Cooke Leaving Clarion Gaming
By Staff
The organisers of the annual International Gaming Expo (IGE), Clarion Gaming, has announced that Karen Cooke has stepped down from her role as its Head of Exhibitions.

Clarion stated that Cooke has a wealth of experience in the gaming and gambling sectors and has decided to end a nine-year association with the annual London show, the last four of which was spent at the helm.

“I have experienced the exhibitions first as an exhibitor and then an organiser,” said Cooke.

“Professionally, 2009 was a very successful show and I feel comfortable that now is the right time to take some time out and recharge the batteries. I will then be taking up another role within the gaming industry. I have been flattered and heartened by the good wishes I have received from members of both the gaming and amusements sectors since news of my decision broke.”

“Karen is a one-off and we are very sad to see her go,” said Peter Rusbridge, Chief Executive for Clarion.

“She played a central role in smoothing the integration of the shows into the Clarion portfolio and was pivotal in the development and successful launch of the International Gaming Expo. But she is leaving the shows in the capable hands of the existing and highly experienced team, which has already commenced planning for 2010.”
