Jason Gastwirth spent 15 years as president of the entertainment division of Caesars Entertainment. He pioneered superstar residencies at Caesars properties in Las Vegas and across the country. He left Caesars in late 2023 to form Interstate 15 Sports and Entertainment, joining with two partners to help guide hospitality companies seeking to enter the gaming industry in Las Vegas and beyond. He talks about how Las Vegas has recently become the center of the sports world to go along with its importance in the entertainment industry. He also explains how he helped Caesars develop its entertainment strategy to go along with the other non-gaming amenities it offers. Gastwirth spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at his offices in Las Vegas in March.
