G2E is back and hopefully better than ever. Korbi Carrison, the event director for G2E, explains how the pandemic and the cancellation of last year’s in person event, has informed organizers about what is needed at this year’s show. She explains the health and safety concerns, reveals the keynote speakers and explains why this year’s show will be important to show the resilience of the gaming industry. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from the UNLV Blackfire Innovation Center in Las Vegas in last week.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
