Sit Down and Cheer


Chairs from Gary Platt Manufacturing are world famous for unsurpassed comfort. And operator studies have shown when players are comfortable, they stay and play longer.

At G2E Booth 2618, Gary Platt will show seating solutions that will make operators sit down and cheer in collections for the casino, hotel and hospitality venues.

Gary Platt will introduce the new sportsbook line, including the Sportsbook Club chair. As comfortable as the chair in any man cave, it’s perfect for a day at the sportsbook watching football games or races. Built for maximum comfort, this lounge-style chair features oversized arms and back, reclining back, USB charger, cup holder and Gary Platt’s exclusive foam.

Other sportsbook collection chairs include the GX2, Lido, Lugano, Monaco and Sonoma. Each is hand-crafted and can be customized to fit a property’s individual brand.

Gary Platt also will introduce the new Signature collection. Each chair bears the name of the company’s legendary founder. These premium seating solutions are ideal for high-limit areas, with Gary Platt’s exclusive foam for outstanding comfort, plus distinctive designs and finishes, like the Savannah’s waved edge, the Tesla’s sporty wrap-around back and the patented Monaco.

Matching comfort with convenience, Gary Platt’s quick-change seat is designed with just two bolts, allowing replacement of an existing seat in under one minute to get players back in the game with renewed comfort.

Gary Platt also offers seating solutions for all hospitality areas—restaurants, convention spaces and guest rooms.

The Sierra Nevada Hospitality collection features dozens of styles and virtually limitless configurations for restaurants, bars and lounges of all types and sizes. The line also includes seating solutions for reception, lobby and guest service areas, plus banquet and meeting rooms—where operators finally can replace notoriously uncomfortable convention seating with the new Kopa stack chair.

Designed specifically for conference and banquet areas, it incorporates all of the ergonomics of casino seating into a stack chair with base legs that are light, durable and easily stacked.

For the guest room, the new Eclipse office-style chair brings casino-seating comfort to guests’ in-room desk area. They feature an upholstered seat, a full synchro spider-style base and adjustable arms that fold back completely, available with upholstery or mesh. It’s also the perfect choice for the back office, executive, meeting room or dealer seating.

To discover the chairs that will make operators sit down and cheer, please visit Gary Platt Manufacturing at Booth 2618.
