The G2E 2020 is scheduled for next week. The Global Gaming Expo is a mega event that impacts the entire gaming, wagering and entertainment landscape. It is traditionally held in Las Vegas every year. This is the first time the conference will be totally virtual. I am excited about exploring the meetings and panel sessions without moving from one assembly hall to another. While I will miss the interaction of talking face to face and catching up with business colleagues, this is more feasible due to the pandemic.
The conference will have informative sessions that will discuss the following topics:
The reopening of casinos in regional and resort markets;
The surge of sports betting and what it will transcend to;
The role that media plays in sports betting and the partnerships that have emerged in 2020;
The opening of casinos and sports betting venues in existing markets that have limited capacity due to COVID 19.
There will also be the vendors that will provide the latest technological innovations to attract new and younger patrons. Major developers have products that are cutting edge in terms of design and functionality. 5G is the game changer and all prudent operators are looking to incorporate it into their social media and IT concepts. The top institutions of higher learning will weigh in with data and analytics to help make qualified decisions concerning the direction for your gaming endeavors.
I will be live tweeting on Twitter on Wednesday providing you with updates and information. If you want the latest projections and opinions from some of the top gaming executives in the world, I encourage you to follow me.
The dates of the G2E are October 27 and 28.
There will be a recap next week in Bettors Insider.
