Global Gaming Expo 2014 to Feature Sheldon Adelson, Steve Wynn

The Global Gaming Expo 2014 to be held in Las Vegas Tuesday September 30 thru October 2 will feature the likes of casino giants Sheldon Adelson, Chairperson of Las Vegas Sands Corp, Steve Wynn, Head of Wynn Resorts, and Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International.

Others confirmed for the world’s biggest gaming event include Patti Hart, CEO of IGT, Jamie Odell, CEO of Aristocrat Leisure Limited, David Baazov, CEO of Amaya and James Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming and Chairman of Hard Rock International.

We’re thrilled to bring together an impressive group of industry leaders who have helped to lead the growth of our industry into the economic engine it is today,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “We look forward to hearing from each of our speakers about how we can strengthen gaming in the years to come.”



Adelson and Wynn will each offer exclusive keynote addresses to G2E seminar attendees on Tuesday, September 30 and Thursday, October 2, respectively. Additionally, G2E will bring together global leaders for conversations about the state of gaming.  This will be the first major gambling conference attended by Adelson since he began lobbying efforts against US legalization of online gambling.

Both State of the Industry keynotes remain open to all G2E attendees.

G2E’s show floor will be its largest in five years, showcasing more than 450 exhibitors from around the world. In addition to announcing new Hollywood and other entertainment-themed slot machines before they hit casino floors across the country and world, G2E will feature conversations with industry leaders on the most important industry topics, such as:

 

• Skill-based gaming trends and consumer behavior;

 

• Capturing the millennial customer; and

 

• Big data and cyber security.

In partnership with the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association, G2E will also introduce its first-ever Hotel Conference, which will deliver a full spectrum of hotel and lodging content covering the latest trends in revenuemanagement and technology and spotlight non-gaming amenities, products and services that resorts need to drive traffic and create the ultimate guest experience.



“G2E has always been an event ‘by the industry and for the industry,’” said Mike Johnson, industry vice president at Reed Exhibitions, which puts on the popular expo. “The improvements brought to this year’s seminars and exhibitions are a direct response to meet the needs of the diverse gaming industry.”



No other event offers exhibitors as wide an array of products and services to meet every conceivable need in the gaming marketplace. With more than 450 exhibitors already on board and more expected, the exhibition floor will feature everything from gaming security to gaming devices to video gaming technology to slot ticketing innovations to marketing solutions. G2E pavilions will demonstrate iGaming, entertainment, security and food and beverage options.

G2E delivers the most comprehensive look at the international gaming and hospitality industries to date with five days of exclusive launches, trend forecasting, cutting-edge discussions and industry-leading speakers. For more information or to register for G2E 2014 visit www.globalgamingexpo.com.
