LAS VEGAS – NBA legend and two-time Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson will deliver a keynote address at the largest casino-gaming event in the world, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), presented by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions, on Thursday, October 5 at 9:00 a.m.

Johnson will give a 30-minute address that will share how he successfully transitioned from exceptional athlete to business executive, parlaying the skills and tenacity he acquired on the court into a winning formula for successful business ventures. Johnson’s speech will be followed by a 15-minute conversation with American Gaming Association (AGA) President and CEO Geoff Freeman covering his views on the future of sports betting legalization and the possibilities of it being accepted into the mainstream sports industry.

“Magic Johnson’s experience on and off the court has helped shape his successful business career,” said Freeman. “I look forward to talking with him about the future of sports betting.”

New to G2E this year, keynote addresses will take place on the Special Events Stage in Hall D on the Trade Show Floor.

In addition to Johnson’s keynote, G2E 2017 will become the epicenter of debate on the future of sports betting in the United States. Attendees can explore the issue in depth by attending G2E’s seminars on sports betting where experts will discuss an array of issues related to legalizing sports betting, including:
