Gambling Commission Condemns Attires at Trade Show

Represent your ladies more respectfully

Scantily clothed ladies are “unacceptable” at a wagering industry conference, UK’s gambling regulator has stated.

Yesterday, Sarah Harrison informed the BBC that some ladies employed at the ICE Totally Gaming conference were cladding “little more than swimsuits”, while gentlemen wore smart outfits and suits.

The chief director of the Gambling Commission stated the body might shun other ICE Total Gaming occasions.

But the conference’s manager argued the criticism was directed at a “tiny” number of organizations participating.

Kate Chambers, the managing chief of ICE London event, also added the conference has been telling exhibitors to represent ladies more respectfully.

Have you attended these events?

The 3-day ICE Total Gaming conference (happening from 7th to 10th February), held at London’s Excel Centre, is a global showcase for the gambling industry, attended by wagering firms,  casino operators, and technology providers.

This is a totally unacceptable trend

Ms. Harrison also informed BBC’s Radio 4’s Today program of her disappointment at seeing a gender inequality at the event, with some ladies on exhibition booths doing promotional work in exposing clothing. 

She said, “The gentlemen were cladding smart suits and ladies were being requested to put on not more than swimsuits. That is totally unacceptable: it isn’t reflective of the modern society.”

“This isn’t about political dos and don’ts. It is about good governance and regulation because businesses with a more diverse employee are highly likely to make the right decisions. And that is vital from a regulator’s angle,” she added.

She continued, “Given our spotlight is on safer and fairer gaming, businesses that represent their clients are more likely to be able to enact the protections and the safeguards.”

Her comments emerged amid fury over the dishonorable Presidents Club gentle-only dinner and crusades against the use of ‘Walk-on ladies’ at sports events. 

Ms. Harrison, who is exciting the Gambling Commission for a position at the Department for Business, Industrial Strategy, and Energy, spoke at the ICE event just a few days after Formula One ended ‘grid ladies’.
