US – AGA and Reed confirm Global Gaming Expo virtual event datesBy Phil - 2 September 2020
The American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions today released the schedule of virtual Global Gaming Expo offerings. Taking place October 27 to 28 2020, the program includes keynotes, education sessions, business meetings, and networking opportunities. The virtual platform will open for product discovery and schedule planning following a kick-off session on October 14 2020.
“G2E always brings the gaming industry together to learn, share innovation, and conduct business that will chart the future of gaming,” said AGA Senior Director of Strategic Communications and Responsibility Cait DeBaun. “While we all wish we could be together in Las Vegas, we’re excited to bring some of the G2E experience to attendees and exhibitors all over the world.”
The two-day program will convene thought leaders to share perspectives on pressing topics including COVID-19 recovery, payments modernisation, tribal gaming, what’s next for legalised sports betting in America, and more. G2E’s virtual platform will also enable exhibitors and buyers to conduct business through virtual showrooms, product demos, AI-driven matchmaking, and one-on-one meetings.
“As the industry continues to navigate reopening, G2E’s virtual offering will reconvene the G2E community to advance our collective recovery,” said G2E Event Director Korbi Carrison. “This platform allows us to bring the G2E experience directly to attendees wherever they are, providing access to education, and enabling the connections that make the in-person event special.”
Global travel restrictions and unknowns around the permissibility of large public gatherings this fall precluded the traditional, in-person event from taking place as scheduled 5-8 October 2020 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center.
Keynotes and education programming will be announced in the coming weeks.
