Ernest L. Stevens, Jr., Chairman and national spokesperson for the National Indian Gaming Association, was the first recipient of an ICE Landmark award when he attended the world's biggest gaming technology event as the guest of organizers, Clarion Gaming.
The Landmark Award, which was presented by Clarion Gaming’s Managing Director Kate Chambers, was in recognition of the enormous contribution Ernest L. Stevens, Jr. had made in highlighting the positive impacts of Indian gaming. Another reason is his support for the development of the ICE brand, including the launch of ICE North America, the second edition of which takes place across 13-14 May, New Orleans, USA.
Speaking at the award presentation, which was held following the National Indian Gaming Association ICE North America breakfast, Kate Chambers said: “Ernest L. Stevens, Jr. has worked with great commitment, dedication and professionalism to educate and raise awareness of Indian gaming. During his period of office, Indian gaming revenues have risen over $39.1 billion, making Tribal government gaming the largest segment of the industry in the United States. On a more personal note, he has been a source of great inspiration for myself and the team responsible for developing the ICE brand. The insight, kindness, and support he has shown over the last decade have been greatly appreciated and I am absolutely delighted to present Ernest L. Stevens, Jr. with this ICE Landmark Award.”
