Clever Duck Media are the organisers behind the International Gaming Awards (IGA), one of the most recognised award-giving events in the industry with its attention also turned toward creativity an innovation as well as to charity. We’ve just received information that the venue for the upcoming event scheduled for 2018 has been chosen and nomination procedures are starting this month.
International gaming Awards (IGA), one of the most acclaimed gaming award events, will be back for the 11th edition of the show in 2018. Clever Duck Media – the organisers behind the show – have just announced that the venue hosting this next edition will be nothing less than Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London. This 5-star lush yet quaint hotel owned by the Marriott International, placed in upstreet Mayfair seems like an apt choice for, what some consider, ‘the Oscar of Gaming’. This hotel has a history of being the venue of choice for several grand events.
The IGA prides itself on rewarding several different aspects of the industry based on high standards and achievements in different areas. However, it doesn’t only limit itself at being an award-giving ceremony. The participants, who’ve become more numerous over the years, benefit from significantly increased exposure and recognition in the industry and by government bodies, while everyone involved actively contributes to charity by working hand-in-hand with different organisations. Fuelled by a drive towards increased innovation and creativity, this joint force initiative seeks to understand, educate, and develop the tastes of both participants in the show and the targeted gaming audience. And due to the ongoing success of the show, the nomination categories are said to increase as of this year. The nomination process will open this month in preparation for the 2018 event. The focus will be both to celebrate outstanding achievements on the fore and to celebrate some of the best, industry-changing work.
In 2017, awards mostly relevant to online casino platforms and games included the following:
We are curious to see what Clever Duck Media has in store for the upcoming edition of the show in terms of entertainment, awards, and more. We’re surely up for a good start with such a lavish choice of venue being the Grosvenor House. So, stay tuned as we find out more about the IGA.
