Global Gaming Expo to be Hosted at Sands Las Vegas Casino Resort in 2011

30 November 2010 by Devon Chappell

G2EI suppose it’s never too late to start planning for the next Global Gaming Expo. Lovingly referred to as G2E, the Global Gaming Expo is one of the largest and most attended conference events for professionals in the gaming industry (check out the video at the bottom of this post for a look at the exhibition floor). Having just wrapped up earlier this month at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is where the conference is normally held, G2E organizers have revealed that – for the first time – the premiere casino-entertainment event will be held at the Las Vegas Sands Casino.

The date to mark on your calendar is October 3-6, 2011. If you’re a casino operator and/or are looking to provide a product/service for the gaming industry (both land-based and online), now is the time to consider exhibition and sponsorship options. As mentioned, the G2E is always a large event and will very likely sell out. If you want to attend, online registration is available (not just yet for 2011) at a discounted price, while same-day tickets go for at least 25% more (depending on the attendance package).

A straight ticket to peruse all of the exhibitors on the main conference floor costs $99 online and $175 if purchased at the door. There are several packages to choose from – the most expensive and comprehensive being the 4-day All-Access Conference. Although the price tag is more hefty at $1,600, the benefits are numerous. Think of it as a crash-course, real-world gaming education with free continental breakfasts. Oh, and let’s not forget the keynote speaker luncheon.

Speaking of keynote speakers, this year’s was none other than Harrah’s Entertainment CEO, Gary Loveman, whose address was titled: “The Stockholm Syndrom: Why Addressing the Misinformation That Plagues Gaming is our top Priority”. Sounds good to me.

What also sounds good is the UNLV International Gaming Institute (IGI) Certificate of Completion, which is awarded to all attendees who complete at least five sessions. This is a great opportunity for anyone just starting out or seeking to make a career in the casino gaming industry. With a state-of-the-art casino laboratory for testing casino games and software, as well as a high-tech surveillance center for teaching casino floor security, let’s just say that UNLV’s IGI accreditation carries some serious weight to it.

But the G2E isn’t just for professionals in the brick ‘n mortar casino industry either. As we all know, the online and offline gaming worlds are merging. Harrah’s itself is has an interactive department and has already launched two Euro online casinos, WSOP Casino, not to mention WSOP Poker. And let’s not forget about Caesars Online Casino catering to the UK crowd. In fact, the hot topic at this last G2E was all about online gambling regulation and how Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, holds the cards for getting gaming regulated in the States.
