Global Gaming Expo has been named one of the top 25 fastest growing trade shows in attendance by the American Gaming Association.

2016 was noted as one of the show’s biggest years to date in which there was a 6 percent increase in attendee registration and a 5 percent increase in conference registration.

“One of the main reasons for the incredible growth of G2E is the exponentially expanding variety of industries that are now involved in the gaming industry,” says Andrew Ortale, AGA’s vice president of industry services. “Whether you’re a restaurateur, spa director, video animator or one of the other hundreds of professions that have found a home in gaming, G2E has become the epicenter for them to grow their businesses at destination casinos around the world.”

G2E features conversations on the industry’s hottest topics with engaging programs by top experts aiming to prepare attendees for the casino gaming landscape. The show also presents an opportunity for exhibitors to reach the largest base of qualified gaming industry decision makers and buyers, showcase products and services to the industry on a global scale and grow their networks through access to new business connections.

“Innovation in the gaming industry is at an all-time high. Key to G2E’s recent growth is the continued development and enhancement of a business marketplace that showcases innovation and highlights the latest products in casino gaming to the biggest influencers in the industry," says Todd Sheahan, event director. "G2E has established itself as the ultimate convergence of the brightest minds showcasing state-of-the-art technology.”

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses. 

 

After 7 years of planning, the VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center is now open in downtown Muskegon. The official ribbon cutting took place on April 12, 2021.  

 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
