ICS Newsletter – November 2015

Hello everyone and welcome along to another exciting ICS company newsletter. Here is what has been happening over the last four weeks.

 

General State of Things

Most of our current projects have been running smoothly, but we have lost a couple of small ones recently due to the companies involved having other priorities.

However, we are close to finally implementing a deal with another potential client while there are possible other contracts in the pipeline after our successful visit to the EiG gaming conference in Berlin during the middle of October. Hopefully we will have more updates in future newsletters.

Meanwhile, one of our key partners has asked us to change the articles we provide for them as they would like to focus exclusively on the Ryder Cup, Euro 2016 and the Olympics. Consequently, instead of news articles everyday, we have been asked to write more feature-led analytical pieces.

 

iGaming Overview

Later this week, ICS-digital will launch a new video project called the iGaming Overview. Zoe and Emer are presenting this fast-paced and informative show, with the content going live every Thursday morning.

The aim is to provide a simple iGaming newscast featuring the latest industry developments for people interested in the gambling sector to watch on their lunch break, so be sure to keep an eye on our YouTube channel for the latest editions.

 

eSports

eSports have become increasingly popular in recent years and many bookmakers have opened sportsbooks to tap into this burgeoning market.

One major Asian-facing bookmaker has asked us to write regular news and feature articles in English and Korean to boost interest in competitive video gaming, with key tournaments such as the IEM San Jose and DreamHack featuring heavily. Our writers will be covering all of the major video games, including LoL, DotA2, Starcraft and CS:GO, as competitions take place across the world.

As a result, ICS has set up a dedicated eSports team and we hope to develop in this field going forward. This work will start in mid-November and we are hoping to generate more interest from other potential clients in the coming months.

Jumping Ahead

ICS once again produced and transmitted Cheltenham Radio at the track’s opening meeting of the season last month.

Journalists on course and in our Leeds studios provided exciting coverage of the whole of The Showcase meeting from as soon as the gates opened.

The station is broadcast on FM in the Cheltenham area as well as on course via earpieces, while it is also streamed on the Cheltenham Racecourse official website.

 

As ever, if you are interested in any of our content or services, please do not hesitate to contact us.
