Global Gaming Expo to focus on Internet gaming

Sep 9, 2013 9:08 PM

Station Casinos’ success with Nevada’s first-in-the-nation real-money Internet poker activity, soon to be followed by a full schedule of Internet gambling on casino games in Atlantic City, and then a similar schedule in Delaware, has the entire gaming industry poised for an unknown future.

It will be old-fashioned bricks and motor casinos against home gambling on the Internet.

To address some of the concerns expressed by the industry’s executives, Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2013 will provide attendees with the means to gain critical insights and comprehensive perspectives about what is on the horizon for this rapidly developing sector of the gaming industry.

G2E will be held Sept. 23-26 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

As the G2E has posted regarding the forthcoming event, “From new products and technologies to educational sessions and invaluable networking opportunities, G2E will serve as the leading educational resource and ideal learning environment on iGaming.”

The event is co-sponsored by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions.

Courtney Muller, Reed senior vice president, remarked, “As the Internet gambling sector has developed in the U.S. and around the world, we’ve seen increased interest from G2E attendees for access to more educational programming on this issue. The iGaming features at G2E will arm attendees with the knowledge to react to the changing face of the industry, take advantage of new opportunities and be prepared for what lies ahead.”

Featured will be iGaming Congress, a one-day event that will take place on Monday, Sep. 23 and will focus on the potential impact of the legislation of Internet gambling in the U.S. and iGaming Conference Track, a two-day activity on Tuesday and Wednesday that is designed to provide an overview of Internet gambling operations and regulations, around the world.
