When Korbi Carrison was named by RX as event director of G2E five years ago, she was the first person with a gaming background to take that position. With more than 20 years’ experience in gaming, now Event Vice President Carrison understands the concerns and issues that exhibitors and attendees bring to G2E. In her five years with G2E, she has helped to navigate the most disruptive business interruption in modern tradeshow history when Covid struck. When the 2020 show was cancelled, she helped RX partner American Gaming Association to produce a virtual show that made sense of both exhibitors and attendees. When G2E returned last year with major restrictions due to Covid mandates, exhibitors and attendees returned with lower expectations. But 2022 is different. With most Covid protocols set aside, expectations are sky high and Carrison is determined to deliver. She met with GGB Publisher Roger Gros via Zoom in August to explain what to expect at G2E 2022.

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.
