Sep 9, 2003 6:37 AM

Guarding the safety of customers and preserving the integrity of operations have always been priorities for the gaming industry, but events of the past two years have raised the bar for security standards, increasing the need for newer, more innovative security products and services.

At Global Gaming Expo (G2E), attendees will be provided a unique opportunity to learn about and see the latest security products and trends that will shape the future of casino security and surveillance.

The gaming industry conference and trade show will debut a new conference track focused exclusively on casino security and surveillance issues and will feature a Security and Surveillance Pavilion on the show floor.

The new security and surveillance conference track will feature leaders from the industry and is designed to give attendees the tools necessary to develop and manage comprehensive security and surveillance systems in their facilities around the world.

Discussion topics will focus on a variety of issues and trends within the field, including innovations in casino security, techniques to improve surveillance, strategies to prevent fraud, legal issues surrounding surveillance, and more.

Sponsored by ASIS International, the Security and Surveillance Pavilion will showcase world-class suppliers of security devices and services. The dedicated 7,000 square feet of exhibit space will display such products as CCTV, facial recognition software, multiplexers, alarms, dice and voucher bags, and other products.

G2E 2003 also will feature dedicated pavilions and conference sessions focusing on two of the most popular industry growth areas among attendees in recent years: bingo and interactive gaming.

Introduced in 2001, G2E’s Bingo Pavilion features the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of bingo paper, Class II electronic games, daubers, printed tickets and other products related to the bingo and charitable gaming industries.

Last year’s Bingo Pavilion generated a 400 percent increase in registered attendees with specific interest in bingo and charitable gaming from 2001 totals, so G2E has expanded the pavilion space this year.

"The Bingo Pavilion allows attendees from around the globe to see the newest technologies and gaming concepts for one of the most popular games in the world," said Bob Fulton, vice president of marketing at Arrow International. "Our role in the overall gaming industry continues to expand each year, and G2E allows us to showcase the new product solutions that will drive the future of the bingo industry."

The Interactive Gaming Pavilion also debuted in 2001 and saw similar increases in attendee interest last year. Primary interactive gaming business attendees increased 285 percent from 2001 to 2002, and interactive gaming product interest rose 465 percent.

This year, the pavilion will continue to highlight the premier online gaming suppliers of software and Web site products and technologies. The pavilion will feature exhibits from Boss Media, Cryptologic, Densitron, Gaming and Entertainment Today, Integrated Games, Outbound Systems, as well as eGaming Review and iGaming Business.

Industry supporters including Casino Careers Online, Interactive Gaming Council, Gaming Floor, and the River City Group will also be featured.
