthy development in our view and an area where Cavendish will become increasingly aligned,” she predicted.
“Our Isle of Man office remains at the forefront of the e-Gaming sector, continuing to provide unrivalled levels of expertise, support and incentives for all-comers whether they are established operators or newcomers to the market,.” The lead Cavendish director was supported at ICE 2015 by Tim Craine, the Isle of Man Government’s former Head of e-Gaming who has been a Cavendish Non-Executive Director since 2013.
Meanwhile, from a corporate expansion viewpoint, ICE 2015 was also significant for Cavendish with the firm’s Jersey based sister company, Garfield Bennett, making its debut appearance as exhibitors. To read more go to http://www.garfieldbennett.com
